Facedown Records have finally announced & released material from Everything In Slow Motion, which is a new project from Shane Ochsner of Hands. You can now purchase digitally or get the vinyl (only 330 available) here. Listen to 2 new songs below.
Woo Hoo!! This is awesome!
Thank you for putting these things up! I Love Hands and this stuff is great. I wish more people could here this! Every time I listen to Give me rest or even well listening to this stuff, its so honest. We need more music like this out there!
Hands last album is not one of the best of last year, it’s one of the best of all time!
parker, words out of my keyboard.
Am I the only one that read the headline and lamented at the inefficiency of Facedown deciding to announce everything in slow motion?
THHIIIIISSSSSS WEEEEEEEK WEEEEEE SIIIIIIGGGNNNNNED AAAHHHH NEEEEWWWWW BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHNNNND…
Haha!! Love it.
Hahaha was just about to say that
I try to be creative every now & then, haha.
Hey Josh what do you think of these two new songs?
I listened to both tracks and I love them :)
Weird that this is tagged as metalcore. This music, and anything previous by Hands, has never really been metalcore. They’ve always played an expression of post-metal, in the vein of Neurosis, Cult of Luna, or Isis. All that said, this single is absolutely amazing. I’m loving this. :)
We only use a select group of tags to keep things organized, otherwise it would be pointless to use genre tags at all.
I am going online right now and buying these songs. I loved Hands especially The Sounds of Earth album and this reminds me o that record. I support Shane and his music endeavors. They won me over with this!
Defeater meets Hopesfall?
Enjoying the new song Red. Sweet release.
I am liking this a lot!
Chills from both songs. Sounds like the natural progression from Give Me Rest. Incredible.
BUT JUST TWO SONGS?!?! Is there a full length planned anytime? :)
According to this link we can expect an album in 2013!
(It says it right under the little search bar on the side of the page.)
Mewithoutyou! no but that’s what I thought first.
BUT. HUGE FAN ALREADY.
seriously, RED reminds me of torches together!
I think I’m going to trat myself to this for being smoke free for 3 weeks.
I’m pretty excited about this.
I why wonder he just didn’t release it under the Hands band title? I know they disbanded but why go under a different alias and build up everything from the start? Just curious.
I’m sure it’s a “Hands was OUR thing” situation if you know what I mean. I think if I was in a band and everyone left but me I might change the name. Maybe not, but I don’t blame him. BUT I will say this is definitely Hands in terms of sound. And that. is. AWESOME! :)
The response above is pretty much correct. We (Hands) have been innactive as a group for quite a while. Shane wrote and recorded the majority of ‘Give Me Rest’ on his own and wanted to keep doing music in that vein. I wanted to start focusing on guitar/vocals instead of drums and had started doing more of an alternative rock thing with my new project Glower. I told Shane he could keep doing Hands on his own if he wanted but but opted to start a fresh project and let the Hands era end with the original members intact. He was very gracious about it. No bad blood or drama whatsoever. I couldn’t be more stoked for this new project of Shane’s and he’s been very supportive of my new endeavor as well. Rock and roll brothers till the day we die. Haha.
Josh, thanks for the insight! Hadn’t heard of Glower yet but just checked out your page and “Spectra” sounds awesome! Glad everything’s going so well. So psyched for new music from both projects!! :)
This is awesome!
Mostly boring with some decent spots.
I dig the album art.
I’m going to go out on a limb, and assume you’re not a Neurosis fan, either? ;)
Never really listened to them, so I can’t say.
With only two songs, I still think this is the best Facedown release of the year.
Pre-ordered. This is so incredible!!! Exosphere is chilling!
So STOKED on this!
I can’t stop listening to these 2 songs over and over.
This is amazing.
What will you do when IVM is retired this July?
