BAD TOUCH — New Album + Live Dates

You gotta love the Norfolk, UK, shaggy rock band BAD TOUCH . They always play their rhythmic numbers at a maximum volume, and always incorporate a good amount of heavy blues in songs that seem constructed from coal-tar and snake venom and come power-packed with huge, hooky choruses.

Now, the New Wave of Classic Rock favorites have announced the release of a fresh studio album: “Kiss The Sky” to be released via Marshall Records on Friday 19th June 2020. To carouse-in this newly pressed album, the band also plan to release an accompanying single titled: “Strut” on Friday 13th March 2020. This is the same day the new album becomes available for pre-order.

The new album will be released on CD, white vinyl and digital download.

Kiss The Sky” will be supported by a nationwide 12-date U.K. headline tour that begins at The Waterfront in Norwich on March 30. See dates below. All the U.K. tour dates will feature Piston as main a special guest, plus local support.

We’re so excited about this recording,” says Bad Touch lead singer Stevie Westwood. “Just to record our songs in such a legendary place as Rockfield was a real buzz. I know it’s a cliché but, in our humble opinion, this is our most exciting recording to date, and we can’t wait to get it out there in front of a crowd.”

Kiss The Sky” is an immediate & unvarnished rock and roll album that comes straight from the heart. For this, their fourth album, Bad Touch examined the essence of what makes a great rock album and concentrated on the cornerstone of their art — coming-up with a bunch of galvanizing songs. They’ve stuck to what they do best, which is to write hummable, fast, and lush rock candy.

The songs were written in their practice studio “The Cabin” in Norfolk where the band feel most comfortable and where they can concentrate on song-writing without interference from the outside world. But then it was recorded, produced and mixed by Nick Brine at the legendary Rockfield Studios in Monmouth, Wales and mastered at Abbey Road Studios in London.

The band have really tomahawked their distinctive bright sound on this album. They’ve uncorked something that is going to be rather special
