Hockey Dad have announced a massive one-off drive-in concert for July, coinciding with the release of their latest album.

Coming just days before their new record was originally set for release, and their latest national tour was set to kick off, Hockey Dad announced the news to their fans this morning, revealing they’ll be performing Brain Candy in full during their performance at Wollongong’s Bulli Showground.

“It’s super exciting to be able to play a show again,” the group explained in a statement.

“The drive-in aspect will make it such a new experience for everybody. The fact we can bring back live music in this way is so cool. It’s a mixture of old school entertainment crossed with a weird futuristic apocalypse vibe.”

In addition to Hockey Dad’s performance, the group will also be joined by the Pinheads, while the event will also feature a screening of Rage 3, a surf documentary directed by Skegss bassist Toby Cregan.

Tickets to the event are on sale now, and are being sold by the car, meaning that while only 400 cars will be allowed in, it’s makes financial sense to gather your mates together to help lower the cost – just like you would at any regular drive-in.

Special showbag bundles are also available, which include general admission, in addition to the new album on cassette, a signed poster, sticker, and a few other goodies”.

Hockey Dad’s new album, Brain Candy, is officially set to be released on July 31st via Farmer & The Owl, with pre-orders available now.
