Hands Of Time (HOT) is an Italian alternative rock band that debuted on the international music scene in 2009 with the release of their first LP by the German label STF Records (www.stf-records.de). The album has been distributed in Europe and Australia. In 2012/13, after a long European tour, the band went through a radical change in its music style after meeting one of the most important music producers in the rock ‘n roll panorama: Mr. Roy Thomas Baker (Queen, Guns n Roses, Ozzy, Bowie, Alice Cooper, Smashing Pumpkins and many others). Producing the project was Andrea Mescolini (Bonsai Studio Produzioni – www.bonsairecording.it) which led the band to release their second album worldwide, “Time To Think – pt 1″, in 2014.The “Time To Think Tour” started January 2015 and brought the band back on tour visiting Europe and the USA.

During the tour, HOT played on respected stages such as the “Whisky a Go Go”, the “100 Club”, “The Viper Room”, the “Alleycat”, and the “Rainbow”, here they met Sauro Ciccola, who later became the manager of the band. The Tour came to its epic conclusion on November 9th 2015 in Florence, where HOT opened for Marilyn Manson.

From the classic, genuine hard rock that marked the band since the beginning of its career, HOT moved its stylistic approach to a sound closer to indie and alternative rock, melting dance music, electro pop and rock ’n roll. The product presented is, no doubt, a true new proposal on the world’s music market, due to the freshness and genuineness which characterize it. Enjoy it! #timetothink
