Lexington, Kentucky’s Too Close To Touch have won the award for Best Underground Band, presented by Entertainment One at the 2016 Alternative Press Music Awards!

“This is amazing. If you would have told me that when we released our first record I’d be standing here, I’d think you were a liar,” shared the band during their acceptance speech. “There were a lot of amazing bands in this category against us, so before i go any further, make some noise for them. We’d like to thank AltPress for the award [and] everyone at Epitaph Records.”
