Product Description

UK five-piece rock band TOUCHSTONE are excited to reveal they have signed an exclusive deal with Hear No Evil Recordings/Cherry Red Records for their much-anticipated 4th studio album 'Oceans Of Time', which is due to be released on 7th October 2013. The release of the new album will be supported by a 6-date UK tour in October, where they will be joined by co-headliners Von Hertzen Brothers from Finland. The band comment: 'TOUCHSTONE are delighted to have signed to Hear No Evil Recordings for the release of our new album, Oceans Of Time. We are very much looking forward to working alongside Hugh Gilmour, the label manager, and to being a part of the bigger Cherry Red Records stable.' 'Oceans Of Time' features 11 tracks recorded and produced at Outhouse Studios by renowned producer John Mitchell (You Me At Six, Lower Than Atlantis, Funeral For A Friend), and is the successor to Touchstone's previous albums: The City Sleeps 2011), Wintercoast (2009) and Discordant Dreams (2007). On this eagerly awaited new album, the band continue their 'Wintercoast' story with the dynamic, moving epic title track 'Oceans Of Time' ; the sequel to the title tracks of Wintercoast and The City Sleeps. Another familiar theme comes from 'Shadow's End', the final part of the Shadow trilogy, which started with the track 'Shadow', from Discordant Dreams. Fans will enjoy a more guitar-orientated sound from 'Oceans Of Time' than previous albums due to the nature of the writing process. All the music is written by Touchstone, with lyrics by lead vocalist Kim 'Elkie' Seviour, and keys man Robert Cottingham, whilst guitarist Adam Hodgson again designed the cover artwork.

Unlike the previous reviewer, this is pretty much what I personally wanted from the band. Strong song writing with hidden depths, even after only two listenings. Production seems particularly good, with a nice mix on the drums nicely - punching through even on my crap cheap car CD player, but not at the expense of the overall mix. My one disappointment is the male backing vocal are lower and more muffled on some songs than on previous albums, which I've always felt was an important part of Touchstone's sound. This is more than offset though by the lead vocalist. She really spreads her vocal wings on this album, proving to be a stronger singer than I've perhaps previously given her credit for. When the updated version of 'Solace' began, I had misgivings, as this is a song I've always liked in it's ballad format. However, the new version builds into a powerful rock version, which turns out to be equally as enjoyable, but in a different way. I've dropped the one star, only because as one previous reviewer mentioned - perhaps there's no one new stand out classic, though I might change my mind on this after further plays.

As previously said this album is a grower. Flux starts loud, stops and then builds to really showcase the fabulous vocals. This girl gets better and better and the band is so tight on this record. Play it LOUD in the car then come home and play it with a beer so u can listen to the quality.LOVE this band and this is their best record to date.

I checked out this band after they toured with Romeo's Daughter and was so impressed I bought their previous material. For me this was the first new release and I was looking forward to it. On first listening there were none of the stand out tracks of previous CDs....but in time the album has come alive and has a hidden depth. Well worth the effort, in my opinion. Touchstone go from strength to strength!

Not into prog rock which this band is described as...BUT this is superb. Horses for courses of course. I am a huge fan of Uriah Heep and classic rock generally if that gives you an idea where I came from with my ears. I now have all Touchstone albums and can hear development and change with each album but this is the one I heard first. Brilliant and varied drumming, interesting keyboards, bass that rocks, understated but completely fulfilling guitar work (not your stand at the front and widdle up and down the pentatonic scale) and a lady singer who adds to the mix wonderfully. The songwriting is strong and commendable. Some say this sounds like a lot of other bands, so I guess I should get out more cos I disagree but I am quite happy to stay in and listen to Touchstone. This is one of my most favourite albums and it keeps getting played continuously. That hasn't happened for about 30 years. Saw them live a week ago and they did not disappoint. (they also happily signed all me cds.) A very together band!
