THE VELVET HANDS to release their third single, ‘Only Blame Myself’

The Velvet HandsThe Velvet Hands release their third single, ‘Only Blame Myself’ on 26th Jan 2018, via Easy Action Records and across all digital formats.

The Velvet Hands are the latest band to emerge from Cornwall’s blistering garage-rock (‘Kernow Wave’ – NME) scene. The ambitious, Stones x Strokes tinged quartet formed in 2015 at Truro College (and are still in their teens) and already have released a string of standout DIY singles. The Velvet Hands blistering live sets, with two frontmen Dan Able and Toby Mitchell wrestling for the mic, have seen them booked for a run of big name gigs including headline shows for BBC Introducing at Boardmaster Festival and stand out gigs at The 100 Club and The Water Rats.  ‘Only Blame Myself’ follows their #RSD2017 release ‘Sick Of Living’ and the strident, ‘Games’. ‘Only Blame Myself’ is the third single taken from their debut album, Party’s Over slated for release April 2018.

‘Only Blame Myself’ was recorded at Troubadour Studios, Falmouth and produced by Ben Woods (ex -Lost Dawn/The Golden Dregs). New single ‘Only Blame Myself’ is filled to the brim with charisma and swagger that the band effortlessly exude.  Garage-y, punky and punchy, the new single is another boisterous offering reminiscent of the best of early 2000s guitar bands and a rousing hurrah to the revival of indie guitar music as a force to be reckoned with. Recently, the band supported Paves on their single launch at Camden Monarch that was live streamed by Pirate Studios and notched up over 3k views. The Velvet Hands are Toby Mitchell, Dan Able, and Sam Hilder.
