The Torche “Annihilation Affair” Is Simply Amazing!

If you like animated videos, or animation for that matter, against a dystopian backdrop, then you have to see the new Phil Mucci-directed video from Torche. Telling the story of our civilization’s destruction and fall, only to see an AI uprising, “Annhilation Affair” makes sure that even what we create is destined to make the same mistakes we did.

And if you like the sound of a Helmet-meets-Tool sound, then Torche’s Restarter is mandatory listening, which you can stream in its entirety here.

Torche is in the final week of a North American tour and will head overseas on May 2nd, for a month of European dates before returning to the U.S. for a co-headline run with Melt-Banana.
