Gaffa Tape Sandy launch their debut album into the world, and not a moment too soon - the much loved punks bringing a visceral snarling collection simply chock full of melodies and electric pop bangers. Hold My Hand, God Damn It is a frustrated-yet-compassionate, cathartic celebration of friendship and reconciliation in difficult times.

Gaffa Tape Sandy wrote the new record Hold My Hand, God Damn It nervously together as the world slowly emerged from the first COVID-19 lockdown. The album writing process proved difficult, as a myriad of anxiety and personal relationship issues plagued the trio. The band was battling post-COVID mental health problems and employment issues, all while Catherine and Kim were trying to navigate recent breakups that coincided with their first UK headline tour in March 2020, just before the pandemic struck.

Thankfully, the band persisted, and adopted a more cooperative writing method that made the songwriting process for Hold My Hand, God Damn It a revitalising experience, rather than a debilitating challenge. Rehearsals that started out as somewhat difficult became more like bonding sessions, and the friendships within the band started to flourish. The theme of the album quickly materialised.

Recorded and produced by George Perks (Wargasm, Enter Shikari, Skindred) at the legendary Vada Studios in the countryside surrounding Birmingham, UK, the album was made by three friends with boundless love and affection towards one another, who pulled together and preserved their musical output and friendship, despite the odds. As such, Hold My Hand, God Damn It is a frustrated-yet-compassionate, cathartic celebration of friendship and reconciliation in difficult times.
