Hockey DadÂ are back on the tools! Their new single Tâ€™s To Cross, released today viaÂ Farmer & The OwlÂ /Â BMGÂ is their first new music since their 2020 #2 ARIA charting third albumÂ ‘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 Tâ€™s To Cross the first fruits of their labour, they didnâ€™t want to waste anytime and are stoked to have new music released into the world.
Tâ€™s To Cross is classic Hockey Dad and a bit of a reality check for workers and the daily grind. But for what?
“Tâ€™s To Cross is an ode to the rat race,â€ the band said when explaining the song. â€œItâ€™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 ofÂ Taking Back SundayÂ andÂ 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 wonâ€™t have to wait too long with Hockey Dad returning forÂ This That FestivalÂ at Sandstone Point Hotel, north of Brisbane on Saturday 29Â October and Newcastle on Saturday 5 November, followed by Vanfest in Bathurst on Saturday 3Â December andÂ NYE On The HillÂ in Kernot regional Victoria on Friday 30 December.
Recently the duo celebrated a couple of huge sales milestones with their songs Seaweed hittingÂ PlatinumÂ certification and Join The ClubÂ and I Need A Woman both hittingÂ GoldÂ status. With Tâ€™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.
