Steady Hands & Soft Center releasing LPs, playing NYC together (listen)
While Modern Baseball remain on hiatus and Jake Ewald and Ian Farmer stay busy with Slaughter Beach Dog, drummer/sometimes singer Sean Huber is dedicating more time to his Steady Hands project, whose proper debut album Truth In Comedy comes out October 19 via Lame-O Records (pre-order physical or digital). Sean started Steady Hands as somewhat of a solo project, but it's morphed into much more. "Since the very beginning, Steady Hands has been more of a social club, a collective, and a collaborative effort than a solo project," he said. "The most important thing was always the positive experiences we could create with the gifts we had, and I wanted to include as many people in that as possible." The core current lineup has Sean joined by William Lindsay, George Legatos, Andrew Kirnan and Richard Straub.
Having recently released lead single "Indifferent Belushi," we're now premiering second single "Saint Lucas." This one sorta sounds like a cross between Modern Baseball and The Menzingers, and it's got a super catchy chorus that you can already picture a crowd of kids yelling along to. Check it out below.
Steady Hands are celebrating the album a week after it comes out with a release show at Brooklyn's Sunnyvale on October 26 (tickets). Opening that show is NY/NJ indie rockers Soft Center, who are releasing their debut album No Pattern the same day Steady Hands' album comes out (pre-order). We've also got the premiere of a new song from that album, "Remember To Vote." It's a nostalgic-sounding dose of surfy pop, but as the title implies, it's about heavier topics than the lighthearted-sounding song might make you think. Listen to that below as well.
