New Zealand rockers Skinny Hobos are back with their new album ‘Lucifer‘ which is due to be released worldwide on March 1st. To celebrate the guys are heading out on a lengthy tour of the country, which includes the legendary Jim-Beam Homegrown in Wellington and Groovefest VII in Christchurch. They will be supported by Dead Favours and Coridian, each on select dates.
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 drumkit.
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.
