Torche Offshoot Tilts Announce Sophomore Album

Torche Offshoot Tilts Announce Sophomore Album
With Steve Brooks putting the focus back onto Floor earlier this year via reunion disc Oblation, it only makes sense that his Torche bandmate Andrew Elstner would likewise rep his other project, Tilts. Three years after the St. Louis stoner pop outfit issued their self-titled debut, they have announced they're back with a sophomore effort, Cuatro Hombres.

Like that first record, the group's new platter was funded via a successful Kickstarter campaign, with the album due to be released June 24 through Robotic Empire.

A press release notes that drummer Ken McCray recorded the LP at Marmadook Studios, with engineer Ian Whalen (Rah Brahs, Tombs, Lamb of God) handling mixing duties and James Plotkin (Isis, Cave In, Thou) having mastered the release for vinyl and digital editions. The artwork, which you can see up above, was produced by Tom Huck, who had also delivered the art for Tilts.

A full tracklisting has not been unveiled, but the album includes cuts called "Thomas Jefferson II," "Köbra Kommandür" and "Titanium Falcon." You can check out an unmastered version of the latter, a detuned pounder akin to Torche or Queens of the Stone Age, down below.
