Touchstone in the UK Rock Charts!
22 October 2013
Cherry Red and Hear No Evil Recordings are proud to announce that Touchstone's brand new album 'Oceans of Time' made it into the Top 20 UK Rock Charts on Monday 21st October!
The release of the new album will be supported by a 6-date UK tour in October, where they will be joined by co-headliners Von Hertzen Brothers from Finland.
The band comment: "TOUCHSTONE are delighted to have signed to Hear No Evil Recordings for the release of our new album, Oceans Of Time. We are very much looking forward to working alongside Hugh Gilmour, the label manager, and to being a part of the bigger Cherry Red Records stable.”
‘Oceans Of Time’ features 11 tracks recorded and produced at Outhouse Studios by renowned producer John Mitchell (You Me At Six, Lower Than Atlantis, Funeral For A Friend), and is the successor to Touchstone’s previous albums: The City Sleeps (2011), Wintercoast (2009) and Discordant Dreams (2007).
On this eagerly awaited new album, the band continue their "Wintercoast” story with the dynamic, moving epic title track ‘Oceans Of Time’; the sequel to the title tracks of Wintercoast and The City Sleeps. Another familiar theme comes from ‘Shadow’s End’, the final part of the Shadow trilogy, which started with the track ‘Shadow’, from Discordant Dreams. Fans will enjoy a more guitar-orientated sound from Oceans Of Time than previous albums due to the nature of the writing process. All the music is written by Touchstone, with lyrics by lead vocalist Kim "Elkie” Seviour, and keys man Robert Cottingham, whilst guitarist Adam Hodgson again designed the cover artwork.
