Yorkshire ska/punk/metal crossover acr Random Hand may have just finished up their final run of shows as a band, but their final, PledgeMusic funded LP, Hit Reset is still awaiting its release on October 2nd via Bomber Music. Random Hand bassist Joe Tilston has said this about the final tour:
“We’ve sincerely had the best send off a band could hope for. On this tour, we’ve played gigs that have represented every aspect of our career to date, from massive festival gigs to thousands of people, who love our music, to peculiar pubs in the middle of nowhere, playing to a hen party and a load of strangers…We’ve said at every turn, we’ll be back, and we will. When? We do not know. We all have new chapters in our lives to figure out. We still all firmly believe this was the right choice to make for Random Hand. Had we carried on blindly and not discussed the issues within, we would have disappeared or fallen apart. Instead we were able to treat ourselves and everyone else, to one last focused blow out, and leave an album we’re damn proud of. Thanks again everyone.”
Ahead of the street date, the band have released a stream of the lead single, After the Alarm. Check out the stream below, along with the cover art for Hit Reset

West Yorkshire, UK based ska punk outfit have announced a final tour before going on an extended hiatus. The band are also working on a new PledgeMusic funded album which is due to drop via Bomber Music on September 14th, the day after the final show. Bassist Joe Tilston explains the logic:
“We’re wanting to give all the classics one last hurrah, before we go on an extended break. The new album we’re writing is a hard hitting punk rock album, and we can’t wait for everyone to hear it. It’s a real shame though that we’re writing something that we’re not going to tour though. The new record is going to be released the day after the last gig, as a parting gift”
