Beware Of Safety made the conscious choice to create instrumental music. To create sounds that words could not express. To leave out the vocal monologue that is without interpretation or insight, but instead, create music which traverses emotional and textural hollows that teeter between concealment and proclamation; between rapture and affliction; between conviction and deprivation; between opulence and destitution; between choice and coercion; between boldness and apathy.

Beware Of Safety calls the unspeakable from it's hiding place and imparts it to their listeners with gentle tact and deliberate action.

The inexpressible has found it's voice.

The band released their debut full length studio album, Sea of the Dying Dhow on June 18, 2007, in partnership with Undergroove records. The album attracted positive reviews from critics, culminating in it being named one of the top albums of 2007 by Rock Sound magazine.

The band toured the UK in June and July of the same year in support of the album, performing with various groups such as Bossk and The Ghost of a Thousand. The tour included a performance at GuilFest, where the band share a stage with My Vitriol and Zico Chain.

10. Give Me Rest

Shane Ochsner, Josh Silbernagel, and Chris Schwartz collectively are Hands, a band that combines circling atmospheric guitars punctuated with hard hitting progressions and a thundering rhythm section. They are a band in which rock and roll meets ambient hardcore and warm silvery singing rivals hardcore screams. Their songs are carefully crafted and layered with hope and strength, their evocative lyrics and emotional vocals leave Hands open-hearted to listeners. Ochsner's voice carries seamlessly from throaty growl to melodic yell and settles beautifully into sweet harmony as the songs progress.

Hands diverse musical pallet is exemplified in their ability to unfurl hugely anthemic post-rock ballads bearing the influence of Isis or Cult of Luna while at the same time laying out both solidly progressive hardcore tracks inspired by bands such as Life In Your Way and Misery Signals and even experimental alternative rock reflecting their love of bands like Jimmy Eat World, Hum and The Violet Burning.

Since forming in Fargo, North Dakota in 2007 Hands have desired to present a passionate and intense live show. Though they have pulled back from touring full time, those who are lucky enough to witness the band in a live setting experience a performance that is characterized by what drummer Josh Silbernagel calls "beautiful chaos."

After independently releasing their debut e.p. entitled "The Everlasting" and writing their epic concept album "The Sounds Of Earth" for the now defunct Lobster/Oort Records, Hands brought their progressive hardcore and post-rock stylings to Facedown Records for their critically acclaimed 2009 sophomore full-length entitled "Creator". After much touring in support of that record and a brief hiatus to catch their breath the band began work on their second Facedown Records release "Give Me Rest". This project finds the band at their most innovative and bringing forth their heaviest, most melodic and possibly their most creative work to date.
