SKINNY HOBOS are back with a vengeance offering up their first release since their 2018 VNZMA-nominated debut album. ‘Lucifer’ will be released alongside a collection of new and previously unreleased material, available worldwide on March 1st. Having established their riff-heavy sound, the two-piece powerhouse look to push the limits of what can be achieved with only a guitar and a drum kit.
Drummer and vocalist Texas Holdom says of the new track, “Lucifer is a bridge between where we were, and where we’re headed. We’re always looking to push ourselves as a band; this is merely a taste of what is to come.”
To celebrate the release of ‘Lucifer,’ SKINNY HOBOS will hit the road on a 14-date nationwide tour. The tour will hit cities big and small around the country including a headline slot at Groovefest VII in Christchurch and their third consecutive appearance at Jim Beam Homegrown in Wellington - further cementing them as one of New Zealand’s favourite exports.
SKINNY HOBOS will be ably supported by DEAD FAVOURS, who had a breakout 2018 with singles ‘Dig’ and ‘On Your Own' and CORIDIAN, fresh off the release of their Caldera EP.
Venue: Smash Palace Bar, Banks Street, Gisborne
Time: 7pm - 11.30pm
