IDLE HANDS release new EP 'Don't Waste Your Time II'

Further proving their worth as one of metal's most trailblazing new acts.


Portland's goth-infused heavy metallers IDLE HANDS have expanded on 2017's Don't Waste Your Time EP with utter brilliance as the band have now released a new pairing of tracks, compiled on today's arrival of their Don't Waste Your Time II EP. The tracks, It Doesn't Really Matter & Puppy Love, were written during the making of the first EP and hold true to the band's hard-hitting sound.

IDLE HANDS frontman Gabriel Franco on the release:

"These songs were written in late 2017 in Portland, OR. The same time as the rest of the music that would end up on the “Don’t Waste Your Time” EP. Drum tracking was completed in early 2018, we were all ready to record.. ...and then they sat around for 2 years. We had some free time this year and were finally able to re-approach these songs. The core arrangement structures are the same as they were written in 2017, with original drum tracks and musicians (Gabe, Sebastian, Colin) on the recordings. We even managed to track at Falcon Studios again with our old friend and D.W.Y.T. engineer, producer, mixer Gabe Johnston for an as near uniform approach to this as we had for the original EP. The end result was Don’t Waste Your Time II - an expansion of the first release. Songs you should have heard 2 years ago."
