Hockey Dad are back on the tools! Their new single ‘T’s To Cross’, released today via Farmer & The Owl / BMG is their first new music since their 2020 #2 ARIA charting third album Brain Candy.
The Windang duo Zach Stephenson and Billy Fleming have been holed up in a studio writing and recording over the last few months working on a bunch of new music. With ‘T’s To Cross’ the first fruits of their labour, they didn’t want to waste anytime and are stoked to have new music released into the world.
‘T’s To Cross’ is classic Hockey Dad and a bit of a reality check for workers and the daily grind. But for what?
“T’s To Cross is an ode to the rat race,” the band said when explaining the song. “It’s a look into the daily grind most people go through just to survive. Clock in/Clock out. Everybody jumping over the top of each other to make it up the totem pole. When really we all end up old and bald. Is this lifetime of sacrifice really worth it in the end?”
Hockey Dad are enjoying a Northern Summer having been invited to tour the US as special guests of Taking Back Sunday and Third Eye Blind. The 30+ date tour will see the band perform to thousands of fans each night as they crisscross the country.
Australian fans won’t have to wait too long with Hockey Dad returning for This That Festival at Sandstone Point, north of Brisbane on Saturday 29th October and Newcastle on Saturday 5th November. Then Vanfest in Bathurst on Saturday 3rd December and NYE On The Hill in Kernot regional Victoria on Friday 30th December.
Recently the duo celebrated a couple of huge sales milestones with their songs ‘Seaweed’ hitting Platinum certification and ‘Join The Club’ and ‘I Need A Woman’ both hitting Gold status. With ‘T’s To Cross’ released and work on album four well underway, Hockey Dad are in the zone and excited for the new music to come.
