Light The Torch have revealed their second single, “More Than Dreaming” from their upcoming album, You Will Be the Death of Me available everywhere on June 25 via Nuclear Blast. The band worked with Josh Gilbert and Joseph McQueen (Bullet for My Valentine, As I Lay Dying, Suicide Silence) at Sparrow Sound in Glendale, California. Given the band’s drummer situation, Whitechapel’s Alex Rudinger filled in behind the kit. The band also shared a guitar playthrough of their first single, “Wilting in the Light” here.
Frontman Howard Jones commented on the single.
“I love starting the album with ‘More Than Dreaming. It’s got great energy and bounce to it — exactly what you want as an opener. We are looking forward to playing this live. The wait is almost over!”
A 3D visualizer has accompanied the new track using the album artwork, both created by guitarist Francesco Artusato. The guitarist shared his headspace while creating the artwork.
“The idea for this artwork started developing in my head right after we were done with the first session of pre-production. I started seeing certain colors and this style in my head. To me, the music on this record in fact sounds like ‘those colors.’ The concept is pretty simple: You can see a torch in the middle and three flames coming out of it. The three flames represent the three of us. The addition of neons and fog was inspired by John Carpenter’s ’80’s movies.”
“Having all the artwork created in 3-D, I was able to place it in a CG environment, start animating some of the elements, and create some sort of story. I think in this case it works well with the ‘dream-like’ vibe of these visuals. Artwork and visual creativity have been a big part of my growth as an artist for the past few years and I love to be able to combine music and visuals in one project. It made this album even more special to me.”
