Roadstars 2017 Broken Witt Rebels & Bad Touch
Broken Witt Rebels experienced success in 2016 with the release of their 5-track EP featuring the singles “Low” and “Guns” which received airplay on Planet Rock and XS Manchester, while “Low” was Track of the Week on Radio X.
On October 27th, they won “Best Rock Act” at the first annual Unsigned Music Awardsheld at The Troxy in London, and closed the Awards by performing “Guns”. BWR were also nominated for “Best Live Act”.
The title of BWR EP Georgia Pine comes from an old stoner reference “As high as a Georgia Pine“. For BWR, the metaphor is more about their ascension to the top. It’s clear they haven’t come to make up the numbers.
With the title track “Georgia Pine“ as their most recent single, the Rebels show their softer side, with Danny Core’s trademark howl melts hearts with the impassioned lyrics “You’re always there for me.”
BWR have amassed over 1 million video plays and “Guns” became the 9th most shared and play-listed track on Spotify in the UK during July. With a major label deal around the corner, the future’s looking bright.
Broken Witt Rebels are a band not to missed and with Bad Touch as will this is a double live delight
Bad Touch has dovetailed the album release, and UK co-headline tour on November 19th with the Australian rock band Massive.
The new album, which was recorded at Mwnci Studios in Wales, features the singles“99%” and “Made To Break”, both *remixed for radio by the legendary Rolling Stones engineer and co-producer, Chris Kimsey. Both singles will be accompanied by official music videos.
“99% is a great song to ride around in cars and drink beer and smoke pot and listen to rock and roll on the radio,” says Chris Kimsey. “Not that I drink beer or smoke pot , but I remember the simplicity of music and life so it’s good to hear it is alive and kicking with Bad Touch. I heard something that evoked a good time melodic love song. It just needed some re-arranging and mixing to get to the heart of the song.”
The new album, Truth Be Told sees Bad Touch celebrating classic rock with Southern boogie influences, supported with heavy guitar riffs and an iron-clad, tight rhythm section, in the great tradition of Black Crowes, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Led Zeppelin.
