T O R C H E S are a rock outfit that have been hypnotizing and swooning the Los Angeles scene. Singer/guitarist Azad Cheikosman and bassist, Bridgette Moody formed this band during what was a relationship. Azad and drummer, Eric Fabbro had been bashing away at their instruments in a hot and sweaty garage for about 4-5 years before she came in to lay down the root. The band previously consisted of 5 members, but went down to a more cohesive number of 3. Bridgette learned how to play bass the same week that the band was set to play a show back in 2010.
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, Filter Magazine, RCRD LBL, Buzz Bands LA etc. Torches have shared the stage with bands such as Sea Wolf, Group Love, Electric Guest, Cults and other great acts. The band has played mostly every nook and cranny in packed L.A. venues such as The Troubadour, The Satellite, The Echo, and more. They've toured throughout the country 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.
