All those who voted for Handshakes and Highfives
to win Rock and Rumble back in November
are about to be totally happy. The poppy screamo band from Granbury just signed with Hollywood-based Nightmare Records
. The label is owned by Nick Moore from Before Their Eyes
and Joey Simmrin of One 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
