British rock group Bad Touch have premiered the official video for their new single on YouTube. ‘99%‘ is taken from their new studio album ‘Truth Be Told‘ which is released on 2nd December 2016.

99%‘ is remixed by legendary Rolling Stones engineer, Chris Kimsey (Kimsey engineered the Rolling Stones albums – 1971’s ‘Sticky Fingers’, 1978’s ‘Some Girls’ and 1980’s ‘Emotional Rescue’, and co-produced ‘Undercover‘ and ‘Steel Wheels‘).

The band will be commencing a November tour with Australian rock band Massive.  The band also open for Whiskey Myers at the Boston Arms in London on December 1st, followed by a date at Planet Rockstock on Saturday December 3rd.

Bad Touch’s lead singer Stevie Westwood enthused, “We’re excited about getting back on the road and co-headlining with Massive. It’s going to be a great tour full of high energy.

The new album was recorded at Mwnci Studios in Wales. “99%‘ is a great song to ride around in cars and drink beer and smoke pot and listen to rock and roll on the radio,” says Chris Kimsey. “Not that I drink beer or smoke pot , but I remember the simplicity of music and life so it’s good to hear it is alive and kicking with Bad Touch. I heard something that evoked a good time melodic love song. It just needed some re arranging and mixing to get to the heart of the song.

The new album sees Bad Touch celebrating classic rock with Southern boogie influences, supported with heavy guitar riffs and an iron-clad, tight rhythm section, in the great tradition of Black Crowes, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Led Zeppelin.

Inglorious will appear live at the Planet Rockstock Festival in Trecco Bay, Wales on December 4th and are working to set more shows around the release of the album.
