Torche has shared their recent BBC Radio 1 Maida Vale Session for fans to enjoy. The session, recorded earlier this month while on their Spring European tour, originally aired Thursday, March 19, before the band was forced to cancel their headlining dates and further tour dates with Russian Circles due to the current Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic. The performance features from their 2019 full-length Admission, out now via Relapse Records. Jam it out now!


Torche comments:

Having the privilege of doing a BBC session could not have come at a better time. The experience at Maida Vale is always fun and inspiring, but with the way things are going in the world at the moment, we are even more grateful for opportunities like these. In the midst of the tour cancellation we faced earlier this month, this session is something very special to come out of a trying time.”

Torche previously released their Part Time Punks session. Originally recorded in the Fall of 2019, the Part Time Punks session on KXLU 88.9 FM in Los Angeles is streaming now at a “pay what you want” model via the official Torche bandcamp page.

Regarding the session, the band comments, “Like many other musicians we are now faced with staggering losses to try and recoup. We are putting all the proceeds from the sales of this session, available exclusively here on Bandcamp, toward the tour expenses and losses we need to cover and replace. You can purchase this at any price point you see fit, any and all support helps and we’re so grateful for everyone who buys this.”
