With a newly-rejuvenated line-up and their signature sound intact, San Francisco's Hammers Of Misfortune have returned with 17th Street, a brash and heartfelt song cycle, blending the best elements of NWOBHM, Thrash, Doom, and American Folk music while somehow sounding unlike any of these. 17th Street takes the band's inimitable sound to a new level, creating an emotional gravity that only further accentuates the band's formidable songwriting chops.

17th Street is set to be released on October 25th through Metal Blade Records.

Guitarist and producer John Cobbett (Ludicra, Slough Feg) says: "I can see how someone could find it an upbeat record. There are glimmers of hope there. But if you listen carefully to each song, you'll find that each one has its own point of view; you might find hope, or something very different, very dark."

You can now hear the first single, The Grain, which has been made into a lyric video, available in the YouTube-video below. Fans can now preorder a copy of the album, which is available on both CD and 180 gram double LP gatefold vinyl.



17th Street tracklist:

01. 317
02. 17th Street
03. The Grain
04. Staring (The 31st Floor)
05. The Day The City Died
06. Romance Valley
07. Summer Tears
08. Grey Wednesday
09. Going Somewhere
