Australian-based Hockey Dad is a musical project formed by lifelong best mates Zach Stephenson (vocals/guitar) and Billy Fleming (drums). Having met in early childhood as next-door neighbours, the two turned to music to combat the stillness of small-town coastal life, taking their name from an episode of The Simpsons, and jamming in Dad’s back shed.
Their delectably rough take on scuzzy indie-rock is reminiscent of the Seattle grunge days, and coincidentally their upcoming third album ‘Brain Candy’ – out on 31 July via Farmer & The Owl / BMG – was produced in Seattle with John Goodmanson (Sleater-Kinney, Bikini Kill, Death Cab For Cutie, Blonde Redhead), and mixed by Troy Glessner (Alice in Chains, The Blood Brothers, Foo Fighters).
