Idle Hands forced to change name

2020-09-29 by Fernando Alves CONTRIBUTOR | 17 Comments
Due to US trademark law, Portland rockers Idle Hands are no longer able to perform or record music under the current band's name.

Band statement on their official Facebook page:

"Due to US trademark law, we are no longer able to perform or record music under the name IDLE HANDS. We have done everything in our power to retain the name but we can not. While regrettable, these things happen.

Subsequently, we are liquidating almost all Idle Hands merchandise at extremely reduced prices until sold out HERE: lonefirrecords.com

All existing pre-orders will ship on schedule"

Guarantee they sound better than whatever band already holds the trademark. I guess it's beside the point, but still.

Had this more or less happen with my personal band but the other band in question was 1) from the UK and 2) cool as shit. We had a good mutual understanding.

Can't imagine how much it would suck to have to get lawyers involved. Awesome that it worked out nice for both bands

I was a little underwhelmed the one time I listened to Mana, but it may be a grower. Went ahead and bought Mana and DWYT on CD since they were only $2.50 each. Fuck it. Sucks for the band though. I'm sure they're losing a bit of money from all this.

Less than $8 after shipping for a beanie, I’m very tempted, but afraid to spend on something like that in a year such as 2020.

I was tempted to scoop both CDs for $5 but shipping them to me is $18 alone. Shipping from America always costs so much

I like the artwork and would grab a shirt if they weren't sold out. I recall 3ing their album from 2019 though.

Grabbed those CDs and a beanie, shame about the shirts though.

New name will be Unto Others, which I like!
