The Real Hands are a band out of San Marcos, Texas, led by David Russell on guitar and vocals, with Bryce Brown on guitar and vocals, John “Johnny Coco” McAlmon on bass and vocals and Nathan Glaiser on drums. The band formed in the spring of 2013 and take influence from Dr. Dog, the Beatles, the Beach Boys and Wilco.

They have one EP out on Bandcamp called Real It In. It was released on May 20th, 2014, and recorded with Adrien Waterman at Eastern Sun Studios.

Their next big plans are coming out with their first full length record this summer. It will be their most far out and most ambitious effort to date. They plan on touring once the record is ready and sending the album to labels to get it into as many hands as possible. They are playing a show at Cheatham Street Warehouse on April 22. Check it out before you see them at MR Fest.
