I'm very excited to share a brand new song off Too Close To Touch's upcoming debut record, Nerve Endings, which comes out March 24th via Epitaph Records. "Hell To Pay" deals with the difficult reality of the absentee father, a reality I've not only experienced, but one that many others have experienced as well. To drive it home, The Word Alive vocalist Telle Smith comes in to deliver one of the best guest vocal spots I've heard in a long time. If you liked what you heard, you can pre-order the record.
