    Torche will mark their 15th year as a band with a new record, Admission. Its first single, “Slide,” is out now.

    The gritty yet accessible new track was written by new Torche member, bassist Eric Hernandez. “‘Slide’ is one of the first songs Eric came to the table with, fully realized and arranged,” drummer Rick Smith explained in a statement, as reported by Consequence of Sound. “Eric is a total beast of a songwriter. I suggested he use the first three Gary Numan records as inspiration and he came back at us with some melodically sound material that nailed the Torche vibe.”

    Admission, which was produced by Torche guitarist Jon Nuñez, will drop July 12 via Relapse Records. Check out “Slide” here:
