Floridian stoner metal overlords Torche are set to make a long-awaited live return to Orlando — where the band have tread the boards many times over the past few years — this summer and they're going to play a very different venue than they have in the past. A gallery space, in fact!

The band just announced a July 12 release date for new album Admission  on Relapse Records, a clutch of touring dates that extends from May  through November, and debuted a teaser single "Slide."

Torche truck into the Henao Contemporary Center on Friday, Aug. 9, at 8 p.m. Tickets can be purchased here.
