Harmonslaught cometh!

If you caught Torche on one of their stops during their tour with Converge & Kvelertak, you were privy to hearing two new crushing tunes. Both come from the new self-released (Amnesian Records) 7" entitled Harmonslaught. Side A is the bomb note riddled "Harmonslaught" and the B side is the dark and heavy rocker, "Rock 'N Roll Mantasy".
The cover art was came from a conversation one night while hanging out in the art room with Rick and Steve about parodying some old metal covers with the Harmonster characters. For some reason, not Rick and I suggested Onslaught "Power from Hell" cover. It's simple and yet metal as fuck! I did replace the demon with one of the evil Harmonsters, so he had to have some kind of vegetable in the design. So, I replaced the demon's axe with a giant asparagus spear. The pentagram at the bottom is also formed out of mushrooms to complete the veggie theme. When I sent out the cover art, I titled Harmonslaught. I'll be damned if the song isn't called that and I couldn't be more stoked!!!
I have many more ideas that will soon be revealed for new designs for Torche in the coming months.

The 7" will be released Thursday, December 13th and a record release show is scheduled in Miami for Friday, December 14th with Holly Hunt and Post Teens.

You can order the 7" using the link to No Idea Records distro here:
