HAMMERS  OF MISFORTUNE: “17th Street” streaming in its entirety on NPR’s First Listen!

The new full-length album “17th Street” out  October 25th

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 metal, 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. “I can see how someone could find it an upbeat record at first glance” says  John Cobbett, guitarist and producer of the band, also of underground metal legends Ludicra and  Slough  Feg. “If you listen carefully, you’ll find that each song has its own point of view. You might find hope, or something very different, very dark.”
