Too Close To Touch release new single titled “Burn”

Recently the post-hardcore band Too Close To Touch has released yet another single titled “Burn.” Following their previous single, “Before I Cave In” that was released in late November, we are pretty sure you’re going to like this single just as much as the others.

We already know what the song is about. If you don’t, look it up. But it’s a song that, to our knowledge, hasn’t been performed live before this tour. Given the crushing subject matter, it’s not surprising. As they say, however, there is catharsis and healing in emotion. And given the band’s passionate performance of the song, this tour won’t be one to forget.
