Taking on the music industry with their own unique sound, Australian rock band Hands Like Houses has spent the last 3 years bringing their powerful, high-energy brand of music and live shows to an increasing fan base across Australia, the US, Europe and the UK.
Emerging from school-based friendships as the boys grew up together in Canberra, Australia, Hands Like Houses officially formed in 2008. Catching the eye of US independent label Rise Records, the band was quickly signed and released their long anticipated debut album ‘Ground Dweller’ in March, 2012.
Their distinctive style launched them onto the Billboard Heatseekers chart at number 2, and number 141 on the Billboard Top 200, garnering widespread acclaim and legions of devoted followers. Since then, Hands Like Houses have been hitting the road hard. They’ve crossed the US several times over, trekked across Europe, Canada, and the UK, as well as touring on their home soil back in Australia - and the road has only been getting bigger and better. In 2013 their second album Unimagine debuted at number 37 on the overall billboard charts, number 6 on the Indie charts, and number 3 of the Hard Rock charts where the band took their well-deserved place alongside classic icons such as Black Sabbath and new age superstar Taylor Swift.
Hands Like Houses jumped on full US and UK/Europe tours to support hot commodities such as Pierce the Veil and Sleeping With Sirens, as well as playing the entire US and Australian 2013 Vans Warped Tours - and 2014 is proving they have no intention of slowing down. So far they've continued traveling coast to coast in the US, UK and Europe, delivering strings of sold-out shows all around the world as they headline and play alongside some of the other great names in music, and they’re not finished yet. The remainder of 2015 will see Hands Like Houses taking their high-impact music and live shows to the UK for Download Festival and then back to the United States for the Vans Warped Tour before releasing their third full length studio album.
