MUSIC NEWS: Random Hand Celebrate 20th Anniversary With New Self-Titled Ablum

Twenty years in, and top of their game, West Yorkshire, Keighley-bred ska punk icons Random Hand are coming in hot with their fifth album! Their bodies may be creaking with grey hairs beginning to show, but the vitality and relevance of their music isn’t changing one bit. Refined and confident, the band’s new album, due September 29th via Bomber Music, is set to redefine their place as one of the UK’s most significant and dependable punk bands.

The first taste of these new recordings comes with Lifejackets, an infectiously joyous body shakin’ tune that, like much of Random Hand’s music, masks a serious and weighty message.   

Bassist Joe Tilston explains:

“It’s a song about the gap between us and those at the top. For the video we played out in a retro encounter with a tyrannical salesman, who ruins everyone’s day. We descended on one of the empty shops, that litter Keighley’s Highstreet. Closed like a time capsule from the 2008 financial crash, it served as the perfect location for our throwback adventure. It was colder in there than the nice sunny day outside, but we were all dressed like cretins so we stayed in and shivered. But we knew we were onto something special with the talented people we were working with, getting the best out of us.”
