TORCHE packed Silver Lake’s tiny Vacation Vinyl store on Tuesday and filled the room with massive volume. The now three-piece band celebrated the release of their new album, Songs for Singles, by performing the heavy, down-tuned yet surprisingly (and pleseantly) melodic new material in its entirety.
It was an early show that found PELICAN‘s Larry Herweg sneak in towards the end of the set and, with the help of others, convince the band to play a few more songs.
To top things off, the heavy metal food truck, Grill ’em All Truck, (which has recently been capturing a lot of buzz) was parked outside the store serving up some quality burgers with metal a’blaring from their stereo.
Anyways, a sweet video of (most of) the TORCHE in-store peformance was captured by user sonsolsylo. Watch it below:

On Sunday, August 8th, a host of loud, riff-heavy bands will descend upon Los Angeles for The Power of the Riff Festival. Curated by Greg Anderson (Southern Lord) and Sam James Velde (NIGHT HORSE), The Power of the Riff Festival was assembled with the intent to blur the lines between Metal, Hardcore, Punk and Rock music.
