Torche Release Epic, Wild Video For “Annihilation Affair”

Published

on

Torche have released their official video for “Annihilation Affair” and it’s fucking insane! Directed by BD fave Phil Mucci (High On Fire, Opeth, Huntress), the video shows an apocalyptic vision of the future where robots are programmed to wage war. However, a good old fashioned porno mag and a gorgeous woman in a cryotube – looking suspiciously like Leeloo from The Fifth Element – are all it takes for everything to descend into utter chaos once again. For some reason, I’m sensing there are a lot of influences and inspirations from the Heavy Metal films.

Torche singer/guitar player Steven Brooks comments:

Phil Mucci’s creation and destruction is so beautiful. Everything we hoped for and more!

“Annihilation Affair” comes from the band’s latest album Restarter, which you can snag via iTunes.
