In Total was recorded in May 2015 in Kingston, Ontario, and mixed over a couple of years in various locations.
It was officially released on vinyl as a limited edition object in March 2017 by the Hapax Institute for Nascent Thought (HINT), who submitted the small run of 50 records to various archives and stores around the world.
A video of the same name was made by the band alongside the album, which can be seen in full here: vimeo.com/205288598
The band dedicates the album and video to the Artel Collective - a loose consortium of artists, writers and filmmakers from Kingston who actively programmed an exhibition and performance venue called The Artel. The collective and venue officially ended in early 2017.
HAND was formed at and through The Artel. The current formation of the band is comprised of Nick Fellion, Liam Cole, and Neven Lochhead.
