The Hand

The Hand was formed in 1999 when Darin Dodd (The Executioners, Knucklehead) and Scott Schmaljohn (State of Confusion, The Treepeople, Stuntman, The Treatment) returned home from Seattle to team up to create a loud, stripped down three piece rock unit. After many shows and a short tour with Built to Spill, The Hand turned to Andy A. of Project Seven Studio to lay down the tracks and give it the beef it needed to create “What doesn’t Kill You (Tries Again).” Scott says “We are super stoked about getting this disc out, and look forward to touring and playing to support the record.”

The Hand’s sound influences range from Black Sabbath to Black Flag, The Clash, The Ramones, Nirvana, The Who, and many more.
