ELECTRIC TOUCH SETS NORTH AMERICAN TOUR DATES IN FEBRUARY AND MARCH 2012 WITH HOT CHELLE RAE

“DON’T STOP,” ISLAND RECORDS DEBUT 4-SONG DIGITAL EP, GAINING MOMENTUM AT ALTERNATIVE, HOT AC, AND COLLEGE RADIO

New album from Austin, Texas-based Anglo-American band due early 2012, with Grammy-nominated Producer of the Year, Howard Benson


Austin, Texas’ hometown favorites Electric Touch, who have made true believers of audiences at the SXSW (South By South­west), Lollapalooza, Warped, Coachella, and Austin City Limits festivals, and CMJ Music Marathon in New York so far this year – will commence a major North American tour supporting Nashville’s Hot Chelle Rae on February 10th at Family Gras in Metairie, Louisiana. Further North American dates in April will be announced in the months ahead.  (Please see initial itinerary below for confirmed dates.)

Alternative, Hot AC, and college radio rock formats are rallying behind 
“Don’t Stop,” the first Island release from Electric Touch, a four-song digital EP released in October. The new video for “Don’t Stop” premiered on #1 music destination VEVO. “Don’t Stop” was produced by Grammy-nominated Producer of the Year, Howard Benson (credits: My Chemical Romance, Daughtry, Creed).  Tracks comprise: 1. “Don’t Stop” * 2. “Magnetic” * 3. “Dominoes”* 4. “Do It Again.”

The upcoming tour dates and the digital EP set the scene for the early 2012 release of Electric Touch’s first album on Island Records, details to be confirmed shortly.  It follows up their self-titled debut album of 2008, on Texas indie Justice Records.

Electric Touch – Nottingham, England’s Shane Lawlor on lead vocals, Texas-born Christopher Leigh on guitar and his fraternal twin brother Louis Messina, Jr. on drums, and newest members Isaac Strycker (on guitar, keyboards and vocals), and Portland Musser (on bass and vocals) – won thousands of hometown fans with their opening day performance at September’s Austin City Limits Festival 2011.  They “provided ACL goers with a good dose of energy and an arena-sized sound they won’t soon forget,” raved the Austin Post.

The five-man Anglo
-American band combines the rock passions of its British and American bandmates.  They call their music “Tales of Ordinary Life in Glorious Technicolor,” and the garage-rock pulse of “Don’t Stop” sets the pace, a ferocious push-pull of sex and romance, from the highest highs of ecstatic union to the lowest lows of heartbreak.

Lawlor, who pens Electric Touch’s lyrics, said of the EP, “It’s those bittersweet twists of irony, that’s kind of what all the songs are about. A lot of it is the poetry of the street, those late-night conversation with friends and loved ones outside the club.  Keep it together.  Don’t give up… We’re not tortured souls in an ivory tower making music for ourselves.  We want to spread the joy, make people happy..”
