Torche – the four-pronged Floridian Riff Colossus that has steamrolled its way across the international underground – is led by vocalist/guitarist Steve Brooks (formerly of doom dropouts Floor) and features the myriad talents of drummer Rick Smith, bassist Jonathan Nuñez and guitarist Juan Montoya. They unfurled their self-titled debut in 2005 via Richmond, Virginia’s Robotic Empire. The glorious half-hour of blissed-out power-grooves, triumphant vocal harmonies and cosmic resonance within was variously hailed as “stoner pop,” “thunder rock,” and “doom pop.” They swiftly set out to slay, punish & conquer. In October, 2007, Torche traveled to Salem, Massachusetts (a.k.a. Witch City) to record their sophomore full-length with Converge guitarist/super-producer Kurt Ballou at God City Studios. So: Citizens of Miami, rejoice. Music fans, exult. Torche are about to rule your stereo and your face all over again. Doors at 8 PM / Show at 9 PM / Ages 18+ / Tickets advance, day of show + fees
