Back home!!

Just got back from our US East Coast run with Harvey Milk and the Scion metal show w/ Big Business. Thanks to everyone who came out to the shows, it was definitely our best tour in the US yet. Starting next month we'll be writing new songs for our upcoming full length on HydraHead. We should be in the studio winter 2009.

In the meantime no tours are planned other than a few one off shows. Dates are listed on the myspace page as well as here on the blog. Split with Boris should be out sometime in October/September. Next show for us is September 22nd in Richmond, VA (Best Friends Day).

We just returned from a 3 week festival tour of Europe w/ Kylesa. Played shows along the way with Shitstorm, Coalesce, Voivod, Isis, Mono, Mogwai, Monotonix, Mastodon, Down and a ton of other great bands. We had a blast.

We have an upcoming new split with Boris titled "Chapter Ahead Being Fake." The split will be released by Daymare on CD, by Hydra Head on 10" vinyl, and by RCP Tapes on limited cassette. Release date is August 19th, 2009.

On Saturday, our co-headlining U.S./Canada tour with Harvey Milk begins in Miami. Hydra Head Champions Of Sound Tour 2009. You can find more info and dates on our myspace page. We will have the last remaining copies from the 2nd pressing of the "Meanderthal Demos" on tape, as well as the last remaining copies of the "Meanderthal" LP. Don't expect a repressing of the LP anytime soon. After the Harvey Milk tour we'll be flying to Los Angeles to play a free show with Big Business, then we do Best Friends Day in Richmond, VA a couple weeks later.

Come September, we'll be writing a lot and not playing many shows. In October we'll be doin' the Fest 8 in Gainesville (Torche's first time back since 2004).

More to come soon! See yall on the road!
