Due to the Coronavirus outbreak the “Kiss The Sky” UK tour in support of the album, has been re-scheduled to September and October 2020. The rescheduled tour kicks off at The Waterfront in Norwich on September 18th and will feature Piston as main special guest, plus local supports. All tickets remain valid and refunds are available at the place of purchase.

We’re sorry to say that due to UK venues closing daily, and after much deliberation with promoters and booking agents we have concluded that the most responsible course of action is to postpone our upcoming UK tour with Piston. The good news is that our brilliant team has already managed to reschedule all our dates and we hope that you can make the shows once this time has passed. Please stay safe, look after each other and wash your hands.”

Bad Touch

Bad Touch’s highly anticipated fourth studio album “Kiss The Sky” was recorded, produced and mixed by Nick Brine at the legendary Rockfield Studios in Monmouth, Wales. The album was mastered at Abbey Road Studios in London.

“We’re so excited about this recording,” says 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 a no-nonsense rock and roll album at heart. For their fourth album, Bad Touch have stripped everything right back and looked at what the essence of what makes a great album and at the core, great songs. They’ve stuck to what they do best, which is writing catchy, feel good rock music.

The songs were initially written in their practice studio “The Cabin” in Norfolk where the band feels most comfortable and can focus on the songs without outside world interference. The band have really nailed their sound on this album. When you turn it on you will instantly know it’s Bad Touch.

The production side of the album is about capturing the performance within the band themselves and capturing the “moment” and energy the band produce during their live shows. More plugging straight in, turning everything to 10 and going for it.

“Kiss the Sky” is a power-packed album that has the groove with huge chorus hooks, foot stomping guitar riffs and an abundance of energy overflowing within each track. If you want to see what all the fuss is about catch Bad Touch on tour throughout March and April 2020.
