Stepping into the brand-new Marshall Studio with legendary producer Chris Sheldon (Foo Fighters, Gun, Feeder), Bad Touch have recorded a rocking cover of Edwin Starr’s soul classic Twenty-Five Miles. Bad Touch’s lead singer Stevie Westwood said ‘This was one of the most fun song’s we have recorded, putting a rock spin on such a classic Motown track we felt like we had a bit more freedom with where we could take it. It’s loud, it’s funky and most importantly; it’s got soul.”
Released ahead of their November 2021 UK tour, Bad Touch were one of the first bands to enter the new state of the art Marshall Studio Recording Studio.
The Marshall Studio is a state-of-the-art recording facility located at Marshall Amplification’s global headquarters in Bletchley, Buckinghamshire built around a 70’s Neve 8048, heavily modified and customised for Marshall by Neve specialist Blake Devitt.
Stevie Westwood described working there as “an amazing opportunity. After such an awful 18 months for the music business, to be invited to such a space was a real gift… and we thank Chris for making our tunes sound interstellar.”
Bad Touch embark on their “Better Late Than Never” UK tour in November and December 2021, previously rescheduled from April 2021 (all original tickets remain valid). Special guests on all shows except Leo’s Red Lion are Midlands rockers PISTON.
Tickets are now available from www.badtouchrocks.co.uk/gigs-tours.
The 15-date tour includes their hometown Norwich (Nov 17), Newcastle (Nov 19), Glasgow (Nov 20), Southampton (Dec 1) and London (Dec 2), plus many more dates.
Bad Touch will perform songs from their critically acclaimed current studio album Kiss the Sky, as well as songs from their vast catalogue.
