Bad Touch have released a cover of The Allman Brothers Band’s Midnight Rider ahead of their UK tour.

“The original is one of my and [producer] Chris Sheldon’s all-time favourite songs, and I’m thrilled with how our version came out,” said lead singer Stevie Westwood.

“It’s got harmonies out the wazoo, it’s heavy, dirty, and Rob’s guitar solo is a belter. It might bother the Allman Brothers purists, but hopefully everyone loves it one eighth as much as I do.”

Produced by Sheldon (Feeder, Foo Fighters and Gun), it was recorded at the new Marshall Studio in Bletchley.

The band from Dereham will get their Better Late Than Never tour under way next month, with support coming from Piston.

It will be one of the first chances to hear songs from Kiss the Sky, which was released last year.

“I honestly cannot describe to you the feeling of being back at it with my brothers. We’re overjoyed, said Westwood.

“We’re fired up and cannot wait to be playing to all of you.”

The tour will kick off with a sold-out show at the Waterfront, Norwich, on Wednesday, November 17.
