Now Hear This: Fake Hands | Fake Hands

One spin of their EP — incendiary noise-punk fuelled by unhinged vocals & dissonant guitar abuse — is all you need to understand that this Seattle band are the real thing.

THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE:Fake Hands may be a relative newcomer to the Seattle music scene, but their short tenure has been drawing a lot of attention. Building on the success of their debut single Coming Through, the band recently released their self-titled debut EP, featuring six original songs.

“We were still working on figuring each other out, style-wise, when we recorded the EP, which lent itself to the excitement and unpredictability of the songs,” explains singer-guitarist Aaron Wilson. ”You can hear elements of bands like Metz, Idles, Viagra Boys, Dead Kennedys and Bad Brains, but also Mr. Bungle and Black Sabbath. It’s all very exciting for us and we hope our listeners will feel the same way.”

The band formed in early 2022 and the chemistry was instant. Within the first few months, they had most of the EP done and then set out to see how the songs translated to a live audience. The reaction was overwhelmingly positive and they have been busy performing ever since.”
