The story of TØRSÖ starts on the PUNCH tour with Italy’s HOLY in 2013. PUNCH guitarist Keith and HOLY drummer Giacomo put together a transcontinental powerhouse adding bassist Jasmine of NEO CONS and EVERYBODY ROW (among many others) and vocalist Ethan of RITUAL CONTROL. After three releases that were both self-released and on renowned punk labels like Sorry State Records, Agipunk and Adagio830, Giacomo moved to the United States and TØRSÖ hit some crucial hardcore festivals like Sound And Fury in Los Angeles, Damaged City Fest in D.C. and Not Dead Yet in Toronto as well as tours of the coasts with AMERICAN NIGHTMARE and FIREBURN. TØRSÖ is armed with a powerful punk and hardcore sound with influences as geographically diverse as its members. One can hear the D-beating drums of DISCHARGE, the all-out speed attack of Swedish crust legends TOTALITÄR, and the stomping breaks of late-’80s N.Y.H.C. Lyrically, TØRSÖ does not rely on any of the hardcore clichés or spew overly simplistic lyrics that carry no real meaning. Instead, the band tackles issues of veganism, politics, mental health, displacement, and feminism at a time when the world needs it the most.
