The year is 2010 and the place is a college in Norfolk, where five people come together with the idea to start a band and call that band Bad Touch. Between then and 2015 Bad Touch played in copious amounts of venues, building their reputation for live performances, won the Marshall Ultimate Band Contest, played Download Festival, Hard Rock Hell and Steelhouse Festival before releasing their debut album in 2015. The hard work continued supporting the likes of Blues powerhouse Jared James Nichols before releasing their second album and performing at Rambling Man Festival, Wildfire and Amplified.

Now in 2018 Bad Touch bring us their third album and put all their experience and passion into audible form for our enjoyment for this which is their first album since signing a worldwide album deal with Marshall Records.

Shake A Leg kicks into action and immediately the smooth Southern Rock waves begin to roll over you and soothe the worries of the world away. The slick riffs begin to meander throughout the tracks weaving their way around solid bass, thumping drums, mesmerizing solos and and a pure Rock n Roll vocal.

The up tempo feel good Rock music shines through in ‘Dressed To Kill’ which is a toe tapping, sing a long, that just leads thoughts to it being performed live as the structure heads slightly Rockabilly before heading back to continue its glorious journey.

‘I Belong’ is a slower track, full of heart and emotion which showcases the incredible vocal it its rawest, along with the feeling that oozes from every instrument before ‘Show Me What It Means’ returns us back to hammering bass, slick Southern sounding riffs and energising drums topped by a powerfully smooth vocal.

All 13 tracks on the album are full of passion a testament to the hard work that the band have put in during the 8 year journey they have so far completed and on the form of Shake A Legthat journey is going to be right to the top. This is 45 minutes of top-drawer rock music with a Southern feel. That will leave you singing along and feeling fantastic.
