Bad Touch are pleased to announce they have signed a worldwide album deal with Marshall Records.

Their new album, “Shake A Leg”, will be released on October 5th, 2018.

The band will support the release with their “Shake A Leg” 18-date UK headline tour that starts on Wednesday October 14th at Newcastle University Union.

Planet Rock will start a 48-hour ticket pre-sale for the tour on Wednesday 20th June via www.planetrocktickets.co.uk. Tickets will then on sale to the general public on Friday 22nd June here and here.

The band’s highly anticipated third album, “Shake A Leg”, was recorded in their home county of Norfolk at Orange Tree Studios. Engineered, produced and mixed by Andy Hodgson, the new album follows the critically acclaimed 2016 release “Truth Be Told”, which featured the rock radio hit “99%”.

“Shake A Leg” takes a more personal and ambitious approach in song-writing and production due to the bands choice to write more spontaneously within the studio itself resulting in more emotional ‘in-the-moment’ performances. The new album features hand-picked songs that originate from a collective of all the members influences which they proudly wear on their sleeve.

Known by fans and critics alike for having a reputation as a busy and hard-working band, Bad Touch continue to tour far and wide and are looking forward to playing tracks from the new album when they tour the UK in October and November.

“Bad Touch are genuinely excited to sign with Marshall Records”, says the band’s rhythm guitarist Daniel Seekings. “We’re overwhelmed by their support and looking forward to a long-term partnership with great plans for the future”.
