Light The Torch is back with a brand new album called You Will Be The Death Of Me due out on June 25. The band is now streaming a new single "Wilting In The Light", which of course features some seriously killer Howard Jones chorus hooks. Dude is just too good.
"You Will Be the Death of Me has been a journey — even without the pandemic," said Jones. "This album has been emotional and rewarding in every way, and we couldn't be more excited to finally release it. Maybe there was a bit of desperation writing and recording these songs."
"Going through personal turmoil and watching Francesco deal with injuries, we knew this could change things drastically for us. The album was a welcome distraction, and we dumped every emotion we had into YWBTDOM. To watch Fran heal and become an even more complete artist in front of my eyes has been amazing to watch. Everything we went through individually and together with this album drew Fran, Ryan, and I together. I couldn't be more proud of this album knowing I made it with my family."
"This record is special to me in a different way," added guitarist Francesco Artusato. "From writing the music during one of the toughest times of my life while dealing with a bad injury due to a car accident to being obsessively involved with every aspect of its production, recording, and creating the artwork. It's hard to describe how I feel, and to finally see this record getting ready to be released."
You Will Be The Death Of Me was recorded with Josh Gilbert and Joseph McQueen (Bullet for My Valentine, Suicide Silence) and features Whitechapel's Alex Rudinger on drums. Pre-orders are available here.
