BAD TOUCH announced today that they have signed a worldwide album contract with Marshall Records.
Their new album titled “Shake A Leg” will be released Friday 5th October 2018.
The band will support the release with their “Shake A Leg” 18-date UK headline tour that starts on Wednesday 14th October at Newcastle University Union [dates below.]
Planet Rock will start a 48-hour ticket pre-sale for the tour on Wednesday 20th June via www.planetrocktickets.co.uk.
Tickets will then go on sale to the general public on Friday 22nd June from www.badtouchrocks.co.uk/gigs-tours and see-tickets.
The band’s highly anticipated third album was recorded in their home county of Norfolk at Orange Tree Studios. Engineered, produced and mixed by Andy Hodgson.
The new album follows the critically acclaimed 2016 release of “Truth Be Told” which featured the rock radio hit “99%” [shared below] that recalled Bad Company and early Whitesnake. RAW RAMP described it as: “Hirsute denim rock with a smattering of blues…”
“Shake A Leg” adopts a more personal and ambitious approach in the composition and production of songs. The band worked spontaneously within the studio setting, resulting in emotional performances that seem “in the moment”. The new album presents a selection of selected songs that combine all the band-members influences.#
