    Animal Disco + CDC Leisure present:

    Hockey played four hotly-anticipated gigs at the famed South By Southwest music festival in mid-March, following a series of downtown Manhattan and Brooklyn shows that stoked a chorus of on-line cheers and a notice in Paste Magazine’s 10 New Artists to Watch in 2009.Two smashingly successful visits to the U.K. in December and in February (with Passion Pit) have built Hockey’s international momentum right up to the U.S. release of their “Too Fake” single - the video and digital single is available now and a vinyl 7-inch will be available May 19.
    Formed in Los Angeles five years ago by founders Ben Grubin, lead singer, and Jeremy “Jerm” Reynolds on bass, Hockey is now based in Portland, Oregon as a quartet with Brian White on guitar, and Anthony Stassi on drums.
    ‘Mind Chaos’ was released independently, and the group signed to Capitol late in 2008. The album will be remixed and remastered, with new songs added, for the August 25th, 2009 international release.

    Oh you beauty! Haven't heard the new sunset rubdown album yet. Must investigate. The gig in Dublin last time was pretty good, but I still say they can do better so this is a must!

    Absolutely can't wait for this gig, wanted to see Sunset Rubdown for a long time now.

    Ha. I think it was yourself who had a different experience of the dublin gig too?
    Here's what i though. Give me a Sunset Rubdown album any day - not bothered to see them live again though. http://amolta.wordpress.com/2009/09/12/sunset-rubdown-spring-airbrake-110909/

    I guess you were standing in a totally different position than me (at both gigs) Haha!! I got Speaking to Spencer before and after the show and he says he gets really nervous before shows and really prepares himself. He also added that he honestly had a f*&@ing great time in Belfast (after bottle of Jameson). Can't wait till they come back. They give me shivers.

    I'm with Amz on this one. Went along as a big fan of them and came away pretty much feeling meh. Partly sound issues and partly the band not going for it really. Poor differentiation between the instruments/vocals was a problem when everything was going...with everthing sounding like WAHWAHWAHWAH. Pity really. The quieter and less fussy songs generally worked better. As for Yes Cadets all I could hear was bass.
  24. avatar GerdaTaro
    Hmm. They had me at hello. Each to their own.
    The bloke who couldnt suppress a spontaneous roar of [b:ac38d65089]GO ON SPENCER SON[/b:ac38d65089] in the middle of the encore seemed to be enjoying himself too!

    We regret to inform you that tonight's (Monday 21st sept) gig in the Spring & Airbrake has had to be postponed

    From the Band:

    "Due to scheduling commitments Hockey will be unable to perform in Belfast as
    we will be on Never Mind The Buzzcocks. We'd like to pass on our sincere
    apologies to our fans who were looking forward to the show and we promise to
    come back to Belfast as soon as our busy schedule permits. Please hang onto
    your tickets as they will remain valid for the next show which will be
    announced for next year.
    Lots of love"
