Artist Information

The Hard Lessons Bio

Five years on from those first four-track recordings in Augie’s dorm room, The Hard Lessons have finally completed the album they were destined to make all along. Arms Forest is the result of endless touring across countries familiar and foreign. It is the distillation of youth and the beginning of life-long relationship. It is the fall of an empire and a rebirth of a band. Arms Forest is a sea of hands raised high, dancing in a living room. Arms Forest is stockpile of weapons, for sale out of back seats of automobiles. Arms Forest is the meeting place for lovers finding each other for the first time. Arms Forest is a symbol of chaos, danger and freedom.
