Bad Touch is an energetic, professional, talented hard rock band from Dereham who burst onto the Norfolk
music scene in 2009. Now performing both locally and nationally, they’ve gained a loyal following, and their
fan base is growing gig by gig thanks to their amazing live performances.
Career highlights so far include winning the Exposure Music Award 2012 for Best Live Act, as well as performing at the O2 Academy Islington, Hard Rock Hell 2012, The Underworld, the legendary 100 Club, Gig in the Park andthe Cambridge Rock Festival.
Bad Touch’s first recordings at Leeders Farm in 2011 were made under the watchful eye of Nick Brine, and these were released in a 1000 limited edition EP ‘Born to Please’ – which has now sold out.
A second 4 track EP recorded at The Mill Studios in May 2012 demonstrated the band’s determination to succeed through a meticulous approach to song writing and recording well beyond their years. All 4 tracks have spent a combined total of 15 weeks at number one in the UK Unsigned Chart during late 2012 and 2013.
The Band returned to the studio late 2012 in conjunction with The Animal Farm to released three singles, the
first being ‘Set the night on fire’ in March 2013; a high-tempo, catchy anthem, blending heavy riffs and catchy choruses, with a classic British rock beat at its heart. A further two singles have been released, “Too Late”
May 2013 and “Mirror Man” July 2013. Having recently performed alongside the likes of The Brew, The Electric Boys, Red White and Blues, Heaven’s Basement, Bonafide, Jettblack, Wolfsbane and Buckcherry, the boys are really making their mark on the rock world, and with a busy schedule for the remainder of 2013 which will see them travel all over the country, supporting The Quireboys and Bonafide the future is very bright.
George "Snaki" Lane: *Band Score 8.5/10* "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!"
