On The Road With Hockey Dad
Hockey Dad have just wrapped up 14 date SOLD OUT tour and boy was it a crazy ride!
Frontman Zack Stephenson and all round legend took some time out of his busy schedule to chat about his favourite tunes when on the road…
WAAX – SAME SAME
We did a tour with Dune Rats last year and WAAX were on the tour with us. They played better than us every night and we’ve been loving this track ever since!
THE GARDEN – NO DESTINATION
I’ve been a massive Garden fan for a couple of years and they just keep getting better and better. This track is such a good driving song when you’re on tour. Except the destination is usually the next Maccas.
GOOD BOY – HELL IN A HANDBASKET
We are going on tour with Good Boy in NZ really soon and I can’t wait for Rian to scream this song into my face for 2 weeks.
BLACK LIPS – WAYNE
I like to think this song is actually about Lil’ Wayne. It makes the weird country outer space sound even cooler. I also really want to get a talk box for the next HD record after hearing this.
BOAT SHOW – THE BIG SMOKE
Boat Show have been playing with us on our Blend Inn tour and have been killing it every night! This song is their absolute #1-triple platinum-groundbreaking masterpiece-banger.
HATCHIE – TRY
Hatchie has the sweetest voice and the catchiest hooks in Australia right now. Just try and prove us wrong.
AMYL & THE SNIFFERS – BALACLAVA LOVER BOOGIE
Amy joined us at our last Melbourne show the other week and absolutely killed it. Her stage presence is out of this world and powerful as fuck. Her and the sniffers always deliver and this track is a classic Australian punk powerhouse!
ROLLING STONES – TUMBLING DICE
This track and band influenced our last album so much its not even funny. If you put this through the bluetooth speaker in the band room it will always gather a healthy cheer and shut everyone up for 5 minutes.
VUNDABAR – TONIGHT I’M WEARING SILK
We did a tour with Vundabar in America last year and they are now our favourite Boston boys. Their new record is hot as fire and this track is the funnest one of the bunch.
BECK – DEBRA
Debra has been getting played every day of our tour so far. Honestly I hope this never ends. We might even have to cover it so I can get my fix of screaming falsetto and horns.
CHEERS TO THAT…
