Biography

Torchlight Red started during 2004, in the Saint Peters, Missouri, a Midwestern town, with drummer Sam Reynolds and guitarist Samuel Naumann. Originally they were called “The Overcoats.” Cory Hofmiester was also a part of the band. The three piece had one night of practice, making songs with titles that include, “Air Conditioning” and “Saint Peters.” It was essentially a weak attempt at suburban rap to a pre-made song on a small keyboard. They filmed themselves playing “Saint Peters.” Reynolds and Naumann sang while Cory taped a practice drum pad to his stomach. Reynold’s brother, Justin, was also featured playing a melody in the song on the small keyboard.

The Sams would occasionally have a musical practice. They kicked Cory out after he had ditched practice to play basketball at another friend’s house. During the Sams’ 7th grade school year, they would have an obsession with Weezer.

In the late summer of 2005, Sam Reynolds was having an instant message conversation with new guitarist Eric Hudson. He lived down the street from Reynolds and had known the two since elementary school. They had decided to start a band. Samuel Naumann was asked to join at the same time on instant message. “The Green Boot Choir,” was formed. The new group usually practiced in Eric’s basement. They decorated the basement with all kinds of early teen expression. In the beginning of their 8th grade 2005-2006 school year, the band began to practice regularly. They changed the name back to, “The Overcoats.” They created two songs and had a “Consert” in Eric’s backyard. There were about 15 people at the show.
