Portland metal-friendly goth rockers Idle Hands have put out a new single featuring two songs that they wrote in late 2017, started recording in early 2018, and then abandoned for two years until finally finishing them earlier this year. Both are as driving and catchy and morose as you'd hope for from this band, and there's no lack of delightfully flashy riffage either.

They write:

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.

In early 2020 we 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
