Hands Like Houses Announce Australian Headline Tour; Drop New Single "Drift"
Hands Like Houses have dropped their brand new single “Drift” and have announced they will be taking it out for a spin around the country. Returning home in October, the Drift Australian Tour will be Hands Like Houses biggest headline run to date.
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.”
Currently Stateside to play the mainstage at the Vans Warped Tour, their third appearance on the travelling summer festival, Hands Like Houses were last spied headlining at home on their wildly successful Colourblind Australian Tour in February this year. The tour was so popular that every single box office around the country had a sold out sign in the window before the boys touched down in each city, with their first Melbourne show selling out five months in advance! Due to incredible demand, more shows were added to the tour, even with Hands Like Houses taking a quick detour in the middle of it all to support Bring Me The Horizon on their arena tour of Australia.
Born and bred in Canberra, Hands Like Houses are one of most famous rock exports to come emerge from the nation’s capital. With over 100k record sales, 14 full US and eight UK tours on the books, Hands Like Houses have just experienced the most successful 18 months of their career. Their critically acclaimed third album Dissonants impressively debuted at #7 on the ARIA Chart and Top 10 Billboard Independent Albums, Hard Music Albums, Alternative Albums and Rock Albums. The band have also spent their time thrilling epic crowds at home on UNIFY 2016, The Equinox Tour and the listeners of triple j with their incredible cover of No Doubt's "Don't Speak" on Like A Version. Meanwhile, on the other side of the world, Hands Like Houses played sold out shows on their biggest UK and US headline runs ever, as well as played to tens of thousands of people on the Rock on the Range, Carolina Rebellion and Northern Invasion alongside legendary acts The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Deftones, Alice Cooper and Disturbed.
