We All Have Hooks for Hands is a folk pop group from Sioux Falls, South Dakota. In early 2007 the group signed to Afternoon Records. The group formed after the breakup of their former punk/ hardcore bands. Starting as a studio recording collective the band solidified at nine members with the release of "The Pretender" their first full length album. Soon after that they set off on tour with Mouthful of Bees for a couple weeks to the east coast and a few dates in the south. In 2009 the group was pushed into the studio in Minneapolis to record their next full length "The Shape of Energy". "The Shape of Energy" was engineered by Dusty Miller at The Terrarium and his home studio, then mixed by Ian Pulicci, and finally mastered by Dave Gardner. They took a different approach on this album recording most of it live in studio, and then single tracking the rest. The album was released on Nov 15th, 2009.The group has put a hard push towards their album "The Shape of Energy", by touring in late 2009 to early 2010.
