Torche drummer Rick Smith is the latest metal drummer to sit in with the 8G Band on Late Night With Seth Meyers. Smith will get behind the kit from September 13 to 15, and then will hit the road with Meshuggah, Converge, and In Flames one day later.
Torche‘s coming tour will also be their final one with founding vocalist and guitarist Steve Brooks, who said he’ll leave the band after things wrap up. “We’re a few months away from the last tour I’m doing with Torche,” said Brooks this May. “We’ve been so very lucky and went far beyond what I imagined. I just don’t have it in me to keep this going living on opposite sides of the country. Much love to my band members and everyone that supported us these 18 years! See y’all this Sept/Oct.”
