We All Have Hooks for Hands started as a recording project in a downtown apartment in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. The group started forming after the collapse of a previous band and the gathering of people at college. The amount of people in the beginning that were in the group is not important. Hooks for Hands is and always will be a community based project led by a core group of people and the band number has definitely fluctuated since then. The band quickly recorded an ep right away and toured on it to the west coast. After coming back Hooks for Hands started the process of recording their first full length: the Pretender. Towards the end of production the album found its way to Afternoon Records where Ian Anderson signed the band and released their first full length. Again Hooks took off on tour this time with good friends Mouthful of Bees who were also on Afternoon Records and partially responsible for Hooks getting signed. This time they headed east to the land of opportunity in a 1975 Winnebago. And after almost running into everything on the east coast they headed back and started on their next record.
The Shape of Energy has been almost two years in the making. Hooks went through many troubles with home recording until finally being pushed into a studio in Minneapolis at the Terrarium. The overall different experience from recording the first record to recording this new one will be apparent in the Shape of Energy. The Shape of Energy is a loud, dynamic burst of sound influenced by different styles of music with an overriding tone of indie rock. The idea behind the album came from a Tom Robbins novel in the fact that energy never dies it just loses its shape. It seems as if the band in general was the reorganization of shapes of energy into one giant ball that is We All Have Hooks for Hands. It is stated in the law of conservation of energy that energy is neither created, nor destroyed; so the only thing that changes is the Shape of Energy.
