THE HAND - RECORD RELEASE - FULL ALBUM: “FIND A REASON” CD & "FIND A REASON/ALL YOU WANT" 7" VINYL HIFI MANTRA 444-05
Record Release Shows - February 23rd at the Record Exchange (Free - all ages) and February 24th at the Neurolux ($7 - 21+)
The Hand was formed in 1998 with the intention of the line up being Pat “Brown” Schmaljohn on Bass and vocals, Scott Schmaljohn on guitar and vocals and a drummer that would put up with the Schmaljohn brothers. This plan was cut short with a substance addiction and later death of Pat Brown (RIP) in1999. Scott and Pat were eager and excited to play together after a break from years of playing, recording and touring in Boise bands State of Confusion (1984-1988) and Treepeople (1988-1992).
Following the tragedy, The Hand’s first line up included Scott Schmaljohn on guitar and vocals, Darin Dodd on drums and Chris Bock on bass.
The Hand currently features Cody Roy (Demoni) on drums, James Johnson (Trigger Itch) on bass, and Scott Schmaljohn on guitar and vocals. Uniting in 2014, The Hand had a new vigor, urgency and energy. The Hand was asked to tour in February of 2016 on an 11 shows in 12 days west coast tour with Built to Spill. “We were well received on tour, and knew we had to get a new record out.”
With this new momentum, chemistry and song writing, The Hand went into Andy A.’s ”Chop Shop” studio to record 9 new songs. The newest full length recording is titled “Find a Reason.” This full length CD is to be officially released February 23rd at the Record Exchange all ages show. The Hand will also have a two song vinyl 7” limited edition of 30 (signed and numbered) for sale at both shows. Online release to come soon.
The Hand’s influences range from old blues, hard rock, pop, and punk. The Hand is a high energy power trio.
The Hand is planning tour dates in the Spring, as well as playing Treefort Music Festival Wednesday, March 22nd at the Neurolux.
