Official press release:

Hands Like Houses, one of Australia’s biggest rock exports, have announced details for their highly anticipated fourth studio album -Anon., which will be released on October 12th through Hopeless Records. The album was produced by Colin Brittain who is known for his work with acts like Papa Roach, 5 Seconds Of Summer and One OK Rock. Today they also share the first single and official music video for “Overthinking”. Fans can watch the video now here:

In a joint statement, the band said:

“We’re a mess of excitement and nerves to finally bring you ‘Overthinking’, the first taste of our fourth album -Anon.. In 10 years of Hands Like Houses, it’s been the most fun we’ve had creating a record yet, and we’re unbelievably proud of the energy, the honesty and the stories that have gone into it. This is just the beginning.”

With -Anon., Hands Like Houses found themselves with the opportunity to immerse themselves completely in the new songs, after spending much of the last six years on and off tour. The rare free time off the road allowed them to follow their instincts and craft each new song with its own energy and identity. The final collection presents and captures fatalism and optimism, call-outs and self-reflection, realism and fantasy, politics and personal journey. Each its own anonymous piece to relate to, built around a shared human experience or perspective.

-Anon. is now available for pre-order. Fans who pre-order digitally will receive an automatic download of “Overthinking”.
