The Skinny: Torche have made the first new music from their eagerly awaited album Restarter (February 24th, Relapse Records) available, with the song “Minions” streaming now via YouTube – listen below. Torche’s knack for merging huge infectious melodies with down-tuned, crushing sludgy rock shines on the nearly five minute song.

Restarter will be released on CD/LP/Deluxe 2xLP/Cassette/Digital, with pre-orders beginning December 8. Two bonus tracks, “Harmonslaught” and “Rock ‘N’ Roll Mantasy,” will be included on deluxe editions. Digital pre-orders are available now via iTunes, Bandcamp with physical pre-order packages available via Relapse.
