Torche (and wig) @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
Torche

Torche headlined a triple threat of massive riffery with Big Business and Helms Alee at Music Hall of Williamsburg on Wednesday (7/20) as part of their larger tour together. For Helms Alee, the show was one of two that night with the band signing on for a late night show with The Austerity Program at The Charleston. The HydraHead trio of bands are currently in upstate New York and tour their way back to the West Coast by early August before splitting with Helms Alee and linking up with Thrones for more dates.

Big Business are currently touring in support of their new Quadruple Single EP out July 26th via their own Gold Metal Records imprint. Look for a full EP stream on Monday at BrooklynVegan.

I'm a lawyer. And I love these bands. So what? How are YOU not lame?

what's with bands wearing their own shirts lately? when and why did that become an acceptable trend? are they not aware of the "that guy" rule from PCU?

"It's okay to be miserable, haters."
that's what you get in this bored, entitled society of pasty white douchebags with computers and no real employment

^ Ha! No shit! Time for a fucking revoution, lol!

Wish I could've been at this show, but I caught Burnt By The Sun instead.

So glad Torche finally got someone to sing harmonies! Also thought it was pretty awesome that by the end of the night the drummers' kick drum was was behind a wall of cinder blocks that the sound crew had to keep adding to keep the mic/drum in place.
