With anticipation for the release of Like Torches’ new album “Loves And Losses” continuing to grow, today the Swedish outfit release the digital single ‘Get A Life,’ an emotionally and harmonically gripping track ahead of the album’s release on November 1st.
Earlier this year the band announced details behind “Loves And Losses,” and debuted the first video from the album, ‘The Guilt Of Surviving.’ Grabbing tour-mate and Yellowcard frontman Ryan Key to handle production duties, these five passionate musicians have worked diligently across two continents over the last several years to create a fresh, stellar rock album for the current times. “Loves And Losses” will be available everywhere digitally on November 1st.
Yellowcard vocalist Ryan Key took lead as producer as the Swedish outfit packed up and took to the streets of Nashville to create Loves And Losses. Key interjects, “It’s hard to explain the excitement hearing your work completed like this, so proud of these dudes and these songs.
” On the recording of the band’s first material in over two years, Karn explains, “We wanted to combat our normal surroundings, and the culture of Nashville helped us be more creative and filled us with so much inspiration so we could find our perfect sound. We literally explored new territories and that allowed us to feel the highs and lows of being in a band, hence the name Loves And Losses.”
Rounded out by vocalist Jonathan Karn, guitarist Erik Thyr, bassist Zakarias Faleij and drummer Jimmy Brunkvist, Like Torches have toured with such artists as Hit The Lights, Memphis May Fire, Taking Back Sunday, Yellowcard and many others across Europe, Japan, the United States and Australia. Karn promises fans, “To everyone that has supported us through this journey: We took our time on this one. We wanted to make it right. And we did. The record came out sounding just the way we hoped and dreamed it would. Thank you so much for the patience and see you on the road soon!”
