“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.

“It’s always hard to recreate the live energy created during a show in the studio, but this time I really think we’ve nailed it,” says Bad Touch’s guitarist Robert Glendinning.

Continues Glendinning, “We chose Rockfield Studios one obviously for its legendary reputation but two because it’s just like being at home. It’s what we know, being in the countryside and where I feel we are all inspired.”

“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.

“Bad Touch live for being on the road,” adds Westwood. “There’s nothing we love more than giving people an escape from the trials of life and playing our brand of feel-good rock and roll for the soul..”

“As a unit, we plan on hitting the UK hard with regards touring and festivals,” says Westwood. “We were very lucky to do more in Europe throughout 2019, and we hope to continue that trend into this year as well. We’ve got a couple of things in the pipeline, and we are beyond ecstatic to be opening the main stage at Ramblin’ Man Fair. It’s one of our favorite UK festivals, and to think that they’ve put us on the main stage alongside giants like Clutch and Monster Truck is so cool..”
