Handshakes and Highfives Sign with Nightmare Records
All those who voted forHandshakes and Highfives
to winRock and Rumble back in November
are about to be totally happy. The poppy screamo band from Granbury just signed with Hollywood-basedNightmare Records
. The label is owned by Nick Moore fromBefore Their Eyes
and Joey Simmrin ofOne Moment Management
. No details just yet as to when Handshakes and Highfives will be recording a new album for the label, but now their EP has national distribution including being available in all Hot Topic stores. The band say it should have a Hot Topic exclusive t-shirt coming shortly, too.
If you're itching to congratulate the band members, they'll be playing 8 p.m. tonight at Plano's Rocksteady with Scene and Siren and Hi Im Polaroid. Tickets cost $10. -- Chelsea Ide
