To mark the occasion the band have worked hard to get another single out ahead of their festival appearance to showcase their relentless sound. Following on from this April’s release of From Beyond, debuting new vocalist Jim Andrews, Hammer have sought to keep up their aggressive sound with a fresh track. Accelerator brings all things Hammer to the table: razor sharp riffs, roaring bass, thundering drums and raw brutal vocals. A live favourite for both the audience and the group this track is a love letter from the band to all things metal. Listeners can expect to hear a variety of the band’s influences on this track, from classic, extreme and death metal.

You will be able to catch Hammer on the New Blood stage, Friday the 9th of August at Bloodstock. Following this release and festival appearance, Hammer are planning on hitting the studio to release a larger collection of their new material.

Accelerator will be released digitally on the 25th July 2024, available on all streaming platforms. Drums were recorded at Nameless City sound by Jamie Gilchrist. Tracks mixed & mastered by Kris Kournavos.
