Rude Records is delighted to announce the signing of Swedish punk rockers Like Torches and the release of a new studio album early 2016.
The band revealed a first taste of what's to come in the form of the anthemic video for "Skeletons", which you can watch below.
The band has a long-time working relationship with Yellowcard's Ryan Key, who has produced both the debut and forthcoming record. Impressively, the debut single 'Missing It All' peaked at number 1 in the alternative iTunes chart in Scandinavia.
Lead singer Jonathan Kärn comments: "We are absolutely thrilled to announce our signing with Rude Records and to join their family of amazing bands! We're really proud of our new album, and we're so excited to have found such a great label to partner with to allow as many people as possible to hear it. We can't wait to hit the road and play all these new songs!"

Nov 12 - Glasgow, Garage (Attic)
Nov 13 - Manchester, Soundcontrol
