A resurgence in Dubbo’s original music scene continues this week as five-piece indie-rock band Civil Hands prepares to release their debut album.

Leave It All Behind will touch down on Friday, December 2, and follows the sneak-peak release of single Hold On last Friday.

The debut album is the culmination of two years of writing, recording and gigging, and is set to be followed by a tour in early 2017.

They have also been staunch supporters of the Lust for Live initiative, which partners with local venues to host free gigs.

“Civil Hands have been an awesome indy/alt-folk addition to Dubbo’s original music scene...with catchy, earthy tunes and solid songwriting,” Lust for Live organiser Tim Hosking said.

The band have honed their unique sound on the road at shows in Orange, Canberra, Tunes on the Turf and Dubbo’s Dream Festival, and have imbued Leave It All Behind with the energy of their live performances.

Civil Hands will feature in Lust for Live on Tour at the Cambridge Hotel in Parkes on Friday, December 2.
