With their long awaited third album, “Dissonants”, on Rise Records, due on February 26 the Australian alt-rock band Hands Like Houses hopes to hit the mainstream. “Fanning the Flames of anticipation,” the band has partnered with Billboard.com for their new video, Colourblind, which was released this past Friday. You can watch the video here.
Lead singer Trenton Woodley says, “”It feels damned good to get this one out – even more so, with such a sweet video by our dear friend Megan Thompson (of PBS NewsHour Weekend).” Woodley goes on to say, “Colourblind is about our cultural obsession with binary ideas – black and white, or politically left or right, for or against, right or wrong. We’re so caught up in black, white and the infinite shades of grey we forget that colour is in everything. Oh and yes, there is a ‘u’ in Colourblind.” We’re Australian.”
The band has teased its fans with two tracks from Dissonants over the past several months, with the tracks I Am and New Romantics . With the release of Colourblind, the band hopes to push the excitement to “unprecedented heights on a global scale.”
Dissonants was produced by James Paul Wisner (Paramore, Underoath), and features twelve massive rock-radio anthems. Fans can pre-order the album now at iTunes (with an instant download of “Colourblind”), Amazon.com, and http://handslikehouses.merchnow.com.
Hands Like Houses formed in Australia in 2008. They released their debut album in March 2012, and they were amongst the line up for the US Vans Warped in 2015. To support the new release, the band has embarked on a world headline tour, and will support A Day To Remember and The Amity Affliction to further the excitement. Hands Like Houses have been unstoppable thus far, and the new album is exactly what fans have been waiting for, and more.
