Yorkshire ska-punks RANDOM HAND have dropped another new single ahead of their forthcoming album. 

'Deadweight' is the third single to be released from their self-titled album which comes as the band embark on their 20th Anniversary tour.

“Some of you may have noticed that we've really got into having fun with Random Hand,” says bassist Joe Tilston. “While it's always had its moment, being in your 20th year, and on album number five sets you free in certain ways. I think our recent video output has really shown that. The video for 'Deadweight' is no different. Sean had a silly idea inspired by one of his favourite bands, so we borrowed a load of stuff from our friend’s shop called 'Amazing finds' in Bingley and got to messing about. Strangely Robin had the same idea I was going to ask him, when I showed him the first half of the video, so it wasn't hard work convincing him to be a disembodied head on a cushion!”


Random Hand is set for release through Bomber Music on 29 September and is available to pre-order here.

The band head out on tour on 27 Sept, taking in a London show on 30 Sept at Tufnell Park Dome, the latest increment in their Handfest mini-festivals, featuring a supporting cast of Popes Of Chilitown, The JB Conspiracy, Crazy Arm, Call Me Malcolm, Darko, Tree House Fire, Hell’s Ditch, Mr Shiraz, Roshambo, Traits and Till I’m Bones
