Australia’s critically acclaimed Hands Like Houses are currently streaming their sonically creative, stripped-down EP, Reimagine, via Alternative Press. The five song EP offers new versions of songs from their sophomore album, Unimagine, which is available now. Reimagine is available for purchase by going here.
Removing themselves from the hustle and bustle of of the modern world by writing their new EP in a small farmhouse in rural Australia, the new EP revisits five beloved songs in a unique, deconstructed way. Each song has been rewritten to create new, alternative versions of some their most fan-adored favorites. The album was recorded this past April in Los Angeles, California at Grey Area studios with producer Erik Ron, who has worked with bands like Panic! at the Disco, Saosin, Chiodos and more.
Hands Like Houses are renowned for their eclectic blend of technical and effects – heavy songwriting, inspired lyrics and explosive live performances. After signing to Rise Records in 2011 and boasting a dedicated and fast-growing international following, their YouTube channels have since seen over 11 million views. The band continues to gain massive support among both critics and fans and are showing no signs of slowing down in 2014.
Australia’s sonically adventuresome six piece, Hands Like Houses, is pleased to announce the music video premiere for their new song, A Tale of Outer Suburbia taken off their latest album, Unimagine – available through Rise Records. The video is far from your typical music video; rather it takes an ordinary tale and uniquely interprets it into something quite extraordinary, through an inspiring and achingly powerful artistic performance. The band is currently on tour with Chiodos and will hit the road this May on a headline tour with Slaves, Miss Fortune and Alive Like Me.
The band’s guitarist, Matthew Cooper gives insight on the creation: “We have been waiting quite a while to be able to work on a clip with Josh. He’s an amazing director that we grew up with in Australia and someone that we knew we could create something a little outside of the box with.
“It’s always interesting approaching video clips with the intention of creating something unique and captivating, separate from the song though as well as complimentary. We absolutely love the final product and it’s definitely one of the coolest projects we’ve been part of.“
To support the release of their new single and video, Hands Like Houses have announced a string of headlining shows. The sextet will head out on a national tour bringing their powerful live shows across the county. Don’t miss your chance to see Hands Like Houses perform in your city starting May 23 2014 in Boston, MA.
