Windang duo Hockey Dad have announced the release of a new live album, recorded straight from their iconic Live At The Drive In shows last year. The live album will be available on vinyl. and features recordings of I Missed Out, Itch and more from Brain Candy as well as fan favourites Join The Club, Seaweed, Sweet Release and more
The mammoth event was a welcome return to the stage for the duo, who were forced to cancel and postpone shows due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Live At The Drive ushered in the spirit of summer fun and community as 400 cars full of fans drove into Bulli Showground to see the band take to the stage for the first time since the release of their third record, Brain Candy.
Speaking of the release, the band share: “The drive-in shows were such a strange and exciting experience for us. The idea was so foreign, and we had no idea how it was actually going to play out. The atmosphere was unlike any other show we’ve ever played. We wanted to record and release the show as a little memento from a very weird time in the entertainment industry where conventional gigs are out the window. Hopefully it brings back fond memories if you attended any of the gigs. If it’s your first listen, we hope you enjoy the show and we are sure you’ll love the horns.”
With Smoke billowing from car windows, the sounds of drinks clinking whilst cars shook from their seated dance moves, Hockey Dad’s fans showed up in full force to celebrate not only the band and their latest release, but a great return of live music.
