Official press release:
Hands Like Houses are officially the newest members of the Hopeless Records family. To celebrate this signing, the band has dropped a brand new single and music video for “Drift”, which fans can watch below. Additionally, the band has signed to UNFD in Australia and New Zealand.
Frontman Trenton Woodley says “Drift” is about finding the connection:
“‘Drift’ is about a momentary lapse in momentum, where everything is still long enough to question where you’re going, where you’ve been and how they are somehow supposed to connect in the middle.”
On joining the Hopeless Records family, Woodley states:
“In terms of our career, we’re incredibly excited to be working with our friends at Hopeless Records, as they become that key link between our present and our future as a band.”
Fans will have a chance to hear Hands Like Houses perform “Drift” all summer at this year’s Vans Warped Tour. Tickets for the tour are on sale now at VansWarpedTour.com/dates. Returning home in October, the Drift Australian Tour will be Hands Like Houses biggest headline run to date.
The electrifying chemistry between lead singer Trenton Woodley, lead guitarist Matt “Coops” Cooper, guitarist/backing vocalist Alexander Pearson, bassist/backing vocalist Joel Tyrrell, and drummer Matt Parkitny, paired with a brilliant, unique artistic identity make Hands Like Houses one of the most exciting bands in the hard rock genre right now, touring with the likes of Pierce The Veil, Sleeping With Sirens, A Day To Remember and Bring Me The Horizon as well as their upcoming third trip on Vans Warped Tour.
