Hammer No More the Fingers US/UK TOUR 03/31/2011
HNMtF's 'Black Shark' drops on April 5th, and the band will tour both sides of the Atlantic in its wake.

[...] It’s rare that a band can unify the visceral with the intellectual, but Hammer makes it look easy, as authoritative and aggressive as an underwater predator."
Black Shark Tour:
