Lexington, KY band Too Close To Touch share their new single “Hopeless” in collaboration with Telle Smith of The Word Alive. One of the final few recordings from late frontman Keaton Pierce before his untimely passing last year, the song’s arrival falls after his birthday, September 3rd. The band pays tribute to their beloved member with a sentimental statement:
“In loving, living, infinite memory of Keaton, we present 'Hopeless.'
This song is a culmination of our years long musical journey, sourced from a library of unfinished and unreleased material.
With bittersweet feelings we share this track- but with the support of all those involved, we've crafted something that truly honors Keaton's legacy.
We cherish your attentive ears and roaring voices keeping Keaton's spirit alive through his words.
Sing with us.
Kenny, Mason & friends.”
