Bulldozing their way through those winter blues, Last Hounds release their brand new single ‘Handmade’ today. The five piece, Midlands based Hardcore band, meld influences that combine the fearless energy of Gallows, the earworm style songwriting of letlive. with the swagger of Frank Carter and The Rattlesnakes.
Single ‘Handmade’ perfectly epitomises the DIY aesthetic of Hardcore whilst illustrating the grimness of reality culminating in fantastic songwriting to deliver hooks bigger than those seen on Treasure Island. Directed, shot and edited by Morgan Tedd the video for ‘Handmade’ reminds us of the grit and harsh reality of what it means to be a part of the UK in 2020 whilst being able to rejoice in the community that is Hardcore.
Singer Mike Skelcher concisely sums up the video “It defines what we are as a band. Its raw energetic and it hits hard.”

Previously Last Hounds have released two EP’s, their 2016 self titled debut and 2017’s ‘Old Dreams’ of which singles ‘DOA’ and ‘Lay Me Down’ garnered radio support from Kerrang!’s own Alex Baker. Now, Last Hounds have begun their next creative leap and are currently writing their debut full length album, set for a Summer 2020 release.
Established in 2013 Last Hounds have slowly but surely been honing their songwriting craft to deliver their brand new single ‘Handmade’. Touring the UK extensively throughout this time, having supported Bullets & Octane and Skindred has allowed the band to build a truly loyal fan base throughout the country.
In support of the brand new single and upcoming album the band will be heading out on a small UK tour in March where you’ll be able to experience the true energy of the band in a live setting. Pick up tickets here!
