Bad Touch / Press

"Bad Touch’s music… tears through your rib cage, rips out your heart, and stamps rock and roll on it in permanent ink, so that even after you’ve left, you can’t rid yourself of their infectious songs"

"Norwich bluesy rockers, Bad Touch started off proceedings in a whirlwind of heavy riffs, head banging and hair and more hair - definitely ones to watch out for." - The Quireboys, Bonafide & Bad Touch - Bristol 02 Academy 6 Oct 2013 -

"Best Live Band, Nominee/Winner 2012"

Exposure Music Awards

" ‘Down’. A song full of classic rock n’ roll swagger, it grabs you by the throat and forces your attention. Thick heavy chords and tight well thought out lead coupled with solid backing that gets you pumped up. The song is well balanced, dipping in and out, slowing and building at the right times – creating what is basically a quintessential rock song. This is in no way a bad thing, Bad Touch execute it with such prowess that it strange to think that this song hasn’t filled arenas – yet."

"There is no doubt that Bad Touch are a true rock band, through and through. A solid rhythm section, thick heavy chords and classic blues rock licks combine to give the band a sound that is modern – while remaining true to their classic rock influences. They have taken classic rock and ran their own way with it – and it works. These lads are talented, to say the least. They do more than provide a soundtrack, they provide an atmosphere. The recording of the album is polished, yet the sound still feels raw, maintaining a live element that is a key factor in any decent rock recording. From the first listen of the album, it is clear that Bad Touch know what they are doing."

"They come from a music school that has shown us some great Hard Rock names, United Kingdom. I like to watch young people gain ground in the music scene! In short, I really like them because they know how to rock with attitude. Pure rock & roll stuff!"

"I picked up a copy of 'Down and Out' by Bad Touch along with the latest release from The Quireboys, and it's touch and go who has been getting the most plays since then. It has to be said that the young traditional sounding heavy rock bands aren't that common now. So it's refreshing to hear one so good. Solidly melodic they are neither too soft or too hard. The band pull exceptionally well together with the rhythm, the lead, the bass and the drums all getting their moments to shine as they build the framework to hang some sweet vocals on. It's going to be interesting to see where they go from here. With a good producer at the helm and the time and finances to do the album they can probably hear in their heads It's entirely possible that they could take mainland Europe by storm as that's where the gods of rock still hold sway. Yeah. I'm going to be keeping an eye on this band, and if good rockin' is what gets your motor running then so should you."

"The last time I was this excited about Rock was when I saw Led Zeppelin for the first time in 1970"

"At last, some pure rock energy, as Dereham based 5 piece, Bad Touch strike up. Their hard rock set reminded me a little of Heaven’s Basement or recent Papa Roach and their influences of Airbourne and Nicklback are Audible too. Seeming to enjoy every moment of being on stage, Their song “Poison’’ felt particularly anthemic although the best reaction received was for their cover of “Sweet Child O’ Mine”, drawing the audience close to the stage to savour it Very entertaining, I want to hear more…"
