Australian rock band Hands Like Houses has announced a headlining world tour in support of their upcoming, third studio album, ‘Dissonants’, which will be released this Autumn on Rise Records. The tour will kick off in Australia on Oct 9th, followed by a U.S. run Oct 23rd-Nov 27 and UK dates Nov 30th-Dec 11th. Support comes from I The Mighty for UK shows.
“We are unbelievably excited to announce our very first world tour!,” says singer Trenton Woodley. “We’re hitting the roads and skies in support of our brand new album ‘Dissonants’ this October-December in Australia, the US and UK.”
Details of the new album will be announced in the coming weeks, but the band has revealed today that they teamed up again with producer James Paul Wisner (Paramore, Underoath) who helped the band record their 2013 breakout album Unimagine.
Hands Like Houses has amassed a legion of devoted fans around the world over nearly a decade as a band. They’ve shared the stage with everyone from Pierce The Veil and Sleeping With Sirens to Tonight Alive and Memphis May Fire to name a few. The five-piece, consisting of Woodley, Matt Cooper (guitar), Alex Pearson (guitar), Joel Tyrrell (bass) and Matt Parkitny (drums), has headlined tours in four different continents during 2014, including a US run that sold out nearly all dates. The upcoming tour is expected to be even bigger.
The band’s 2013 record Unimagine debuted at #37 on Billboard’s Top 200 chart and was followed with massive acclaim and worldwide notoriety that lead to a triumphant tour on this summer’s Vans Warped Tour and unprecedented anticipation for the band’s followup album ‘Dissonants’. After their last London show sold out in under 30 minutes, this a tour not to be missed.
