Delaware metalcore band Foreign Hands have had an amazing year, with both the Bleed The Dream EP on DAZE and the two-song Lucid Noise single on SharpTone (both of which cracked our list of the 50 best punk releases of 2022), and endless touring. To cap off 2022, the band's five members--vocalist Tyler Norris, guitarists Jack Beatson and Gill Gonzalez, bassist Chuck Minix, and drummer Tyler Washington--shared with us a list of each of their favorite releases of 2022. There's plenty of hardcore and hardcore-adjacent stuff on the lists (Vein.fm, Life's Question, Fleshwater, High Vis, Static Dress, Vatican, New World Man, Conservative Military Image, Gridiron, etc), as well as other stuff ranging from Pusha T to SZA to The 1975 to Charley Crockett. Read on for the full list.

Sadly, Gill had to pull out of Foreign Hands' remaining tour dates last week after coming down with sudden illness. He and the band are currently raising funds to cover hospital bills.
