Yorkshire punk/ska/metal quartet Random Hand have announced that they will be hitting the road for one final time.

On announcing an extended break from being a band, Random Hand launched a Pledge Music campaign to help fund the final album - it was smashed in under 6 hours thanks to the band's faithful fanbase. It currently sits at 208% of target.

The new album will be released through Bomber Music on September 14th 2015.

"We're wanting to give all the classics one last hurrah, before we go on an extended break. The new album we're writing is a hard hitting punk rock album, and we can't wait for everyone to hear it. It's a real shame though that we're writing something that we're not going to tour though. The new record is going to be released the day after the last gig, as a parting gift", said bassist Joe Tilston.

Catch Random Hand in Leeds for the last time when they play at Brudenell Social Club on 4th September.
