Rob Cottingham Announces New Post Touchstone Band Cairo


(Prog) Former Touchstone man Rob Cottingham has launched a new project called Cairo. Founding Touchstone keyboard player Cottingham is joined in Cairo by Rachel Hill on vocals, James Hards on guitars, Paul Stocker on bass and Graham Brown on drums.

Their debut album Say will be released on October 3 and is available for pre-order now. Cottingham says: "I was after a new sound with the same sensibilities as in my previous writing but with heavier passages, as well as more ambient, electronic soundscapes - plus more time spent on crafting the blend of male and female vocals within the overall production of the music.

"We have just recorded our debut album Say at Outhouse Studios, with the mighty John Mitchell at the helm. Album launch shows are scheduled in the UK for November with our special guests, Luna Rossa." A trailer for the album, along with the artwork and tracklist, can be seen here.
