Touch was the first band to play at the inaugural Monsters of Rock Festival at Castle Donington in 1980 along with Rainbow, Scorpions, Judas Priest, and Saxon. A live version of their hit "Don't You Know What Love Is" appeared on the compilation LP Monsters of Rock, documenting the performances at the festival. Touch's first album was released on Atco Records and their first singles, "Don't You Know What Love Is" and "When The Spirit Moves You" charted on the Billboard Hot 100. Their follow-up album was recorded in 1982 and produced by 2021 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Todd Rundgren, The record never came out, and Touch disbanded thereafter.
The original band with keyboardist/vocalist, Mark Mangold, guitarist/vocalist Craig Brooks, bassist/vocalist, Doug Howard, and drummer, Glenn Kithcart reformed after almost 40 years to create their critically acclaimed 2021 release "Tomorrow Never Comes." They have been releasing a series of videos with more to come, the latest one is “Try To Let Go”, which is one of the more aggressive songs on the record, featuring all three singing leads, Touch rocks hard on this lyrically relevant and timely song.
The band has also teamed up with Deko Entertainment to officially put out their highly successful 1980 debut album Touch and 1982 follow-up Touch II digitally. Both releases come with bonus live recordings and demos from that time period.
