Handheld Return After 14 Year Hiatus

Canada-based skatepunk band Handheld is back after a 14-year hiatus with a new LP titled A Canadian Tragedy, due out June 14 on Canada’s Thousand Islands Records.

The first single “Bend The Iron” is out today.

In regards to the first single “Bend The Iron”, the band explains, “You’ve heard the story, bare minimum safety protocols, inadequate staffing, and corporate oversight leads to tragedy. Bend the iron tells the true tale of how the lack of attention caused one of the worst rail disasters in Canadian history, claiming the lives of over 45 residents and destroying a picturesque lake-side town in Quebec.”
