Named after Gavrilo Princip, the man who assassinated Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria, Hand of Gavrilo is inspired by the relentless aggression of the punk and hardcore scene of days past in San Diego and beyond. The band features singer-guitarist Franco Rakigjija, bassist Andrew Loc (East of Sweden), and drummer Declan Halloran (Pumphouse, Neveready, Love Glow).

In 2017, Halloran and Loc launched a new project called Daytrip, alongside songwriter-singer Todd Anderson.
