Touchstone reveal Christmas show plans

Touchstone have announced a pair of shows in the UK for this December.

They’ve been out of the public eye since their final shows with former singer Kim Seviour late last year. But they’ve resurfaced to announce they’ll play London’s Borderline on December 17 and The Robin in Bilston on December 18.

A statement from the band continues: “The newly formed lineup are currently re-working some of the older tracks and writing new ones for firstly, a double A-side single and video to be released later this year – and then on to the full album early 2017.

“A major Hollywood actor is already onboard for the album.”

Ticket details for the shows will be revealed in due course, with the band also stating a warm-up gig will take place on December 16 at a venue still to be confirmed.

Seviour bowed out of the group last year saying her ME meant she couldn’t commit to the band in “the way that it truly deserves.” She’s been working with John Mitchell and Chris Hillman’s White Star Records on new material.
