For the past year, fans of the wildly popular, Keanu Reeves-starring video game Cyberpunk 2077 have been clamoring for the release of Mojo Hand, the hard rocking hit featured in the game’s official trailer, “The Gig.” Now, on the 6-month anniversary of their latest full-length album Heavy Shoes, the Indiana blues-rock outfit The Cold Stares have finally released the single, marking their first new music of 2022. Mixed by Gordie Johnson (Big Sugar, Gov’t Mule), Mojo Hand has already received more than 100 million streams through the Cyberpunk 2077 trailer and is one of two songs by The Cold Stares featured in the game.

“Mojo Hand” is about a woman that is like a force of nature,” explains guitarist Chris Tapp. “When she blows in it's like a storm - bad weather, tornados, the whole works. But the guy who loves her has the “mojo hand,” and he's able to overcome all of her craziness for the sake of love.”
The band is currently on tour in support of Heavy Shoes and is working on a new album, due out later this year.
