Growing up on the stages of small bars in Wollongong since mid-2013, the duo of Zach Stephenson (guitar/vocals) and Billy Fleming (drums) began to grow their following outside their home city with the release of their debut EP "Dreamin" in June 2014.
"Dreamin" was produced by Tom Iansek (Big Scary, #1 Dads) and remains the first release for newly formed Leisure Coast label Farmer & The Owl. "I Need A Woman", the lead single from the five-track EP, earned the band rotation on Triple J and FBi Radio as well as plenty of love across the web. In the US it peaked at #77 on the CMJ 200, and charted at #23 on the FMQB Sub-Modern charts.
Growing interest in the band led to national tours alongside the likes of DZ Deathrays, Bass Drum Of Death and Bad//Dreems, and they were named the winners of Triple J’s Unearthed competition, landing them a spot on Byron Bay’s prestigious Falls Music & Arts Festival over the new year.
"Can’t Have Them" is the brand new single from Hockey Dad, in which they have just completed a national tour across Australia to launch, selling out all eight shows.
The duo are now looking to expand their reach beyond their home country. Following their recent performance at CMJ in New York, the band has just signed with Kanine Records in the US in anticipation of their debut album release in mid-2016.
