In anticipation of their brand new album -Anon‘s release on October 12th via UNFD, Hand Like Houses have announced some small, intimate shows up Australia’s East Coast where they’ll be playing a whole bunch of stuff from the new album, including their new single ‘Monster‘ which frontman Trenton Woodley explains is about the internal battle most of us fight with ourselves:
“The lyrics grew from the idea that every one of us has a part of ourselves that we hate – a monster that seems to come to the surface when we turn our backs for a moment. I wanted to bake in the fear, the panic, the self-doubt of bringing something to life, but also the confidence and swagger of accepting that you are both Jekyll and Hyde – and owning it. I scribbled down in my notepad ‘Yeah, I’m running from my problems and you probably should too’. Even though it wasn’t ever meant to be a lyric, it was the attitude that I wanted to carry through.”
The upcoming shows are a one-off experience for fans to get up-close and personal with the band, as they won’t be playing shows of this small size again in the near future. If you’re keen on the new album, pre-orders are open right here
