Hockey Dad announce 2021 regional Australian tour

Taking on 18 regional towns around the country

Hockey Dad have announced a huge, 19-date regional tour of Australia set for later this year.

The tour will kick off in August, and see the band hit regional cities and towns throughout Australia’s east coast. It will begin in Mackay, before taking on multiple dates in Queensland, Western Australia, New South Wales and Victoria, ending in Frankston.

Taking to social media to announce the tour, the Windang duo said, “We absolutely love regional shows…can’t wait to pop into all of our favourite towns again.”


In addition, Hockey Dad will be joined by Melbourne surf rock outfit The Grogans for the entirety of the tour.

In July of last year, Hockey Dad released their third album, ‘Brain Candy’. In a review of the album, NME’s Ali Shutler wrote, “Hockey Dad forget about genre on their eclectic, third full-length.

“From the grunge-influenced ‘Heavy Assault’ that sounds like Soundgarden meets Weezer, to the ragtag indie joy of ‘Dole Brother’, the Windang duo are ace whatever the flavour.”
