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 Friday 5th October 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 from www.badtouchrocks.co.uk/gigs-tours and www.seetickets.com.
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 member’s influences which they proudly wear on their sleeve.

Aaron Buchanan & The Cult Classics were formed by the former Heaven’s Basement front man in mid-2016 currently comprising of Tom McCarthy and Laurie Buchanan on guitars, Mart Trail on Bass and Paul White on drums.
The Cult Classics have toured the UK and Europe alongside INME, Life of Agony and Royal Republic since the formation in support of their critically acclaimed album “The Man With Stars On His Knees”, released on 26 May 2017. They’ve also had huge support from Planet Rock Radio and Kerrang along with appearances at both Download Festival and Ramblin’ Man Fair.
Hard Rock Hell posted “It’s immediately obvious that Buchanan has seized the opportunity to strike free and plough a fresh creative furrow.” Classic Rock gave a 7/10 review finishing with “Buchanan is back on his feet, and swinging from the heavens.”
Daxx & Roxane are a kick-ass 4 piece rock ’n’ roll band originating from Switzerland, and now based in London. With Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple and AC/DC as their key influences, it’s no wonder that Kerrang! Magazine hailed them as “tooth-and-nail, testosterone-powered rock.”
Their philosophy, that “Rock’n’Roll is all about energy, and “All about creating an adrenalin rush” is reflected in their intense live shows, as anyone who witnessed their storming homecoming gig at the Montreux Jazz Festival, and their UK headline tour in early 2018 would certainly tell you. And being handpicked as main support at HIM’s final UK show in December 2017 at the Camden Roundhouse, speaks for itself.
Following their nationwide headline tour in early 2018, seeding the Daxx message into the hearts of rock fans all across the UK, they are ready to rock the Hard Rock Hell Road Trip in Ibiza on the 11th May, the Stone Free Festival at the London O2 on June 16th, and are gearing up for another tour in late 2018, re-visiting the new friends they’ve made around the UK, as well as proudly supporting some of the biggest acts on the circuit.
Fantastic audience support, and a host of 9 and 10 out of 10 album reviews, means 2018 is set to be a fantastic year. So, Hard Rock Hell Mag might just be right when they said that ‘Daxx & Roxane are on the fast track to Superstardom…”
