Touchstone launch video for Contact

Touchstone have launched their first-ever video – and they shot the promo for Contact in Northcott Court, used in a number of Hammer House Of Horror movies.

The track is taken from the prog outfit’s acclaimed fourth album Oceans Of Time – and they’re gearing up for the release of a DVD shot during their supporting tour.

Live Inside Outside was directed, mixed and edited by Magenta’s Rob Reed and featured Touchstone’s entire performance at Bilston on 2013. Also included is their full set from their appearance at the High Voltage festival in London in 2010, and a documentary on the making of Oceans Of Time.

The band will offer the DVD on sale at their upcoming live shows, along with an EP containing Suffer The Little Children, a previously unreleased track laid down during album sessions.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
