Formed in 2015, Knife Hands exploded onto the scene with a bright blend of progressive, pop soaked melodies and razor sharp guitar work. A sound that was carved into their opening short-form release (The Doomsday Book, 2016) and spilled across the nations club stages in a riotous sing along inducing energy unique to them.
With the release of their debut LP Milestones on November 26th the band is set to bring their live show to Tasmanian audiences taking in Launceston and Hobart to celebrate the release.

December 11th sees the five piece land at the Royal Oak in Launceston with support from heavy pop punk princes Offset Vision and Aussie grunge lords Drenched.

While on December 17th they’ll be supported by Hardcore kids Threats, metalcore kings The Absolution Sequence and garage thrash pigs Stiff Mental Uppercut.
