Sounds | Light The Torch, More Than Dreaming

Een bijzonder fijn nummer wist de voorbije week onze oren te strelen. More Than Dreaming van Light The Torch. Een bijzonder energieke metalcore track met opmerkelijk cleane vocalen die ook als opener zal dienen voor hun nieuwe album You Will Be the Death of Me dat uitkomt op 25 juni via Nuclear Blast.

Wanneer we dan nog eens luisteren naar de eerder vooruitgeschoven single Wilting in the Lights, dan kunnen alleen maar zeggen dat de verwachtingen nog hoger opgespannen worden.


Upheld by head-spinning seven-string virtuosity yet anchored to skyscraping melodies, LIGHT THE TORCH crafted 12 metallic anthems, including an unexpected and awesome cover of the '80s hit "Sign Your Name" by R&B singer Terence Trent D'Arby. The group shot out of the gate as a contender on their full-length debut, Revival. It bowed at #4 on the Billboard US Independent Albums Chart and at #10 on the Hard Rock Albums Chart in addition to receiving acclaim from Revolver, Outburn, and many more. "Calm Before the Storm" racked up a staggering 15.4 million Spotify streams, while "The Safety of Disbelief" remains one of SiriusXM Octane's all-time most requested songs. They also crisscrossed North America and Europe on tour with the likes of Trivium, Avatar, In Flames, Ice Nine Kills, Killswitch Engage, and August Burns Red to name a few.

For You Will Be the Death of Me, the band returned to Sparrow Sound in Glendale, California to once again work with the production team of Josh Gilbert and Joseph McQueen [Bullet for My Valentine, As I Lay Dying, Suicide Silence]. This time around, they also welcomed Whitechapel's Alex Rudinger on drums.
