Jonathan of Torche at Metro in Chicago, Oct 2012 (more by Jimmy Farabi)
BrooklynVegan and Invisible Oranges are proud to announce the return of Torche to NYC at Saint Vitus on March 2, a one-off appearance for the sunny sludge metal Floridians. Support is still TBA, but tickets are on sale.
In related news, 50% of Torche (namely Jonathan Nuñez and Rick Smith) also serve as part of the grind crew Shitstorm. THAT band will be involved in a whopper of a show in Miami.... the FIRST show in ages from the legendary Infest! That band, who are confirmed to reunite for Maryland Deathfest and Chaos in Tejas in May, will join Strong Intention, Magrudergrind, Insult, Shitstorm, Asshole Parade and Vaccine for the March 9 appearance at Churchill's in Miami. More details, including tickets can be found here.
All Torche dates and a stream of 2012 favorite Harmonicraft is below.
Members of Torche and Asshole Parade converge to form Post Teens, a five piece punk crew welcoming their new The Heat EP on June 5th via No Idea. Clocking in at a short-but-sweet six minutes over as many songs, Post Teens mine the snotty melodic punk territory occupied by current favorites like The Spits and recently seen on the latest Toys That Kill record. Stream the title track for the first time below. The new EP is the follow-up to last-year's debut 7" which hit via Sound Study Recordings and features "Fucked Up Perception", available in video form below.
Post Teens are on the road in late May with the great Mauser, playing a string fo dates on their way toward Chaos in Tejas on June 2nd, where they'll team up with Dopamines, Joyce Manor (who recently played NYC), Shoppers, Wiccans and Creem (who have a new 12" due via Deranged) for a whopper of a show at Scoot Inn.
All tour dates, those Post Teens streams, and a full album stream of the new Creem LP are below.
The Fest is back for round 11 (!) adding bands from across the spectrum of punk rock for the multi-day Gainesville, Florida extravaganza. The Fest announced its initial lineup earlier this month but has doubled that number, bringing the total tally to a whopping 217, and there are more to go! The lineup includes Lagwagon, Naked Raygun, Baroness, Red Fang, Off with Their Heads, Torche, Valient Thorr, 7 Seconds, F.Y.P., Braid, Titus Andronicus, Toys That Kill, Underground Railroad to Candyland, Frank Turner and many more (see below). Tickets are now on sale (and sold out quick last year).
Full lineup is below, expect to see some surprises at The Fest as well; Sleepytime Trio reunited there last year.
