Weathered Hands are 5 friends from Hereford who play emotional hardcore. There are no gimmicks, elaborate stories or trends to hide behind. Weathered Hands are purveyors of raw, passion & righteous distress.
A band concerned with conveying stories which will consume the hearts & minds of their listeners as their forthcoming EP 'Of All The People That I've Left, Each One Has Died Of Loneliness' clearly displays. The record showcases a talent & creative power beyond their average age of 20. This release will establish Weathered Hands as one of the most enthralling new prospects on the bland hardcore landscape of the UK.
Growing & evolving at a frenetic pace, Weathered Hands already possess a discography to be proud of as 2012 saw the release of two EPs - 'End Of The Road' & 'Unison'. Out of the studio, Weathered Hands have been honing their live skills across the UK with such bands as The Catharsis, Black Shapes & The Cold Harbour. With the summer seeing the release of their new EP & a debut full length slated for early 2014, the 5 friends show no signs of slowing as a artistic force.
As the title of their forthcoming EP would suggest, Weathered Hands are not afraid to bare their scars & wear their hearts on their sleeves. 'Of All The People...' is the lovingly & delicately constructed tale of two lovers struggling with the torment of mental illness finding peace only in death. For a young band to show such personality & fearless desire to break away from their contemporaries is commendable. Where Weathered Hands find their strength is in their honesty. This is truthful. This is wholehearted. This is powerful. This is Weathered Hands & this is their time.

Weathered Hands - A Warm Life In The Cold
It's a great mixture of thriving rock, but with so many disonant hooks, it will make your head spin, this interesting blend of Defeater, Fugazi and Silent Majority will be that sort of album that will stick with you for a long time.
Polar - Shadowed By Vultures
Highly original rocking hardcore, blended with all sorts of delicious ingredients. It's not just the standard rock instruments, crunching guitars, screaming vocals and a pounding rhythm-section. All sorts of unexpected twists take this band into unexplored territories. They have truly boldy gone where no punkband has gone before.
24th Feb 2014 Weathered Hands get an amazing review in Rocksound Weathered Hands get an amazing 8/10 review in Rocksound for teir incredible debut album 'A Warm life In The Cold'
Making their name as one of the most ambitious and expressive bands in UK hardcore, Weathered Hands aren't accustomed to holding back. True to form 'A Warm Life In The Cold' is both vital and confessional, laced with equal parts melody and ferocity, and driven by John James Davies' cathartic vocal contributions. Avoiding unnecessary studio polish (a common pitfall on debut albums), Hereford's finest have refined their sound, taking a foot off the accelerator just often enough to avoid burnout. These songs can prove overwhelming, emotionally as much as musically, but listeners willing to engage will be amply rewarded. 8/10
