MikeyWhiskeyHands, the hip hop alter-ego of Mike Fuentes, drummer in San Diego rock outfit Pierce The Veil, has signed with Velocity Records. The first single ‘Get Your Mind Right’ won’t be available until April 3rd, but you can stream a sample of the track and watch a video announcement on Altpress.com.
MikeyWhiskeyHands first came to life as a bit of a lark, but has evolved into much more. As Fuentes recalled, “WhiskeyHands started out as a joke. I was on tour with Pierce The Veil, and Jaime (Preciado, PTV bass player) was making beats on his lap top. I remember playing a show in Vegas and I randomly laid down a verse to one of his beats and right away we knew we had to show people what we could do with this. I’ve been into rap/hip hop before I even started listening to/playing rock so it’s more of something I can have fun with and contribute to the many parties/clubs/gang bangs around the world.”
