Northern Rivers / South East QLD band Hammers have just announced that their debut EP ‘Homeblokes’ will be released on 22 June, and to celebrate they have just today unleashed a new single and video.
Following on from the release of their single ‘Dead Set’ (which was nominated for Video of the Year at the 2018 Gold Coast Music Awards), the boys are back with the new clip for ‘Speak of the Devil’, once again shot and directed by Colin Jeffs.
The video sees the band pitted against the lord of darkness himself, as he seems hell-bent on ruining their day. The new record ‘Homeblokes’, which was mixed and mastered by Forrester Savell (Karnivool, Dead Letter Circus, Cog), is the first release of music from the band since establishing a new lineup in 2017.
Taking influences from a diverse range of styles – Stoner Rock, Metal, Blues, and blended with the anecdotal lyrical style of country, then spat in your face with the attitude of punk, Hammers are a band not easily pigeonholed into one genre.
Hammers are launching the single ‘Speak of the Devil’ on Sat 12 May at The Bearded Lady in Brisbane with Captives + The Quarters + Tai Sui. Hammers will also perform at Dead of Winter Festival, Sat 7 July at Jubilee Hotel and The Tivoli. Homeblokes pre-orders go live on 18 May with the release set for 22 June 22 via Summerland Records.
