Hydra Head Records | April 8, 2008

Call it the band's second official full-length. Call it the latest and greatest bomb-string stoner pop/thunder rock/doom pop classic from Torche mastermind Steve Brooks and his fellow hook heros. Call it the sweetest catchiest, hugest riff colossus since Sky Valley. Shit, call it "Album Of The Year" if you want. That's what we're going to with, anyway. - Hydra Head Records
