About the Torche / Part Chimp Split EP:

Euphoric rockers Part Chimp return to the US for the last time this fall with their final recordings in hand, appearing on a split release and east coast tour supporting US noise merchants Torche.

Having supported their previous studio albums - "Thriller" (2009), "Chart Pimp" (2003) and "I Am Come" (2005) - with extensive, worldwide touring through Japan, North America and Europe, their new release is guaranteed to satisfy their die-hard following and curious first-timers alike.

Did we mention that this is the final time that Yanks can see these Brits? Well, it is.

Signed to Mogwai’s Rock Action label ten years ago, the Camberwell crew have recruited bassist Joe Mclaughlin (Kling Klang, The Left Hand, Plectrum) to add even more texture to their dense, pervading noise that doesn’t betray their roots as a traditional rock band. Fans of everyone from Black Sabbath and MC5 to TAD, Sonic Youth, The Melvins and Harvey Milk stand to be impressed by the band's suffocating but liberating vibe that sounds brain-shakingly loud regardless where the volume dial is turned on your stereo.

Imagine a primordial swamp of pre-grunge British noise / rock, when Britain pre-empted grunge... believe it, it is true... flannel shirts? Pah... we’re talking skinny faded black jeans with knees worn out, grubby t-shirts with crap sloganeering, and knackered shitkicking boots...

A band with a definite history, Part Chimp were formed following the dissolution of cult underground rockers Ligament by vocalist and guitarist Tim Cedar and drummer John Hamilton adding Iain Hinchliffe, purloined from legendary jock noise outfit Sawyer. Since their inception in 2000, the Chimp have built up a reputation as a formidable live act, blowing audiences away with a mix of sonic belligerence and unashamed rock ‘n’ roll showmanship.

Miami's sludge-pop heroes Torche are back following their latest "Songs For Singles" release and co-headlining US tour w/ Big Business, to bring their fans three new covers of legendary indie-rock icons Guided By Voices. Limited to 500 total copies pressed, the Part Chimp / Torche split 12" is definitely a rare treasure to beholden.
