American singer-songwriter and keyboardist Mark Mangold is a guest on the Friday NI Rocks Show on 26th March. Mark will be best known as a member of three bands – American Tears, Touch and Drive, She Said. On 26th March Touch release their first album of new music in almost forty years when “Tomorrow Never Comes” is released by Escape Music. The band released their first album in 1980, but their second album, recorded in 1982, wasn’t released until 1998. The band opened the first ever Monsters of Rock Festival at Castle Donington in 1980.

I spoke to Mark via Skype at his home in Sweden on 9th March and we chatted for around 25 minutes about the new Touch album as well as American Tears, Drive, She Said and a new project he is working on. You’ll find that interview and four tracks from the new Touch album on the Friday NI Rocks Show on 26th March -



The interview will be typed up and posted here later.
