TOUCH is known for memorable and diverse songs, stellar musicianship, lush vocal harmonies and dynamic stage performance. Touch is invariably on the list of TOP AOR Bands, and their debut album is considered by many to be among the best AOR Melodic Rock albums of all time.

The band has now reformed to create the new album “Tomorrow Never Comes”, which is hailed as their best work to date.

TOUCH originally formed in New York City in 1978 with Mark Mangold (keyboards and vocals), Glenn Kithcart (drums), Craig Brooks (guitars and vocals) and Doug Howard (bass and vocals). All the band members had previously been in the last version of the band American Tears (releasing three albums on Columbia Records).

Touch’s first album was released on Atco in the U.S. and Ariola in Europe, and their first singles, “Don’t You Know What Love Is” and “When The Spirit Moves You” charted on the Billboard Hot 100. “Don’t You Know What Love Is” was played heavily on AOR stations in the USA at the end of the 1970s and early ’80s, and also was favourably received by the Melody Maker chart in the U.K.

Touch was the first band to play at the inaugural Monsters of Rock Festival at Castle Donington in 1980. A live version of “Don’t You Know What Love Is” appeared on the compilation L.P. Monsters of Rock, documenting performances at the festival. Now Touch is celebrating their return with an exciting new release.
