Committed To The Ground
12 May 2014
Boasting a volatile brew of metallic, downbeat punk and hardcore, Torch Runner released their initial nine-track Locust Swarm EP at the beginning of 2010 which tore into the underground scene, hooking fans of bands like Early Graves, Nails, Enabler, Dead In The Dirt and similar acts. A split EP with Young And In The Way dropped in mid-2011, followed one year later by their debut album, Committed To The Ground, the brutalising, morose crust attributes of the band showing through more with each new release.
Southern Lord are releasing a CD version of their debut album ‘Committed To The Ground’ that was previously only available on vinyl. There will be another LP version released on the label in June also.
Torch Runner is are finalising their newest works, which have now been recorded at Legitimate Business in Greensboro, North Carolina with Kris Hilbert at the control board. Upon completion, it will be adorned with original art by Fernando Pena at No Prophet Dead Press.
Torch Runner’s brand new full length will emerge in the Autumn, and tour plans for 2014 will be released in the coming weeks.
