What is Super Secret Handshake? Ask any member of the Freemasons, and they won't tell you. But ask anybody in the town of Portsmouth, Rhode Island, and they will tell you that Super Secret Handshake is the music of angels.

Portsmouth is where Super Secret Handshake was created by Adam Wasilewski, guitarist and one of the two lead vocalists. Waz, as his friends call him, formed SSHS from the ashes of his old band Aggrobot, which featured some former members. The only major difference would be the one at the front of the band. Who would hold down the pipes for this group? Enter Brenna Sanches, lead vocalist and, as of recently, synth player for SSHS.

The original incarnation formed in late 2005 and started on the local circuit, developing a close following known as the Super Secret Fan Club. The band trucked along until came that summer '06. An entire summer passed without a peep from the members. No shows, no practice. Was this to be the end of Super Secret Handshake? According to Waz, "...No."

Without warning and with a fury, he erased the band and started anew, keeping only Brenna. Mostly making demos in his basement, he reached a point where he thought to close up the band entirely.

Then, ascending from the heavens, came three heroes, each breathing life back into the band. Dan Jordan, already a proven bassist having played alongside Waz in the power-metal band Angawen, stepped up for the musical goodfight once again. But who would handle the drums and guitar? Waz was stumped.

But in Pawtucket, RI, a good 45 minutes from Portsmouth, Gerry Narcisse and Tim Linhares grew tired of the scene that surrounded them and having to cope with the instability of their former band, Sixday Weekend. Through keeping contact with Waz from a show they shared earlier in 2006, they stepped up to the plate and made the drive for the fateful practice in the early Fall. It was there, in Waz's basement, that a magical event happened.

Through the first dry-run of the fan favorite, "Do It
Up Mr. Toothpaste", they knew something special was going on. The band came together with fervor and played as such, with confidence and the excellence of execution. It was there they practiced for the rest of that year and perfected the sound that would be driven into the hearts of those who listened.

This relatively young band plays with the synchronization and tightness of a veteran road band. With a sound that will grab you by the soul and make you get up and dance your butt off, they're looking to take their show on the road and get out to as many people as they can. This is Super Secret Handshake, now find out for yourself what they're all about.
