Dead Man's Hand

Air Date: 05-04-16

Dead Man's Hand is a hard rock band formed in Seattle in 2012 with lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist Kasey McGrew (formerly of eaventil and Fourth and Forever) and Lead guitarist and backing vocalist Bret Palmer (Sevil and Below Blackstar). After spending some time in Seattle they came to the conclusion that the Seattle music scene was not for them and moved to Kansas City in search of a scene that better suited their style. There they picked up former Sevil and Guided by Walls guitarist Jeff Kent and drummer James Aguiar and began playing shows all over Kansas City including opening slots for HURT, PopEvil, and The Dreaming. In 2013 they released their first demo, "Til Karma Forgets," that includes five original songs which has gained positive reviews and been featured on local radio shows. Dead Man's Hand has described themselves as having an energetic live show with songs featuring catchy hooks as well as hard, driving rhythms, soaring, original guitar solos, and passionate vocals. "We are just four guys from humble backgrounds looking to carve our place in the world of honest, to the point hard rock".
