New Bad Touch album “Half Way Home”

A Norfolk five-piece who are turning heads and going places in the industry, Bad Touch blend together elements of classic, 80’s rock with blues licks to create a powerhouse of melodic rock. Listing Led Zeppelin, Black Crowes and Rival Sons amongst their influences, they are a band who love to turn up the volume, but also infuse their songs with subtlety and melody.

It bodes well for new album ‘Halfway Home’, due out at the end of April, and you can get a taste of their style now with lead single ‘Wise Water’ out April 14th:

The album has been a long time coming for Bad Touch as it’s been 5 years since their inception. Having started with cover songs, their set has evolved into their own material. Which they have taken the time to hone and mould into their own style. Patiently working on their own material before launching into a debut album, the result is truly impressive.

Pic 3It comes as little surprise that a band of this quality has already impressed on the live circuit having played slots at Download Festival, Hard Rock Hell, Steelhouse Festival and Legends of Rock. This is great going for any band, let alone one who are yet to put out a full album.

Most impressive of all, in 2013 Bad Touch competed against over 400 bands from around the world in the Marshall Ultimate Band Contest, and came out on top. Winning the global competition set them on the course that would lead to their new album, and the final culmination of their hard graft will be available from April 27th.

In the meantime, they will be gigging as much as possible to spread the word, with a pre-release tour in the works. This is a live act that you don’t want to miss.
