Album Review: Haven’t Been Myself by Too Close To Touch

Too Close To Touch released their latest album on September 23, Haven’t Been Myself. Too Close To Touch is a rock band from Lexington, Kentucky composed of Keaton Pierce, Mason Marble, Thomas Kidd, Travis Moore, and Kenneth Downey. Their journey to the ears of listeners began in 2012. Too Close To Touch was their first EP released by Epitaph Records in 2014 and Nerve Endings was their first full length album released in March of 2015 by Epitaph Records. Too Close To Touch got exposure playing at Vans Warped Tour in 2016 and won “Best Underground Band” in this year Alternative Press Music Awards. Haven’t Been Myself is Too Close To Touch’s second full length album released via. Epitaph Records.

The singles released prior to the album were “What I Wish I Could Forget,” “Crooked Smile,” and “Sympathy.” This album release was acompanied by the music video for “Sympathy.” The track list is as followed:

  1. Sympathy
  2. Crooked Smile
  3. What I Wish I Could Forget
  4. Translate
  5. Miss Your Face
  6. The Art of Eye Contact
  7. Modern Love Affair
  8. Inside Voices
  9. What A Shame
  10. For Your Sake
  11. Eiley

Pierce lost his three year old sister, and the album is nothing short than emotional pulling at your heart strings. Pierce has an amazing rasp in his voice displaying a sense of urgency, anger and sadness. The songs “Miss Your Face” and “Sympathy” are emotional by the way Pierce creates a raw vocal. Too Close To Touch has such heart-wrenching lyrics that pull at your heart strings in the right way. The album is great, and doesn’t stray away from their previous sound of their prior records. Their prior records were great, but Haven’t Been Myself truly reflect the band’s drive, emotion, and overall composition.

You can pick up a copy of Haven’t Been Myself from your local record store, purchase the album on their website, download it from iTunes or Amazon, and stream from Apple Music and Spotify. You can catch Too Close To Touch opening for Crown The Empire this fall. Ticket information can be found here.
