The Safety Fire: launch acoustic reworking of 'Wise Hands'
The Safety Fire:  launch acoustic reworking of 'Wise Hands'
Following a busy summer of festivals, The Safety Fire have been hard at work writing for their third studio album. However the band have also been experimenting with some different arrangements of songs from last years 'Mouth Of Swords', and now they are pleased to reveal a beautiful, acoustic reworking of the track 'Wise Hands'. You can view the equally stunning video for the track here:


The band had this to say: "Growing up with bands like Soundgarden, Alice In Chains and Pearl Jam during the era of MTV-unplugged, we have always had a fondness for acoustic interpretations and versions of songs. This was something we just did for fun but were really happy with how it turned out. With the music being stripped back we felt the video was a fitting portrayal."

'Wise Hands' will be available on all digital platforms including iTunes & Spotify from the 16th December 2014.

The band also recently announced they would be replacing The Faceless as main support on the imminent European dates with Protest The Hero. Find the full list of dates below:
