Los Angeles’ own Torches are proudly spreading the word about their debut album Heads Full Of Rust to the masses. Gaining recognition from local radio stations, KROQ and KCRW as well as Buzz Bands LA and even BBC, this budding trio aren’t just confident in themselves but they’ve got the talents of engineer David Newton (The Henry Clay People, Happy Hollows) behind them too!

“I Want Something” walks the fine line between chugging percussion and delicate guitar rhythms plus hypnotic vocals courtesy of singer, Azad Cheikosman.

Catch Torches at the Make Music Pasadena Festival on Saturday, June 16. They’ll be playing at the Town Pub Stage at 7:15PM! They’ve also got a show at The Bootleg Theater on June 22.
