Another night, contact the goal In the dark, a lonely soul Take the gift and spurn the eye All existence here a lie The hand of man is not redeemed Time and space, a sight unseen The hand of man is not redeemed
Boote's Void 06:52
Many are your pages That never see the light Many times you've looked And still can't claim the sight You spit in the face of Jupiter And you know that ain't right But it's all gonna be alright You've got time


With January 2019's four-song debut, "Magnasonic," still very clear in its rear-view mirror, the space hippy collective known as Thunderbird Divine decided it couldn't let 2020 arrive without another offering.

Following the more experimental muse responsible for its predecessor, "The Hand of Man" offers another glimpse into the realm of Thunderbird Divine, with accents on songwriting, a streamlined approach to instrumentation and melodic vision. The band hasn't abandoned its penchant for the dramatic use of unconventional rock instruments like synths, three-string strum stick, lap steel guitar, djembe and electric sitar alongside bass, electric guitar and drums.

Recorded at Retro City Studios in Philadelphia, Cottage Sounds in Brooklyn and The Thunderbird Divine Lair by Joe Boldizar (with Andy Clarke and Dave Klyman--Philadelphia), Charles Newman (Brooklyn) and Thunderbird Divine, respectively, the band has further blurred the lines between straight-ahead rock and psychedelia with this collection of songs.

"Hand of Man" will be available on all the usual digital media sites and distributed on CD via Salt of the Earth Records.
