To have the endurance to remain a collective creative force after 2020’s global pandemic is an understatement! Savage Hands, a hard rock group hailing from the Maryland/Virginia area are still striving to have their voice heard.
The band has now returned with a new found outlook on life and its experiences, bringing us the new collection of songs titled Rock Bottom. Vocalist Michael Garrow states “ When people read the word “rock bottom” they typically associate it with something that’s super negative. In this sense we’re using it as if it’s just where we come from. We come from a low point in the industry, as everyone else does… and we want to make it known that we’re proud of where we came from and we love the grind. It takes a lot to be a musician these days and we’re proud of the things we had to do and will continue to do to keep getting our music into new ears. It’s celebrating the small victories and respecting the long game.”
Having their full tour be canceled midway through in 2020 was devastating for Savage Hands, but they took that as a sign to dig deeper into musical inspirations. They went straight to the studio to begin recording this new EP. These new 5 tracks are a moment in time for Savage Hands.
“Angel Dust is just about going for something in life, no matter what kind of hurt you go through in the process. We’ve all worked a job, dated a significant other or been involved in some type of scenario that probably weighs down on our mental health or physical health. This song mainly is a representation of a sort of “lust” we feel trying to achieve greatness from whatever it is we desire. Not giving in to the “red flags” and pushing through them as if the end goal is going to change the outcome”. – Mike Garrow/Savage Hands
