In 2017, Bad Touch were on high rotation on Planet Rock, the UK’s leading classic rock radio station, with their single “Baby Get It On” featuring Mollie Marriott - a cover of Tina Turner’s classic track written for her by Ike Turner (originally released on her second solo album “Acid Queen” in 1975).

“We’re excited to join Skid Row on their rescheduled tour dates in August,” says Bad Touch’s lead singer, Stevie Westwood. “Skid Row are a legendary rock band and it will be fantastic to perform in front of their fans. We can’t wait to show their fans what Bad Touch are made of.”

Bad Touch – the five-piece rock band from Norfolk released their second studio album Truth Be Told on Bad Touch Records in December 2016. The album features the single“99%” thatremixed for radio by engineer and co-producer, Chris Kimsey (The Rolling Stones, Killing Joke, Ten Years After).

Bad Touch’s current album, “Truth Be Told” celebrates classic rock with Southern boogie influences, with heavy guitar riffs and an iron-clad, tight rhythm section, in the great tradition of Black Crowes, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Led Zeppelin. The band have built up a formidable reputation as one of the UK’s premiere rock bands who consistently put on an energetic and compelling live show for their fans. Their commitment to their fans and their music not only reaches new heights, but also connects with new fans who are discovering their music for the first time.
