Coming off the back of a huge 2017, and after reaching #1 on the album charts for his debut-EP release ‘A Body Slow’, touring with ODESZA, selling out a huge 15-date headline tour across Australia and New Zealand, landing a major sync for Netflix’s ‘RIVERDALE’ and releasing his highly anticipated new single ‘EQUALISER’, Running Touch has today announced his very first US-tour supporting the likes of Crooked Colours around the country this Feb & March. 


For those not familiar with the Running Touch project, the mysterious Australian producer is renowned for his genre-bending abilities, and incredible knack for creating – whether it be music, film, writing, photography, design, artwork or anything in between. His multi-instrumental talents and his ability to adapt to any genre or style have earned him not only the reputation of a ‘producer’s producer’ but as one of the most interesting and promising talents to emerge out of the Australian music scene in recent times. 



Having never shown his face online, RT maintains a low-key profile across all of his many secret aliases, one of which has since been revealed as founding member and key studio writer for top Aussie hardcore band ‘Ocean Grove’, and to complicate things even more - all aliases curated by Running Touch fall into place in a much bigger artistic project, where they play respective ‘characters’ in a storyline that

Running Touch has been curating since day one. 



Amidst his chaotic touring schedule in 2017, Running Touch had been simultaneously writing the album Ocean Grove which was hand-picked as Triple J’s Album of The Week and debuted at #5 on ARIA’s album charts, leading the band (and Running Touch) to play a highly prestigious amphitheater mainstage set at Splendour In The Grass and sell out huge headline tours across Australia, Europe and the United States. 



Running Touch’s own live-show has undoubtedly been his biggest selling point, won him slots on mainstages at almost ALL of Australia’s biggest festivals and on national tours with acts including Odesza, ZHU, Safia and PNAU to name just a few. Combining his skills as a multi-instrumentalist, trained dancer, vocalist and hardcore-band member to create something that’s equally weird and wonderful all at once. Witness Running Touch for the first time and see for yourself why he is one of the most highly esteemed, forward-thinking and exciting acts coming out of Australia right now.
