Random Hand - Release new Album ‘Inhale/Exhale’

RANDOM HAND from Keighley in West Yorkshire are tearing up the UK scene, exploding across the nation's dancefloors with their ferocious in your face ska-punk-metal mash-up. Drawing influences from four very different but totally compatible individuals, hooked on the buzz they create as a unit, Random Hand have been taking on all comers and playing alongside the likes of Sonic Boom Six, Leftover Crack, Mustard Plug, Agnostic Front, The King Blues and Skindred, building a solid and ever increasing following with their intense and dynamic shows.

Random Hand

May 2007 saw the release of the band’s debut album, 'Change of Plan' on Riot Music to great reviews and a summer of constant touring including the Rebellion and City Invasion festivals and cumulating with a triumphant set headlining the Topman Unsigned stage at the Leeds Carling Weekend. The year ended with the band on tour with skapunk legends the Voodoo Glow Skulls, impressing the Glow Skulls enough to be invited to join the band on tour in America in Spring 2008, followed immediately by dates in the UK with Sonic Boom Six and Big D & The Kids Table and heading into another busy summer capped with two storming sets opening the Lock Up Stage at the Reading & Leeds festivals, before finishing the year as guests of Streetlight Manifesto across the country.

RANDOM HAND's 2nd album, ‘Inhale/Exhale’ is set for a February European release on ‘Rebel Alliance Recordings’ with a U.S.A release to follow late Spring, accompanied by almost constant touring throughout the year. You can preview their album live when they tour throughout January and the album release coincides with the band's guest spot on Reel Big Fish's February UK tour. Dates for the tour are as follows:

& on tour with Reel Big Fish

This is the dawning of a new era, strap yourself in and hang on tight, it's going to be a wild ride!

"A punk rock mashup that will have you moshing one minute and skanking the next. Triumph awaits for Random Hand." - Big Cheese Magazine

"The band's ability to show their varied musical influences shines through consistently, making for an extremely interesting and ultimately enjoyable listening experience. So whether you like brassy ska-punk ('Snakes and Ladders') or something a little more aggressive (most of the other songs) there will be something for you on this record. One of the UK's best underground bands, hopefully this will help them get the credit they deserve." -

"Random Hand entices an entire dance floor assembly, serving a concoction of metal, punk and ska. Considering the early time the sheer number of people pogoing from opener 'Answers' to closer 'Anthropology' is a sight to behold. Who says all Londoners stand about with their arms crossed?" -

Super Tennis

2008 saw the release of Tellison’s debut album ‘Contact! Contact!’ an album packed full of massive hooks, passionate melodies and brilliant independent pop songs that won the hearts of fans and critics all over the country. Following the demand from fans who wanted to remix these songs, Tellison handed over raw, unmixed versions of the album tracks and allowed them all to be taken off in new directions. Slowly these new versions came filtering back and amazed by the results the band decided to compile the best and release a remixed album.
Stunningly limited and lovingly packaged in a remixed version of the original album artwork "Contact! Contact! Remixed" including ‘Wasps Nest’ is available through the band's own label for as long as stocks last.

"This band are destined for great things Superb." - Rock Sound
"Expect to hear much, much more from these rising heroes in the future." - Kerrang!
“With their jerky dance- punk rhythms smoothed out into melodic choruses the trio pose the best kind of dilemma – should we try and dance or concentrate on learning the words?” NME
"Tellison deserve to rule the world." - The Fly
