[NEWS] Hold Hands announces debut EP



Hold Hands are releasing their debut EP on the newly founded Swedish label Socks Off Collective. Hailing from Kungsbacka, a small town just south of Gothenburg, these youngsters started playing together in 2009 with the ambitious goal of taking the hardcore genre to new levels. While maintaining the core of the music - that being hard and fast - Hold Hands aren’t afraid to mix it up with soothing choruses and beautifully melodic guitars. They even boldly change between swedish and english vocals with ease.

Taking influence from both hardcore acts like Refused and Section 8, more melodic acts like Propagandhi and At The Drive-In to post rock acts like Explosions In The Sky and And So I Watch You From Afar, Hold Hands wields a truly unique sound that despite the wide range of musical references is delivered with rock solid confidence.

This is something that clearly shows on the quintets first release ”Best Friends & Missed Friends” which with it’s immensely bombastic and intense sound leaves even some of todays more prominent hardcore acts in the dust.


You can stream their entire EP on their Bandcamp or Tumblr and also remember to follow them on Facebook.
