To celebrate their 25th anniversary, Ontario Canada's Handheld, the dynamic fast melodic punk band that might have escaped your radar, will release 'Live at 25,' a live album. Captured in a jammed packed small sold-out club, this record is a journey through their discography, brimming with energy. 'Live at 25' out May 10th, via Thousand Islands Records and Pink Lemonade Records.

You can stream the album's third single "A Day My Shoes" below or pre-order the album on vinyl/CD here.

Speaking on the single, lead vocalist Andy Dietrich says, "I wrote this song when we were kids. Sometime around 1998. I think it's about a kid that was a shithead to me in grade school and then when we went to highschool he wasn't popular anymore. Conversely, this song sounded terrible on our first release, but with a little extra time and wisdom, it actually sounds a little better… but still sounds like it was written by a 16 year old. I don't know???.... Get off my lawn!"

From 1998 to 2008, Handheld tore up stages all across North America. Then, they took a 14-year hiatus, only to return with their most powerful album to date, "A Canadian Tragedy." The boys are back to their old tricks again, this time recording a high-production, top-notch full-length live record during a sold-out, intimate club show for all of us to enjoy. Now that they're back, there's no stopping them at this point; they might as well play until they're dead. Expect more new records and more shows on the horizon. Keep it fast, play power chords with your pinky, and unleash forbidden beats with a single kick pedal. Love, HH"
