We are delighted to be adding another local act to the Rose Coloured Record's roster with a full album release next month.
Guildford’s post–hardcore / alt rock five piece Hanshotfirst have been gaining a reputation for awesome live shows and have already released a number of very well-received singles and praise from the likes of Kerrang!
The band played our SummerFest gig in June last year, stepping up to headline at the last minute and proving very worthy of the slot with a rousing show to a packed and sweaty crowd. Having also appeared on two of our Doorstep compilation records and then coming back for their second Rose Coloured Presents show earlier this year supporting Amaryllis, they have become a firm favourite of ours and shown they have the talent and determination to take themselves to the next level. We are really pleased to play a small part in helping them achieve that.
With the release of a new single and video yesterday, showing a completely new side to the band, they have raised expectations ahead of their debut album release.
‘For Those We Have Loved and Lost’ will be released on Rose Coloured Records on the 22nd August and we have worked with the band to pull together an awesome bill for the record launch show. Get Saturday 22nd at The Boileroom, Guildford in your diary now! Supporting Hanshotfirst will be Best of Enemies, Chasing Cadence, Cardinal Bay and more to be announced!
