Nach fünf Jahren als DEVIL YOU KNOW schlägt die Band einen anderen Weg ein und erfindet sich auf dem neuen Album "Revival" neu.
Zusammen mit EXTINCTION A.D.-Drummer Mike "Scuzz" Sciulara agiert die Band nun unter dem Namen LIGHT THE TORCH und wird ihr schon erwähntes Debütalbum am 30. März via Nuclear Blast veröffentlichen.
"2016 was a really tough year for us as a band, both personally and professionally," erklärt Sänger Jones. "While going through some lineup changes, we were also battling some issues with the use of our band name. At the same time, I was trying to deal with the loss of my oldest brother, which really hit me hard. During that time, we just bonded like never before. We all meshed because we faced war together. We survived. At the end, we realized we were a real band and decided to make an album representing that resilience. Honestly, we came out of the dark. The name literally signifies what we went through."
"It was time for a change," so der Sänger weiter. "It was time for us to try and stretch our wings. We were really going for songs. The structuring made more sense. I was focused on melody and harmony. I really cut loose. All in all, it was the perfect storm. We had so much fun making this, because there were really no restrictions other than creating a heavy and catchy body of work."

Mit "Die Alone" gibt es auch schon die erste Single aus dem Werk, dessen Artwork von Gitarrist Francesco Artusato geschaffen wurde, zu bestaunen:
"'Die Alone' is basically a note I had written to myself a couple years ago, and it seemed to really fit the music," so Frontmann Howard Jones. "We are more than excited to release our album »Revival«, and we all feel it's been worth every bit of the struggle to get it done. See you all soon on the road."
