The HandMe Downs "are armed with three chords and the truth with finger pistols aimed at Lars Frederiksen and Joe Strummer" (Metro Times Detroit) - Metro Times Detroit


vocalist Cuddy, bass player Ferbus, guitarist Bob and drummer Roberto meshed together through their love of '90s streetpunk. “We’re influenced by many bands, obviously bands like Rancid, Operation Ivy and the '90s West coast punk scene,” Cuddy says. “Recently, we have been influenced by a few East coast bands like the Bouncing Souls, Street Dogs and the Dropkick Murphys.”

The band’s new record, I Think It’s About Time, will be hitting merch tables in the extremely near future, but in the mean- time check out the band when they play Smalls on Feb. 22 with the Koffin Kats. - Real Detroit Magazine

Bio

Since their inception in 2006 The HandMe Downs have been one of the busiest bands in Detroit touring, writing, recording and blazing a trail of adrenaline filled live shows across the U.S. While supporting such bands as The Misfits, US Bombs, The Casualties, Time Again, The Queers, Flatfoot 56, and The Koffin Kats.

Members Cuddy (vocals) Bob (Guitarist/Vocals) Eric Scicluna (bass) and Aggro Eddie (drums) have spent their whole existence as a band doing everything but slowing down with a new 12 song melodic street punk full length out in july and a plethora of touring in the near future.

With most of their time out on the road most of their new album "I Think Its About Time..." was written in vans, back rooms, and random strangers houses along the way. Into the studio they went with new stories and experiences recording with long time friend Rian Pennanen from greenhouse studios.

The debut album is packed with fist-pumping sing along punk in the vein of Rancid and The Bouncing Souls, with a bass driven power chord frenzy recalling the mid 90's punk revival. The albums title comes from the song "My Mind" which has become a crowd favorite to hop on stage and commandeer the mic.

While most bands stay put in one town The HandMe Downs are out to win the hearts of punk rock fans everywhere who feel their sound is gone.
