Torches : T O R C H E S are a rock outfit that have been hypnotizing and swooning the Los Angeles scene. Their music has been aired on KROQ, KCRW, KPFK, KXLU and many stations all across the U.S. They have also been featured in BBC, LA Times, RCRD LBL, Buzz Bands LA etc. Torches have played mostly every nook and cranny in packed L.A. venues such as The Satellite, The Echo, The Bootleg Theater, The Smell. Th...ey’ve toured throughout California and have played at SXSW. Torches have been fortunate enough to work with Local Natives' producer, Raymond Richards, David Newton (The Soft Pack, The Henry Clay People, Happy Hollows) and Mark Chalecki who has mastered records for some of today's most intriguing artists (Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Bright Eyes, Silversun Pickups, Liars, Sunn O))), Brian Jonestown Massacre). This trio is excited to put out records, pet as many animals as humanly possible, see the world, meet weird looking people, share experiences and much more.
The Hectors: The Hectors write and perform songs about geeks (“Cold Star”), thugs (“Carol and Sanford”), slackers (“Proof of Sale”) and dreamers (“I Drove All the Way from Bridgeport to Make it With You”). The Hectors self-produced and recorded their recently-released 5-song EP, “Sometimes They Collide”, then called upon veteran producer Rick Parker (Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Dandy Warhols, Brian Jonestown Massacre) to mix, and masterful engineer Mark Chalecki (Silversun Pickups, Earlimart, Great Northern) to master.
