Hands up who wants to Die are four messers who got together in late 2008 to make music that would capture the zeitgeist and inner city pressures of the crumbling society that surrounded them in the Dublin, Ireland. Their songs have been described as “off-kilter noise rock”, and as “socially aware slab punk with constant discordant meanderings” among other things. Roy left and Matt Joined, sensetown united.


Hands Up Who Wants To Die are putting on a gig to raise some funds for their third record. After having two releases on the legendary RICHTER COLLECTIVE label, the Dublin quartet are now fending for themselves in the big scary world of MUSIC.

After touring SOME OF MAINLAND EUROPE in April of this year the leviathanic ensemble returned to Dublin – their spiritual and actual home – with one devastating intention in mind; to finish writing tunes and get them ‘down on tape’, so to speak.

With only two previous BLISTERING live performances in Dublin this short year of nearly seven months, we can honestly say, with no hyperbole whatsoever, that this will be a million times better than any gig that has ever happened!

Hands Up Who Wants to Die’s events division have got a tasty and ECLECTIC lineup together so this can only equal to one enduring sentiment = it would be loves if you came along.
