CRUEL HAND ANNOUNCES EAST COAST TOUR WITH TRAPPED UNDER ICE

Cruel Hand is excited to announce a three week long East Coast tour with Trapped Under Ice and Forfeit. The tour kicks off in Syracuse on New Years Day, and takes the band down the coast and back until the middle of January, serving as a perfect start to 2010.

Cruel Hand’s sophomore full-length, Prying Eyes, was released in October 2008, and grabbed the attention of the press with Punknews calling it a “straight-ahead powerhouse hardcore record complete with the usual trudging guitars, garbled vocals and drum beats that’ll shake up your speakers.” Complete with songs that not only get stuck in your head but “milled into your skull,” (Scenepointblank), Prying Eyes was easily one of the most well received yet hardest records of 2008.

Since the release of the debut full-length Prying Eyes last fall, the band has proven to the world that Cruel Hand is a relentless touring machine, and one of the tightest most powerful live bands in the hardcore world. “You’d swear they crawled outta the remnants of the Lower East Side. They bring the air-tight riffs and the monstrous breakdowns, and bring the floor-punchin’, windmillin’, black and blue kids out on the dance floor,” hails Beyond Race Magazine. After spending 2008/2009 on the road with the likes of H2O, Bane, Madball and Have Heart; and touring all over the US, Europe and Australia, the boys of Cruel Hand have no intention of slowing down anytime soon. Immediately following the Trapped Under Ice jaunt, Cruel Hand meets up with Bracewar and Mother Of Mercy and heads to the West coast for a two-week US tour. Dates are below.
