Torche at Beerland during SXSW (more here)

After their recent van robbery in Chicago, Hydra Head Records said that, “Torche is already sorting out potential DIY gigs in the states…tentatively for Vermont, Providence, and Wilkes-Barre, PA”. Add NYC to that list. Torche have scheduled a benefit show on May 25th show at The Charleston in Brooklyn with Tournament and Passive Aggressor! The band plays Rumsey Playfield with Coheed & Cambria the next day (5/26, tickets) and previously had 5/25 listed as a day off.

All dates, their recently-released video for “King Beef”, and the full list of items missing from their van, below…
