Lexington, KY three-piece Too Close To Touch have dropped the third volume of their EP series I’m Hard To Love But So Are You. The 3-track release features songs produced by Dan Muckala (Echosmith, The Afters), and Erik Ron (Issues, Saosin, Panic! At the Disco). The band has also released a music video for “Chasing Highs” which you can watch, here.
“We wrote ‘Chasing Highs’ about decisions, bad or good, that you make when trying to avoid directly dealing with a problem,” explains drummer Kenny Downey. “It’s about being reactive in the sense that when something falls apart in your life you instantly try and replace the bad feeling with something better. The video showcases different characters who are seeking fulfillment in seemingly glamorous lifestyles that are exposed as illusions that they are creating. You see them put on the facade that their lives are such successes and something to be admired but in reality it’s a lie. In actuality they are really unhappy people who instead of trying to truly confront their realities and improve on them opt to take the easy way out and end up suffering even more in the end.”
Too Close To Touch will be hitting the road for the first time as three-piece supporting fellow Lexington band Emarosa, on the “Peach Club Tour”. The tour kicks-off November 29 in Sacramento and wraps with two nights at The Moroccan Lounge in Los Angeles; December 21 & 22. A majority of the tour is already sold-out.
