Not even stopping for a cup of tea and a lie down after their 7 city North island tour and a 5 date guest band slot for the Smokefree Rockquest regional finals, Skinny Hobos continue to push their gigantic 2-piece sound into NZ’s earholes with the release of brand new single 'Suburban Living,' which premieres June 22nd on The Rock Nights with Mike and is available everywhere Friday, June 23rd.
Delivering more energy and noise than two men legally should, the bombastic single perfectly showcases the Hobos driving rock and roll sound, adding a bucket of sass and a pinch of groove to the mix. Says guitarist/singer Alex Elvis of the instrumentation, “You couldn't get more cowbell if you cloned 30 copies of Will Ferrell, chucked them in a field full of Dutch dairy cows, and made it rain fidget spinners.”
Suburban Living is the third single release from Skinny Hobos, whose April 2016 debut single ‘The Merchant of Tirau’ peaked at #1 on the NZ iTunes Rock chart and jumped in at #150 on The Rock’s listener voted 1500 Countdown – in between entries from Alice Cooper and Led Zeppelin. Following single ‘Jokers and Fools’ debuted at #4 on the iTunes Rock charts and again saw support from The Rock who swiftly added the track to their celebrated Soundcheck rotate.
Skinny Hobos will again be delivering their explosive live set straight to the main centers of NZ this July, in support of the Suburban Living release. Catch them with headliners Decades along with Bakers Eddy and Dead Favours at these locations.
