We’ve been busy over the summer months and prepared a few gigs for your auditory pleasure this autumn. Further details are available on the shows page, but we’re kicking off in Brixton next month with Who Run The World. They are a new promotions company dedicated to showcasing female musicians and we’re delighted to be on their debut show at Veg Bar.
Set lists for these shows will include tracks from Kintsugi, Breathing and Deadroom Journal, as well as a hint at some new material. We’d love to see some familiar faces (and some new) and can’t wait to be back playing.
We have a couple of gig announcements for you! Our next outing is at the Hellfire Club in Redhill on March 7th, we’re playing alongside Stoneghost and Outright Resistance and it promises to be an excellent night. We’re on first so make sure you get down early if you want to catch our set. All kicks off about 8pm.
We are very delighted to announce that we are playing Foxrox this year up in Leicester, it is a two day prog / metal festival with some amazing bands on the bill… HeKz Amplifier Winter in Eden, Cloud Atlas, Phase and more! Not till July, but tickets are on sale now from wegottickets.com
We’d love to see you at these shows, the set for Foxrox is going to be special indeed!
Today is the day, Kintsugi is finally released!
So release day is finally here, wow what a ride this has been! Thank you for all your support, we hope that every one of you who pre-ordered is enjoying the album and T-shirts.
If you haven’t got a copy, there’s now several ways to get your hands (haha) on some lovely Kintsugi goodies. There’s Amazon, our official site handtheband.com (with T-shirts and vinyl too) and for those of you that like downloads head over to our Bandcamp page. (iTunes will follow in the coming weeks!)
We have a couple of live dates coming up in November –
Nov 22nd @ Sanctuary in Basingstoke, Hampshire
Nov 28th @ The Black Dog in Crawley, West Sussex
We’re looking forward to playing this loud 😀
More details can be found on our Shows page for the gigs. We’re working hard to secure some more gigs in the new year, if you would like us to play near you please let us know where you are in the world! Alternatively if there’s a cracking venue near you please request us (send them and us an email!).
Thank you once again, please enjoy Kintsugi!
We love you all.
Fresh from our gig at the weekend, we’d like to say a massive thank you to everyone who came down to support us and the great reception you all gave Kintsugi. It was really great to play live once again and to give the new material it’s first airing, as well as meeting you all!
Also thanks to Epsilon for the invite and the chance to play, they are a stellar band and bunch of guys. There is a lot of prog love between our two bands.

Lastly, it was brought to our attention that our online shop hasn’t been working as the checkout was broken. The issue has now been fixed and the shop is back up and running again. Sorry to anyone who has been trying to order from our site!
We hope you are well! If you haven’t been on our official site for a while handtheband.com – then now is the time. We’ve relaunched it with a brand new look and more info, it’s now easier than ever to get to our music, videos and merch.
As well as the new site, our music video for Level One is being premiered at Tokyo Demo Fest this weekend. It’s being released there first as even though it is our music video, it is also a very big project for the team behind it. We’re really excited about this and wish the guys all the best luck in the competition!
We’re hoping to bring you the completed video and track very soon, there’s just some very minor tweaking to be done before we release it to the world.
However, here is a new shot to whet your appetite 🙂

Finally we’d like to announce our first live date for our return to the gigging scene. We shall be playing in our home town of Horsham on May 23rd @ The Holbrook Club. Full details will follow shortly (and be available on all our social sites) but this will be the first time to hear a large part of Kintsugi live.
We hope you will be able to make it!
Have a great weekend,
