The Black Hands are a rootsy rock/blues outfit from Chesterfield UK, in the mould of Free, Cream and more recently Rival Sons and The Temperance Movement. Throw in some Deep South influences from yesteryear and you will start to picture where The Black Hands are coming from.

The band have actually been around since 2010 but have been ‘derailed by life’. A mixture of marriage, births and unfortunately bereavement all colluded at the wrong times to hinder the obvious talent on offer. Now they are back with a bang and ready to fulfil all the early promise that garnered much breakthrough recognition.

Singer, Andy Gannon said: “I don’t suppose we are the first band to have to endure life throwing things at you but now we are BACK before anyone has really heard of us! We can’t wait to get our music out there for people to hear – it’s been a long time coming and to say we are ready is an understatement.

That Ain’t The Way is our first song release in a while, all freshly recorded and mastered in our own studio. We are thrilled to let people hear it and needless to say we are going to be releasing a whole bunch more real soon. Can you see the smile on my face?”
