Torche Announce Summer Co-Headlining Tour with Melt-Banana

Torche has confirmed a co-headline tour with Japan’s Melt-Banana, with the dates kicking off on July 2 at Dante’s in Portland, Ore.

Torche recently released Restarter, the band’s debut for Relapse Records, and their best selling album to date, with the ten-song collection landing on multiple Billboard charts and Pitchfork calling the set “their most compelling record since Meandrathal” and Entertainment Weekly dubbing the band “loud rock’s most adroit genre-benders.”

Torche is currently in the midst of a North American tour, playing Skully’s Music Diner in Columbus, Ohio this evening.

Tickets for the Torche/Melt-Banana tour are on sale this Thursday, March 19.
