Torche Plan To Call It Quits Following The Departure Of Steve Brooks

Torche’s Steve Brooks has revealed that the band will be calling it quits following their tour with Meshuggah, Converge, and In Flames. This news comes after the vocalist/guitarist previously said that he was planning to exit the group after the aforementioned trek.

Brooks said the following about the band’s demise in a past Instagram comment that recently resurfaced:

“True. We’re done. Only plan on reissuing out of print records some day.”

He also added the following in a separate comment:

“I had adventures in this band I wouldn’t have experienced otherwise and made many friends through touring. At this point, I live in rural Oregon Coast and everyone else is in Miami. It’s a mission travelling across country to be crammed in a van for a month, worrying about money to cover all these expenses, possible theft, health/safety and depending on others to take care of our responsibilities at home is too much. The only enjoyable moments for me is onstage (30-80 minutes.) Come see us, if you can.”

Despite the impending breakup, the band recently released a new song tilted “It Never Began.”
