A faint sound was heard somewhere in Orlando, Florida not too long ago. It continued to grow and ring until it was forced to be heard. This was the sound of five individuals creating something different, something that had not been heard in such a manner. Blending elements of contemporary hardcore, rock and roll, and old school metal, Hand To Hand let go of the boundaries and limitations their previous efforts had placed on them, and played what was in their collective, bright hearts. With vocals that range from singing to screaming, the band disarms you with their melodic hooks, only then to knock you down with brutal emotional breakdowns. But the band keeps growing, and at a spectacular rate. In little over half a year, they have accomplished what most unsigned artist take years to achieve.
Hand To Hand's debut five song EP, "Fast Forward Your Thoughts" is a stunning introduction to their distinctive world. With Producer James Paul Wisner (Dashboard Confessional, Further Seems Forever, 36 Crazy Fists) at the helm, the band have created a record that stays true to the hardcore scene that they hold dear, and the rock world waiting to embrace them.
The band has thus far spent their short life touring all over the South East with artists like Minus Driver (Universal Records), assaulting audiences with their intense live performance and packing key hometown venues such as The Hard Rock Live. Drawing 300+ devoted followers to each show, they continue to strive and succeed.
With their freshman recording under their belt, a growing loyal fan base, and a relentless dedication to getting out on the road, Hand To Hand continues to leave a trail of bloody broken guitar strings and astonished spectators everywhere they go. They prove time and time again, that they can honor their past with no fear of the future.
