Norfolk five-piece Bad Touch have a busy winter ahead. Fresh from supporting the Kentucky Headhunters on their sell-out UK tour, they will embark on a UK co-headline tour with Australian rock band Massive as of 19th November, follow it with their second studio album Truth Be Told being released on 2nd December, and have just released ‘99%’ a single taken from the album, and remixed legendary Rolling Stones engineer and co-producer Chris Kimsey
“‘99%’ is a great song to ride around in cars and drink beer and smoke pot and listen to rock and roll on the radio,” Kimsey quipped, “Not that I drink beer or smoke pot , but I remember the simplicity of music and life so it’s good to hear it is alive and kicking with Bad Touch. I heard something that evoked a good time melodic love song. It just needed some re arranging and mixing to get to the heart of the song.” He has also remixed a further single – ‘Made To Break’ – for radio by Kimsey that will also be accompanied by an official music video.
With touring much on his mind, Bad Touch lead vocalist Stevie Westwood decalred, “We’re excited about getting back on the road and co-headlining with Massive. It’s going to be a great tour full of high energy.” The band also open for Whiskey Myers at the Boston Arms in London on December 1st, followed by a date at Planet Rockstock on Saturday December 3rd. Truth Be Told will be released the day in between on Bad Touch Records, with distribution via Cadiz.
