Australia’s, The Touch have made quite a name for themselves over the last few years, thanks largely to their party-like live shows, fuelled by their frenetic brand of indie. 2011 has already been a big year for the boys down under, and it began with the band playing Adelaide’s Big Day Out Festival, winning the APRA Emily Burrows Award (South Australian band with most potential) and being handpicked by none other than Phoenix as support band for their only Australian headline show.
As the band prepare to touch down on European soil, they are releasing a new video for the fan-favourite, ‘Shot’, ahead of a brand new single release later this summer. The video for Shot, filmed in one continuous take in a derelict building, features singer Josh Moore being covered from head to toe in paint, fake blood and food. Although simple in its concept, it makes for memorable viewing.
The video is released alongside the announcement of their European tour which sees the band playing cities such as London, Brighton, Glasgow, Edinburgh and Hamburg throughout May / June.
