The Skinny: Hands & Teeth are proud to announce that they will be releasing a new EP on March 11th via Underground Operations. Before The Light will be available as a limited 7″ vinyl and digitally worldwide. “Not The Same”, the EP’s debut song, is now streaming via YouTube and can be heard just below.

This eagerly anticipated EP is marked progression from the earlier sounds of independently released Hunting Season (2012) and Enjoy Your Lifestyle (2010). Exploring the strengths of the group’s intriguingly unique vocal melodies, soaring harmonies and complex musicianship, the band has driven the songwriting home with confidence and more of a pop sensibility. Following the abrupt departure of a founding band member, Hands & Teeth found themselves in a situation where re-invention was the only option.

“Hands & Teeth has always been about pushing to the forefront in a city where standing back is the norm. We’ve been having fun just MOVING. No more standing still – dance, pulse, move your head. No one else is gonna do it for you.” said guitarist/vocalist Kevin Black of the new material.
