LIGHT THE TORCH announce new album 'You Will Be The Death Of Me' + share lead single

Accompanied by a hard-hitting offering that will have you learning the chorus in no time.


With guitarist Francesco Artusato's artistic talents at the forefront, LIGHT THE TORCH ready the arrival of their next album, You Will Be The Death Of Me. Arriving on June 25th via Nuclear Blast Records, the band's newly announced full-length comes gun blazing with frontman Howard Jones (ex-Killswitch Engage) delivering yet another display of soaring vocals, the likes of which come well equipped by electrifying performances by Artusato, Ryan Wombacher (bass), and guest drummer Alex Rudinger (Whitechapel) respectfully. With lead single Wilting The Light paving the path in glorious fashion, LIGHT THE TORCH set expectations high for a composition that is sure to meet, if not exceed, those expectations.

Howard Jones comments:

"You Will Be the Death of Me has been a journey — even without the pandemic. This album has been emotional and rewarding in every way, and we couldn't be more excited to finally release it. Maybe there was a bit of desperation writing and recording these songs."

"Going through personal turmoil and watching Francesco deal with injuries, we knew this could change things drastically for us. The album was a welcome distraction, and we dumped every emotion we had into YWBTDOM. To watch Fran heal and become an even more complete artist in front of my eyes has been amazing to watch. Everything we went through individually and together with this album drew Fran, Ryan, and I together. I couldn't be more proud of this album knowing I made it with my family."

Francesco Artusato adds:

"This record is special to me in a different way. From writing the music during one of the toughest times of my life while dealing with a bad injury due to a car accident to being obsessively involved with every aspect of its production, recording, and creating the artwork. It's hard to describe how I feel, and to finally see this record getting ready to be released."
