Oklahoma-based metalcore quintet, 2X4, is preparing for the release of second album "Dark Hand," which hits shelves this Tuesday, July 30th. The new album is streaming in its entirety today via Lambgoat.com. Check out the album below.
When asked about what went into creating the new album, vocalist Micah Hutson explained: “Dark Hand to me is totally different then anything we've ever put out. We still write heavy music but musically, we had more talent in the writing and recording process with the addition of Eric, Matt, and Jayson. Lyrically, I wanted to write a little differently than I had on Dead Days. To do this, I had to change my entire thought process.
"During the writing and recording of Dead Days, I had a lot of crap going on in my life that caused me to view and deal with everything with negativity and hate. Things turned around shortly before I began writing. Consequently, Dark Hand is written about is riding your life of hate, making those changes, and how it brings forth more positivity. Dark Hand is my personal story of changing for the better and the struggles that came while making that change.” More...
