The Black Hand Debut New Video ("Disappear"); Self-Titled Debut LP On September 15, 2017


New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Southern California five-piece The Black Hand are premiering their new video "Disappear"on No Echo.
The track appears on the band's self-titled debut LP, out on September 15.

Frontman Chris Hughes tells No Echo, "The concept behind this video is based on my relationship with my ex-wife, there was so much back and forth love and hate in our relationship and it was torture. We had decided to divorce while I was in the studio writing that song. The lyrics changed from the topic of trying to work it out to the 'people never change' mantra. There was alcohol and substance abuse, vindictive actions on both sides and consistent lies. It made me feel crazy. I didn't know my ass from my elbow. I'm not perfect. I played my part in fucking that shit up, we were young and made all kinds of life mistakes and I think we both learned a lot."

Esteemed engineer and producer Chris Rakestraw (Megadeth, Danzig, Motörhead) worked closely with the band on the overall production and engineering of the record.

The Black Hand pre-order is now up with two singles ("Where Are You Now" and "The American Pastime") available to stream and download everywhere.

The Black hand will celebrate the release of the new album with a show at LA's The Viper Room on September 15.

Hughes, a former pro BMX rider with Dave Mirra's namesake Mirraco team, turned to music after a poorly constructed mega-ramp nearly took his life during a competition in France. Hughes was hospitalized with damage to his lung and pancreas, and the time spent recovering afforded him the opportunity to reconsider his future path in life. That was the end of his pro BMX career, and the beginning of Hughes' journey as a musician.

"Once riding becomes your job, after a while it just starts to wear on your brain, because you know that potentially you're going to get seriously hurt," explains Hughes. "Then it happened—I got hurt really, really bad—so I started thinking, 'Well, I can continue to do this and be left with nothing at an older age, or I could pursue music, my other true passion. That's where it really began."

Hughes soon gathered a group of like-minded players, which grew and morphed into the current The Black Hand lineup: In addition to Hughes on vocals, the group also includes guitarist Mayauel Garavito, drummer Rob McDonald, bassist Allix Johnson and keyboardist/supporting vocalist Jeremy Grasso.

Since that time, the band has been honing its live show into an adrenaline-inducing sonic assault, focusing primarily on performances in the Southern California area, while working out of their studio HQ in Santa Ana, Calif.
