The winds of change most definitely fanned the flame for LIGHT THE TORCH. On their 2018 full-length debut »Revival«[Nuclear Blast], the Los Angeles, CA trio—Howard Jones[vocals], Francesco Artusato[guitar], and Ryan Wombacher[bass]—drew from five years together as DEVIL YOU KNOWonly to forge a wholly distinct path. Amidst myriad struggles, they returned from the brink under a new banner.

The musicians quietly struck the match for LIGHT THE TORCHduring 2017. Without so much as telling either the label or management, they wrote the 12 anthems comprising »Revival«and recorded them in Los Angeles with the help of WOVENWAR and AS I LAY DYINGbassist and producer Josh Gilbert[BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE, SUICIDE SILENCE] behind the board. Joined by EXTINCTION A.D.drummer Mike “Scuzz” Sciularabehind the kit, the guys put their heads down and really focused on making an album as a whole, placing more emphasis on the songs flowing cohesively from one to the next.

As far as“where they’ve been”goes, LIGHT THE TORCHmaintains one of the most esteemed pedigrees in modern heavy music. From Howard’s decade at the helm of GRAMMY®Award-nominated and gold-selling titans KILLSWITCH ENGAGEand Francesco’s much-lauded stint in ALL SHALL PERISHand status as a shred virtuoso to Ryan’s tenure in BLEEDING THROUGH, there’s no shortage of experience. Still, »Revival«marks an important moment for all three men.

“It was a long road to get here,”reveals the singer. “We reworked everything. Once we started this, things snowballed. It was like, ‘Wow, we can breathe again.’ »Revival«felt like the appropriate name.”

Ultimately,LIGHT THE TORCHignites the future for not only its members but metal at large.
