Review of CONTINENTS’ IDLE HANDS LP; Out TODAY (like right now) on Victory Records! @victoryrecords @wearecontinents


Here’s another one by resident reviewer/percussive snot pounder, Lord Covey. IDLE HANDS drops TODAY 1/22/13 and will be wherever you find the rest of our Victory Records favorites… Go cop it, take a listen, and judge for yourself! Who listens to drummers, anyway? 🙂
