Of the many bands playing a hybridization of alternative rock and post-hardcore in 2017, you have to consider Too Close To Touch one of best. 2 albums into their brief careers, they’re already selling out multiple dates on their co-headliner w/Waterparks, frontman Keaton Pierce has proven himself to be a powerhouse vocalist, and TCTT have written songs that their peers would kill to write – namely the grand finale to their most recent album, “Eiley”.
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.
here is a hand-held video of 'eiley' that a fan sent us from the other night. endlessly grateful for you voices and energy. you all mean so much to us.
