British progressive rock quintet Touchstone are set to release their first ever 3 disc DVD, along with limited edition signed EP ‘Oceans’. The release will be available from July 28th.
It’s not long ago Touchstone released their 4th studio album ‘Oceans Of Time’, which RAMzine said was “passionate and inspiring – with enough metal weight to please fans of prog-metal – while still pleasing melodic-rock aficionados”. The album entered the official UK Rock chart at No.24 in autumn 2013, and the DVD is expected to have just as much success.
The DVD features previously unreleased footage of Touchstone’s full set from 2010’s High Voltage Festival in London’s Victoria Park, as well as the entire set from the last date of the ‘Ocean’s of Time’ 2013 launch tour at Bilston’s Robin 2 venue. Filmed, directed, edited and mixed by Magenta’s Rob Reed, this set features tracks from ‘Oceans of Time’ including Contact and Fragments, as well as older classics and crowd favourites such as Corridors and Strange Days.
Other additions to the DVD include a behind the scenes ‘making of’ documentary, which follows the entire creation of ‘Oceans of Time’, from the initial writing sessions to rehearsing and studio recording sessions.
This 3 Disc DVD/CD edition set includes an audio CD soundtrack of the Bilston show, mixed by Rob Reed, with packaging and artwork illustrated and designed by Adam Hodgson.
The first 500 copies of the DVD will also ship with 1 of 500 Limited Edition signed copies of the Oceans EP, which contains a brand new song ‘Suffer The Little Children’, plus 4 other previously unreleased tracks.
Touchstone – Live: Inside Outside is released July 4 2014 and is available for pre-order now here: http://bit.ly/1mfYtlD
