(SAN FRANCISCO, CA) – 10.30.18 – Bay Area metal outfit Hatchets For Hands have announced a 11/2 release and reveals artwork for their new single “Bad Men”. The duo continues to deliver their ferocius brand of melodic death metal on the heels of their 2018 debut album ‘Convulsions Of A Dying Empire’.

Hatchets For Hands “Bad Men” ArtworkSan Francisco based heavy metal group Hatchets For Hands is back at it with the impending release of their newest track “Bad Men”, which is slated for release this Friday (11/2). Revolver Magazine, the voice of extreme rock and metal, will be premiering the track later this week prior to it’s release. The song was self-produced by Hatchets in San Francisco and once again mastered by Howie Weinberg (Pantera, Nirvana).

In late Spring Hatchets released their debut album, ‘Convulsions of a Dying Empire’ which solidified the band’s presence in the metal world and capped off a series of singles the band released starting in 2017. Although listeners will hear a wall of sound in Hatchets’ massive studio productions, the group is simply composed of two longtime friends, Cullen Poythress (Drums, Vocals) and Brian Parks (Guitars, Bass). The project has taken on a life of its own, and has even garnered impressive media attention from Metal Injection, Decibel, Tattoo and more.

Hatchets has also unveiled official artwork for “Bad Men” and a new press photo, both coming courtesy of Hatchets’ co-founder Brian Parks. Get the latest updates at

About Hatchets For Hands:

Formed in a makeshift studio in the heart of San Francisco’s Tenderloin District, Hatchets For Hands is the studio project of musician producers Brian Parks and Cullen Poythress. Driven by a mutual obsession for authentic musicianship and heavy metal, the band takes cues from many styles within the genre—nodding elements of early American thrash, grind, and traditional death to the soaring leads and infectious melodies akin to Northern Europe’s melodic death metal exports. Hatchets For Hands released their debut album ‘Convulsions of a Dying Empire’ in May and will be releasing their new single “Bad Men” on November 2, 2018.
