Steady Hands To Release 'Brandy Of The Damned' via Lame-O RecordsJuly 30th, 2014 - Philadelphia, PA - Lame-O Records is excited to announce the new EP from Steady Hands, Brandy Of The Damned! The EP will be released online and in stores August 19th. Check out the first single off the EP "Pretty Good Year" on Property of Zack now!
What began as the folk troubadour solo project of Sean Huber, the drummer of Modern Baseball, has quickly turned into the 7-piece folk-punk powerhouse Steady Hands. Inspired by Billy Bragg, Bruce Springsteen, Frank Turner, and other classic punk influenced songwriters, Huber began thrashing his way through Philadelphia bars and basements in 2012. Fueled by his endless love of life on the road, Huber took strong advantage of his vacation time, winning over crowds and accruing a name for himself through his live show. With the simplicity and rawness of a sole honest voice and acoustic guitar Huber wears his heart on his sleeve and the gruff in his voice like a trophy.
Over the course of his first two years of existence, Huber has filled out Steady Hands' sound and lineup with a few of his talented friends. From electro-pop group W.C. Lindsay came William Lindsay on lead guitar, George Legatos on bass, and Richie Straub on drums. Also joining them were fellow Modern Baseball member Jacob Ewald on rhythm guitar and Andrew Kirnan on keys. With his latest EP Brandy Of The Damned, Steady Hands has found the perfect blend of polished rock and soulful punk, creating a string of songs just as pretty as they are gritty.
Copies of the EP will join Steady Hands on the road starting with their hometown show on August 13th, and pre-orders for the CD are available on Lame-O Records now! Click the link below to order, and make sure to catch the band on the road throughout all of August!

Quality song. Their last EP was great too. Pre-ordered and can't wait to hear the full EP.

One of my favorite side projects. Major later-era Bruce vibes in the new track and I'm digging.
