For two childhood friends from a small coastal town in Australia, HOCKEY DAD has come a long way in their relatively short existence. Growing up on the stages of small bars in Wollongong since mid-2013, the duo of Zach Stephenson (guitar/vocals) and Billy Fleming (drums) began to grow their following outside their home city with the release of their debut EP Dreamin in June 2014. Growing interest in the band led to national tours alongside the likes of DZ DEATHREAYS, BASS DRUM OF DEATH, and BAD/DREEMS, aand they were named the winners of Triple J’s Unearthed competition, landing them a spot on Byron Bay’s prestigious Falls Music & Arts Festival over the new year.The duo are now looking to expand their reach beyond their home country. Following their recent performance at CMJ in New York, the band has just signed with Kanine Records in the US in anticipation of their debut album release in mid-2016.Athens, GA-bred noise terrorists MUUY BIIEN have been demanding (and getting) a shitload of attention since their April 2015 debut record. Playing aggressive, blown-out and jagged punk rock with zeroed-in focus and fearless, unpretentious attitude, MUUY BIIEN are the real thing, and the power of D.Y.I. is palpable. With no college degrees, no connections and no future, this ain’t some snappy bullshit that every blog on the planet is gonna champion before moving onto “the next big thing” – MUUY BIIEN is here to stay and they can (and likely will) go wherever the fuck they please.
