Australia's Hands Like Houses have launched pre-orders for their upcoming LP, Unimagine, out July 22nd via Rise Records. The band is now streaming a new track, titled "Introduced Species". Unimagine was produced by James Paul Wisner (Underoath, Paramore, The Academy Is...).
Frontman Todd Woodley says, "Unimagine, for us, is the result of the last two years of our lives. Everything we have seen, learned and experienced, personally and as a band, has found its way into this record one way or another. It's one thing to write an album, but to create something out of a deeper understanding of yourself and your abilities, especially with all the pressures of expectations you've built up along the way is a massive challenge. And in a way, that's what the album is about - finding happiness and satisfaction by deconstructing what has brought you this far and creating a foundation to create and grow from."
Australia's Hands Like Houses burst onto the scene in 2012, releasing their debut album "Ground Dweller" to incredible reviews and an even better reaction from people everywhere. The album had great sales out the gate, selling 4,500 first week, despite the band having never been to the US, The band kept on growing - thanks to them taking their live show in front of large audiences, touring the entire US with bands like Pierce The Veil and Sleeping With Sirens.
When the first album you put out has that kind of reception, it really puts the pressure on the artist for the follow up. One listen to "Unimagine." and it's clear that Hands Like Houses is the real deal. If the band felt any pressure they channeled it and used it as a motivator when they entered the studio with James Wisner (Underoath, Paramore, Dashboard Confessional). From start to finish, "Unimagine" is anthemic, driving and catchy.
The band recently played in the UK with Pierce The Veil and Woe, Is Me and are now spending the rest of the summer on the entire Vans Warped Tour.
