Australian rock band Hands Like Houses are proud to announce a worldwide headline tour in support of their upcoming and third studio album, Dissonants, which will be released this spring through Rise Records. The tour will kick off in Australia on Oct 9th, followed by a U.S. run Oct 23rd-Nov 27, and UK dates Nov 30th-Dec 11th.
“We are unbelievably excited to announce our very first world tour! We’re hitting the roads and skies in support of our brand new album Dissonants this October-December in Australia, the US and UK. Even better, we’re dragging a whole bunch of friends, old and new, along for the ride!” says frontman, Trenton Woodley. Joining Hands Like Houses on the Australian leg of the tour as main support is UK rock band, Lower Than Atlantis, and openers Far Away Stables.
As details of the new album are revealed in the coming weeks, the band has confirmed that they have teamed up again with producer, James Paul Wisner (Paramore, Underoath) who helped the band record their 2013 breakthrough album, Unimagine.
Hands Like Houses has amassed a legion of devoted fans around the world over nearly a decade as a band. They have shared the stage with the likes of Silverstein, Pierce The Veil, Enter Shikari, Tonight Alive and plenty more. The five-piece, consisting of Woodley, Matt Cooper (guitar), Alex Pearson (guitar), Joel Tyrrell (bass) and Matt Parkitny (drums), has headlined tours in four different continents during 2014, including an Australian, US and UK run that sold out most dates. Their upcoming world tour is set to raise the bar.
The band’s 2013 record Unimagine debuted at #37 on Billboard’s Top 200 chart and was followed with massive acclaim and worldwide notoriety that has lead to unprecedented anticipation for their follow up album, Dissonants due out later this year.
