TorcheMiami's own Torche has announced plans for "Meanderthal", their second LP and third overall release on the heels of the mighty "In Return" EP. Aaron Turner's Hydra Head will release "Meanderthal" on April 8th, which (like almost everything nowadays) will be produced by Kurt Ballou (Converge) at GodCity in Salem, MA.
