Sioux Falls, the 167th largest city in the nation, is the commuting center for the nine members that make up We All Have Hooks For Hands.
Originally starting in a downtown Sioux Falls apartment as a simple project to create happy pop tunes, "Hold on, c'mon" was recorded first with minimal members without a name for the project. A six piece first set off for a short west coast tour screaming through the mountains in a green tin lizzy.
After growing from the experience, a full-length album was put into production. A self-built/self-taught recording studio resulted in the addition of multiple amiable pals hailing from as far as Freeman, SD, home of the Mennonites. The result is a full band with a radiant sound, which includes dueling drummers, a violinist, three guitars, two horn/keyboard players, and a lonely bass.
The size of band and collective feel is a means to experiment with sound and dynamics. The influences that shaped the upcoming album are as colorful as they were plentiful. The party lifestyle in a rural city fuels the music.
"We love everyone and the party's at our place."
