Triple J & Village Sounds Present
Hockey Dad Plus Guests (Last Dinosaurs, Vundabar (US) + Teen Jesus & The Jean Teasers)
Off the back of releasing their brand new single “Itch” and album news for Brain Candy the duo today announce their own headline tour, supported by triple j. Joining them will be Last Dinosaurs, Vundabar (USA) and Teen Jesus And The Jean Teasers. They’ll be kicking off the tour in Adelaide, then heading over to Fremantle, Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney. This tour will follow a mammoth run across the globe from the UK, Europe and the USA officially making this Hockey Dad’s biggest touring year ever!
Hockey Dad’s new single 'Itch', is out now, an epic fuzzed ballad, which started off as a delicate, droned out kind of feel. It grew in the studio as the band added more layers and has become a giant of a song that slowly builds to a massive finish with one of Zach Stephenson’s biggest vocals to date.
“It’s definitely the most non-Hockey Dad song we have ever recorded” shares Zach. “Itching is the worst feeling you could have sometimes. The idea comes from a person having someone under their skin and constantly invading their thoughts. But for some reason, can’t get enough of it. Can’t get enough of being controlled and held down. It’s kind of saying ‘come on in and keep me captive. I’m all yours’”
