THE HIDDEN HAND, the band featuring hard rock guitar legend Scott "Wino" Weinrich (ST. VITUS, THE OBSESSED, SPIRIT CARAVAN), have set "Mother Teacher Destroyer" as the title of their new album, due in Germany on September August 23 and rest of Europe on October 4 through Exile On Mainstream Records. A U.S. release date through Southern Lord Records has yet to be announced.

"This is definitely one hell of an album," reads a press release from Exile On Mainstream. "Forget anything you've been expecting. It is WAYYYYY better! THE HIDDEN HAND walk the path right through the last four decades of rock and creates something completely new in an area where nobody has been before (not to say that there are influences and honest respect to the godfathers of the music we love).

"THE HIDDEN HAND 2004 are rising from the fields of KING CRIMSON, '70s rock and doom roots, and include some RUSH influences and effects from nowadays atmospheric (instrumental) rock that brought us OSTINATO, MOGWAI and ISIS. Please don't get me wrong here. I'm not trying to say THE HIDDEN HAND sounds like ANY of these bands. They just grabbed some of their attitudes, their way to create sounds and structures, and mixed together a completely outstanding new beginning. I'm talking about a new era here! This isn't sounding like a 'Wino band' at all anymore. This is truly something extraterrestrial. Touched by the hand of, yeah, let's say it, God."
