Chalk Hands: Fail, Grasp, Restore

Rising Brighton, UK post hardcore band, Chalk Hands, return with Fail, Grasp, Restore, the first single off their debut album, Don't Think About Death, recorded by Lewis Johns at the Ranch Production House (Rolo Tomassi, Employed To Serve, Cassus), and coming out on March 18th, 2022 through Dog Knights Productions.

Once again, the band's sound maintains a deft and exciting balance between post rock, hardcore and emo elements by way of gripping compositional structure, and immense sentimentality. Comparisons to genre spearheads such as Touché Amoré are fair, but do not define Chalk Hands' artistry in absolute terms. 

The band describe: "Fail, Grasp, Restore is a song about forever questioning yourself, assessing where you're at, and imagining how your current actions could paint your future. 

"It's hard to have pure confidence in the choices you make. There may be days in which you feel sure of yourself, but then there are always going to be days where you can't help but battle with doubt. The song, in short, asks if you feel you have made the most out of your time, with the one body you are given. You learn to live with the scars made from bad choices and you carry your achievements everywhere you go. You take all of this forward and it will inevitably take part in who you will become, so who will you become?

"Ultimately Fail, Grasp, Restore is a song about acceptance, the desire to be at peace with who you are and about learning to deal with your past in the healthiest way you can, allowing it to improve your future."

Fail, Grasp, Restore comes with a good looking video created by Doug Elliott.
