"After a lot of waiting, Torche were utterly enormous at The Charleston last night. Hope they raised some cash to replace their stolen gear." - HeavierThanAir

Torche with touring guitarist Matt @ The Charleston
Torche

In light of the recent jack move done on their van, Torche played a surprise intimate show last night (5/26) with Tournament and Passive Aggressor at The Charleston. The trio (previously a four piece) featured a touring guitarist, "Max from Miami", who helped further fill out the band's sound, and add to the general mayhem at the show (and make them a four piece again).

Torche plays NYC again TONIGHT (5/26), this time with Coheed & Cambria and Circa Survive at Rumsey Playfield.

In addition, the pending Boris/Torche split FINALLY has a release date, July 16th. Current Torche dates and more shots from The Charleston are below...

This show was bonkers. The second "In Return" started, the crowd fuckin' ERUPTED and didn't stop until the last note (literally, that low ass note they played for 30 seconds that wasn't part of any song). Fun as hell!

It was the best crowd I've ever been part of at a show. It's true, the whole place erupted but were totally in sync. It was the coolest thing. Seriously, amazing show!

Oh, and in addition: they finally played "GRENADES". Saw them twice as a trio (no lead guitar=no song), so I'm glad I finally heard this sucker live. Good shit.

Wait, which is ironic, the songs or the comments?

Fedora Dude was the only non-loving being at that show. Awesome show!

Really awesome show. That support beam sure came in handy.

how much was cover?

Torche and Boris together is the ultimate double bill for me. Add Acid Mothers Temple and its a wet dream come true.

Id like to see the cute pekingese jam with a low D chord for an hour.

Why was I at a BENEFIT for these fucking guys at Cake Shop, when they are playing at Charleston. Well, because Pigs played, but still, it's a little fucked up.

Siamese Dream and Mellon Collie were really good albums. Got them when they came out, still throw them on at times and think they're great. It saddens me when I hear bands from that era when I was a teenager and hear their new stuff and it's so clear how they've lost it, they sound desperate to recapture a sound/magic that they haven't had in 15 years (holy shit).... And then I realize that is not unlike a lot of us.
