Hockey Dad have announced rescheduled dates for their ‘Brain Candy’ album tour. The surf rock duo had been due to tour nationally in June. However, they postponed their shows in compliance with coronavirus-imposed venue restrictions.
Hockey Dad will now tour Australia in April 2021, performing at the originally scheduled venues. The band took to social media today (July 15) to share the new performance dates.
“We can’t thank you enough for all of your patience so far with us getting these new dates locked in,” the band wrote on Twitter.
“All purchased tickets will remain valid for these new shows. Refunds available at point of purchase also.”

Hockey Dad’s third album, the highly anticipated ’Brain Candy’, is due to be released on July 31. Recorded in Seattle with American producer John Goodmanson (Bikini Kill, Death Cab For Cutie), the album will feature recent singles ‘I Missed Out’, ‘Itch’, ‘In This State’ and ‘Good Eye’.
To celebrate ‘Brain Candy”s release, Hockey Dad will perform two hometown drive-in shows on July 31 and August 1.
“The drive-in aspect will make it such a new experience for everybody,” the band commented in a press statement.
“The fact we can bring back live music in this way is so cool. It’s a mixture of old school entertainment crossed with a weird futuristic apocalypse vibe.”
