Light The Torch Drop Off Fall Tour With GWAR After Being “Unable To Find An Affordable Reliable Vehicle To Tour In”

Light The Torch have dropped off their upcoming tour with GWAR, Nekrogoblikon, and Crobot. The band had to sit out the trek after being “unable to find an affordable reliable vehicle to tour in.”

Light The Torch issued the following statement:

“It’s with great disappointment that we must announce we are pulling off the upcoming fall GWAR tour as well as the one Light The Torch headline show on Sep-17 in Columbus, OH. Since confirming the GWAR tour 2 months ago, we’ve been unable to find an affordable reliable vehicle to tour in, and with the tour starting in just a week we’re at the point where we can’t keep everyone in limbo. It’s such a unique time for touring bands right now with touring essentials in such high demand and low supply, something we’re experiencing first hand.

We sincerely apologize to the GWAR camp that we couldn’t find a way to make this happen. They have been nothing but accommodating and we know it would’ve been an amazing tour for us to do. We’re truly heartbroken and wish we had better news.

We encourage you all to still check out the tour when it comes to your town, featuring GWAR, Nekrogoblikon and Crobot.

Thanks to all of our fans for your understanding and continued support. We miss being out there and look forward to seeing you all again soon. Until then, stay safe and be well. Love LTT.”

Blöthar The Berserker commented:

“Long ago, GWAR broke the frame of what a rock concert can be. We’ve pushed the envelope of live performance for decades, but this time around, we wanted to do something different. This is the first GWAR show conceived to go along with a graphic novel and an album, all working together as one massive hunk of hot steaming shock rock performance ART!

A can’t-miss cavalcade of chaos, a trash culture trilogy, a shocking extravaganza that will leave you utterly spent, soaking wet, and bawling uncontrollably. We’ve got the coolest storyline, unbelievable new characters, more blood, gore, and gags than ever before. Come, unload your worries, human scum, and let GWAR transport you to the Duoverse of absurdity just in time for the NEW DARK AGE!”

Crobot Premiere “Set You Free” Video

Crobot have premiered a new video for their new song “Set You Free.” This track is from the band’s new album “Feel This,” which will be released on June 3. Frontman Brandon Yeagley commented:

“There’s a few things that you have to do when you find yourself deep in the heart of Texas shooting a music video – either something’s getting blown up or set on fire. We decided the latter for the filming of ‘Set You Free.’ It’s always a pleasure working with the crew of MyGoodEye and this one is literally on fire. With the help of our talented friend, Chelsee Jernigan (Fear of the Walking Dead, What About Molly?) we find ourselves lost in the woods with only the light of our flashlights and a few burning things…what things you ask? Well, what sort of things would you expect us to burn, Beardos?“

Crobot have premiered a new video for their new song “Better Times.” This track is from the band’s new album “Feel This,” which will be released on June 3.

Frontman Brandon Yeagley commented:

“No need to search any further, #Beardos! Better Times are here to stay. You know we wouldn’t have it any other way. Buckle up and strap it down because Crobot is comin’ back to town. And with smiles on our faces, we’ve got all the right grooves that hit in all the right places. So, grab your junk – food that is – and tune into this special sneak preview of the studio, kids! See you out there this spring for some ass shakin, ear smackin’ thangs! Ca-caaaaawwwww!”

He also added the following about the new album:

“This is the record we’ve been wanting to do ever since we started. We’ve always thought of ourselves as a live act. When Jay Ruston described his process of recording, we were beyond excited about getting in and getting our hands dirty. It involved performing live as a unit and finishing all instruments on a song before moving on to the next. We recorded 16 songs in 21 days, which is a feat in itself.”

“Through constant struggles, we learn more what it’s like to be human. Our shortcomings and strengths alike make us a unique species. Feel This very well may point to our biggest strength of all, our ability to feel emotion (for better or worse).”

01. “Electrified”
02. “Dizzy”
03. “Set You Free”
04. “Better Times”
05. “Golden”
06. “Without Wings”
07. “Livin’ On The Streets”
08. “Into the Fire”
09. “Dance With The Dead”
10. “Holy Ghost”
11. “Never Break Me”
12. “Staring Straight Into The Sun”
