Torche – “Keep Up”

Torche’s last full-length outing, 2012’s Harmonicraft, was an absolute beast, but since then, they’ve stepped up their game yet another level on 7-inch one-offs like the fucking ridiculous “Harmonslaught” and now “Keep Up.” The new track is Torche at their stoner-metal smoothest: all beach grooves and waxed-to-a-shine guitars. The single is being released via Volcom Vinyl Club in July. But you can spin the A-side here, now. Tour dates below, too.
