“He’s a little fucking bad-ass, that is for goddamn sure” Hawkins told the crowd (per Rolling Stone), going to change the lyrics to the song to: “He took it all too far/But boy can Shane play the fuckin’ drums.”

Last week, NHC shared a new video for their recent single ‘Devil That You Know’, one of two new songs from the band shared earlier this month, alongside ‘Lazy Eye’. They followed on from the double release of ‘Feed The Cruel’ and ‘Better Move On’ in September.

NHC formed last December, and an album has been recorded, though a release date and full details have yet to be confirmed.

Chaney and Hawkins previously played together in Alanis Morissette’s live band in the ’90s, while Chaney is also a part of Hawkins’ solo band The Coattail Riders.
