Rigs of Dad Prodcast

Mar 29, 2021

Steve Brooks is helping me celebrate the 50th episode with his own birthday!!

Torche is a band that is in constant rotation in my house, in the car, at the gym... everywhere.  There is no band that fits every possible mood as much as Torche.  They are one of the heaviest bands, one of the happiest bands, one of the catchiest bands, one of the hardest working bands... they are just a band for everyone.

Thrilled to have had the opportunity to talk tone with one of the most important figures in that world since the word itself was ever applied.  We talk gear, tour, influences, volume, and much more.

Please be sure to check out Torche wherever you listen to music, and follow them wherever you consume your social media.

If you want to hear more of this conversation, the extended version is available to patrons on all tiers at the Rigs of Dad Patreon page. Gear deep dives, Eric Stoltz trivia, line up changes, weed and other crucial items on tour, and more.  You can even take some deep dives with more of my guests, get some Patreon exclusive swag, and more by checking out the Rigs of Dad Patreon page at OR just download the Patreon ap, search for Rigs of Dad, and you can support creators like me and so many more in the process!
