Easy come, easy go.
…or in this case, is it easy go, easy come? We will be in RI on 3/15 after all, Thanks to the fine folk over at 1150 Oak Bar & Grill, we were just added to their show with Tantric.
Unfortunately, those of you waiting for our return to RI are going to have to wait a little longer. Due to a scheduling conflict with the club, our March 15th date has been cancelled. Sometimes things are just out of our control. We are, however, working on a new date and will share it with you as soon as we have it confirmed.
Last night was a fantastic evening…and it’s all made possible because of your incredible support. Thanks to the wonderful staff at bergenPAC and the crew in 3 Doors Down & 105.5 WDHA. Most of all, as always, it’s a pleasure and honor meeting so many avid music fans. THANK YOU!!! See you again soon.
It’s been a little while since we’ve been back to Providence. This coming March, we’re headed back to DUSK – Saturday night, March 15th, 2014 to be exact. And we’re bringing our Jersey friends, OneHundredThousand with us.
With all the acoustic ditties we’ve been offering ya, it’s only right that we do a little acoustic performance, wouldn’t you agree? Next month, we’re headed back to the bergenPAC to open the evening for 3 Doors Down, who will also be performing acoustic.

As the saying goes, “it’s been a long time since I’ve rock n rolled”. After some time away from the live circuit, we’re ready to rock out again and can’t wait to get back to Mexicali Live in Teaneck, NJ for an awesome rock show. Hope to see you there.
A special post for our Kickstarter supporters…
Hey all, Rob here.
It’s been a little while since we’ve posted here. As we wind down the year, I wanted to take the opportunity to thank you all for sending us out on the road this Summer. It was a memorable experience and we met some incredible people.
By now, most of you have received your Kickstarter packages that you signed up for. However, a few, including the covers EP, is still in process. Without going into full detail, I’d like to apologize on behalf of DFH for the delay. I’ve had a rough go at it on the personal front which has slowed down production in the studio. I’d rather keep it at that, but assure you that we are working hard to complete the songs and expect them to be in your hands and ears in early 2014. Also, on the horizon are some new songs, new shows and more. I never wanted this delay to be a sign of lack of appreciation. I hope it hasn’t come off as such.
In the meantime, let me tell you a little about the very first song that Matt and I ever wrote – a song called “Guilt”. Back in the early days of writing what would become Dead Fish Handshake’s debut EP, we had about 10 song ideas floating around, six of which eventually got narrowed down for inclusion on “Across State Lines”. “Guilt” was one of my favorites – a sure shot to make the record or so it seemed, but we couldn’t decide between this originally stripped down, intimate recording or a full blown electric version. In the end, others came together and found their way onto “Across State Lines”, leaving no room for “Guilt” or the other few that were in contention. We’re very happy to be able to share this with you.
As part of this Kickstarter, we want to say thank you and offer a glimpse of the early days. I can still remember being in the room on a cold December afternoon watching and hearing this song come to life in a matter of moments. We hope you enjoy this.
