It’s all happening for Virginia natives Savage Hands as they pen a deal with SharpTone Records, home to the likes of Holding Absence, ALAZKA and We Came As Romans to name a few.
The signing comes prior to the release of the melodic hardcore quintet’s debut EP Barely Alive, due for release on March 2nd. From the record, their debut single “Red” has been lifted. A video for the track can be found below.
On their signing to SharpTone, Savage Hands spokesman Mike Garrow says:
Ever since SharpTone became active as a label, the band as a whole was very excited to pursue a relationship which eventually led us to this point. SharpTone has an amazing team and we are very happy and proud to now be a part of the family. SharpTone has been very supportive in all our creative decisions, which is what we love the most. This type of music is who we are and something we all love. They understand that and back us 100%. We can’t thank them enough! Here’s to 2018!
Adding to this, SharpTone offer:
The moment we heard Savage Hands we were instantly hooked. They have everything we love about music; great energy, impactful lyrics and anthemic melodies which stick with you for days! Barley Alive is a great introduction into the rock music landscape.
Elaborating on “Red”, Garrow states:
“Red”, it’s got a F**K this and F**K that type vibe. Not letting a “so called” loved one beat you down or constantly run your life into the ground. The funny thing about life is that when it’s beating down on you, you can decide when to pick yourself back up. Realisation and knowing what your worth is key. That’s what defines “Red”.
Barely Alive is out on March 2nd on SharpTone Records. Pre-orders are available now.
