Touchstone have announced that the two farewell shows for Kim Seviour in November will also be Rob Cottingham’s final gigs with the band. As quoted in Prog:
“It’s been a privilege to see the band grow from the very early days when I kicked the band off with a totally different line up in a small village hall.
“After recent discussions, however, the time is clearly right for me to bow out gracefully at the same time as Kim. I want to thank my bandmates old and new for everything, and wish them every success in their exploits going forward”.
The band had previously announced that they’d be going on indefinite hiatus while various members worked on individual projects, but this announcement implies that the three remaining members intend to continue to work together under the Touchstone name. It’s a case of “watch this space”.
