Lio: For my first trip to Australia, I had simple goals: feed some Kangaroos, hold a Koala bear, drink some good Ales, visit some beautiful beaches and catch some cool bands. The main reason for my visit was Big Sound Festival of course.
Sifting through hundreds of bands before I arrived, there was one in particular that I kept coming back to. Their name Hockey Dad was intriguing, and their single “Can’t Have Them” simply wouldn’t leave my head. Upon seeing them live in Brisbane, I was pleasantly surprised to find two young artists having a good time above all else. Their energy was infectious, and their ace songwriting didn't hurt either. It took about all of 30 seconds to realize, I must have them.
Happy to announce today we will be releasing the debut by Australian duo Hockey Dad this June. Watch the video for first single Can't Have Them and download at BandCamp.
Can't Have Them will be on all streaming & download services Jan 29th.
Hockey Dad's next US dates are at SXSW. Those dates and album details forthcoming.
