Cut Off Your Hands Profile

Cut Off Your Hands are known for their brand of high-energy post-punk. Relentless touring saw them clock up countless frequent flyer miles and tear up stages alongside a who’s who of indie rock bands worldwide.

The departure of vocalist Djeisan Suskov from Auckland band Nova Echo led the remaining members to form The Shaky Hands.
