With a bellyful of hardcore punk fury and just a touch of sinister dissonance, Savage Hands have announced that their forthcoming debut EP Barely Alive will see release on 2nd March via SharpTone Records with SharpTone Records recently announced that the five piece have joined the family!

SharpTone Records commented on the signing: “The moment we heard Savage Hands we were instantly hooked. They have everything we love about music; great energy, impactful lyrics and anthemic melodies which stick with you for days!! Barely Alive is a great introduction into the rock music landscape.”

And Mike Garrow from Savage Hands commented: “Ever since SharpTone became active as a label, the band as a whole was very excited to pursue a relationship which eventually led us to this point. SharpTone has an amazing team and we are very happy and proud to now be a part of the family. SharpTone has been very supportive in all our creative decisions, which is what we love the most. This type of music is who we are and something we all love. They understand that and back us 100%. We can’t thank them enough! Here’s to 2018!”

To celebrate the band have released a new track, “Red”. Mike Garrow from Savage Hands commented on the debut track: “Red, it’s got a F**K this and F**K that type vibe. Not letting a “so called” loved one beat you down or constantly run your life into the ground. The funny thing about life is that when it’s beating down on you, you can decide when to pick yourself back up. Realisation and knowing what your worth is key. That’s what defines Red.”

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
