PRESS RELEASE

//

Torn was founded in 1994 by Stef and Fred. Wanting to create a new sound with influences of bands like Type O Negative, Paradise Lost, Moonspell, ... Torn played many stages and events over the 8 years they were active. Headline shows and opening for international bands like Within Temptation, Sirenia, Theatre of Tragedy, Pist’on and many festivals.

​In 2001 tragedy struck as Danny, their drummer unexpectedly passed. Torn continued to promote their "Day One" album with Bart on drums.

2005 saw the band taking a break as the members ventured on to unexplored musical reaches, where Fred & Frank went on to start "Helluray", a female fronted power rock band; and Stef exploring the fringe of garage/surf rock with the "Famous Fantastix"

2011 Plans for a reunion were halted as their original bassist, Dave, tragically perished in a car crash.

In 2019, Torn planned a brief reunion at the behest of Danny's children, and subsequently found former passion for the bands' music rekindled. New music was written, a studio album in the makes, shows booked,…

When in 2020 the Covid pandemic reared it's ugly head. Studio plans became home recording plans, shows postponed, but the passion remained, resulting in "The Lost Tapes". An EP with re-recorded early material, as well as new music. An updated logo, a refreshing of the name to Torn AD, and fully prepared to take on 2021.

The 5-song EP “The Lost Tapes” will be released 20th of March 2021 together with the first single and video for the new track: “Comment Section Hivemind”.   The full CD will be ready by the time we can and will hit the stage summer 2021.  We will see you on tour, until then stay …
