The release date of the reissue of the album „Don't Look Down“ by the Canadian Heavy Metal Band TOUCHDOWN on CD is June 30th, 2017. The pre-order phase will start on June 16th, 2017 in our webshop. The album will be released in a limited Edition of 500 copies (handnumbered), with certificate and hologram.

We have to go back to the early 80s to find the roots of the canadian band TOUCHDOWN. In 1984 they released their debut album via Woolfe Records. To complete the line-up, Dave Temple, Perry Segal and Gary Hurley found a really good female vocalist, which was a rare stroke of luck.

Terry Kushner had a strong powerful voice and so the title song "Don't look down" and opener of the album normally would have been enough to convince everybody to buy the album. But if you have a look on the cover artwork it will be obvious that it could have been not clear for the people that TOUCHDOWN were into melodic Heavy Metal. So finally not too many people put it on their turntable.

The distribution worked more or less satisfying, but in the end sadly Canada was far from being the centre of the Metal world in that time. By listening to "Don't look down" today it is apparent that the band found a quite unique style and still is really worth an investigation today. The next album one year later sadly was the last release by the band. More information you will find in the booklet of "Tricks of a trade".
