TORCHE share Chicago Music Exchange session; On tour in Europe in March and April

Torche Band

Miami heavy rockers TORCHE share their Chicago Music Exchange (CME) session. The performance, recorded during their headlining Fall tour in 2019, features the title track off their new album Admission, alongside lead single “Slide”“On the Wire” and the crushing “Infierno”. TORCHE are streaming the CME session alongside an exclusive interview with guitarist Jonathan Nuñez here.

In addition to the CME session, TORCHE have revealed a new signature Admission Tetra-Fet Pedal. The Tetra-Fet is part of the exclusive line from Nuñez Amps, the amp and pedal company founded by TORCHE guitarist Jonathan Nuñez. The guitar pedal is available now in a bundle with a limited edition autographed LP of Admission here

TORCHE guitarist Jonathan Nuñez comments:

“The Tetra-Fet Drive was an essential sonic swiss army knife on Admission! From rhythm guitar tracking, to various guitar leads and guitar solos, as well as providing a thick saturated realism on the drum tracks; the Tetra-Fet was the key in bringing out the natural sound of our instruments along with the tones and dynamics we heard in our heads.” 

Nuñez Amps was “partially inspired by his quest to create a distinct guitar sound in Torche as he had on bass, Nuñez and his bandmates actually road-tested the equipment during the development phase before bringing it into the studio to record Admission. It was an ambitious undertaking, but one fitting for a band whose DIY mentality extends into doing everything from record production to album art on their own.” (

TORCHE once again tour in support of their latest album, Admission. Their first new album in more than 4 years,Admission “retains the sludgy ferocity of their best work while broadening their sound to include elements of shoegaze and dream pop” (Pitchfork). Upon release, Admissionawarded the critically acclaimed band significant praise, hailed as “kick(ing) all kinds of ass” (Stereogum), as the band “broadened their palette into the kinds of progressions you might expect to hear on records as far afield as synth pop or classic rock, punk records or riff-driven metal bangers.” (Consequence of Sound). Admissionis streaming here
