Hans the Double was a 3-piece American alternative rock band. Philadelphia's Hans the Double formed in early 2006. Guitarist Gina Fontana was unemployed and advertised her talents on Craigslist, bringing together bass player Mike DiEva, drummer Nick Biscardi, and vocalist/guitarist Justin Lerner. Taking their moniker from a five-second scene from Pee-Wee's Playhouse, the quartet functioned fast despite the drastic difference in both age, geography, and sleep schedules, releasing their first album, 2006's Dossier, just three months after forming. The following year brought about the departure of Fontana and the exploration into a rawer sound, most attributed to Lerner taking on sole responsibility of the guitar work. As a trio, the band engineered their second release entirely out of the basement of Biscardi's home throughout late 2007, releasing Vessels that December. In 2008 the band ventured further away from home, performing at Harrisburg's Millenium Music Conference and touring through the northeast.

However, the group would go on to disband just a month after tour, calling it quits in April 2008. Since the split, Lerner and Biscardi have gone on to form the shoegaze/post-rock outfit, Pilot Cloud. Over the course of their time together, they independently released three albums, survived a lineup change, found themselves as musicians, and toured the Northeastern United States. They have met the loveliest and the most despicable people this universe has to offer, wrote zillions of e-mails, and made just as many phone calls. They saw their fair share of beds, couches, and floors of every caliber. With Everything is Wrong With Everything, live and demo versions of the few tracks written since Vessels are being given the light of day along with alternate versions of some other material.

It, along the group's first two albums, is available on a number of different websites for free download for anyone to enjoy. For fans of Hum, Smashing Pumpkins, Failure, Sunny Day Real Estate, and most music between 1993-1997. Read more on Last.fm.
