LIKE TORCHES have announced the release of their new album ‘Shelter’, due out on Rude Records January 22nd.

Singer Jonathan Kärn comments: “A big part of this album was written in a country house far up north in Sweden. With no cell reception, internet or human interactions. This was a great experience for all of us as a group, to connect and strengthen our friendship to a new level. It also helped us find the shape and sound that we wanted for this next album. The vibe of the album is emotional and angry, it’s a compilation of everything that we have been through these past years. We have put everything we got into it”.

‘Shelter’ was produced and recorded by Ryan Key (Yellowcard) at Missing Man Recordings in Stockholm. Like Torches have a long time working relationship with Yellowcard’s own Ryan Key, who also produced their debut record.

Single ‘Skeletons’ is available as instant grat track with any iTunes preorder. The band will be touring the UK in November, full dates below.
