HOCKEY ADD 2010 TOUR DATES
Portland's Hockey pick up in 2010 right where they left off in '09; touring the globe in support of their debut album Mind Chaos. After a string of West Coast dates, the foursome will play shows in Japan, Australia, New Zealand, Germany, Switzerland, France, Spain and the U.K., before returning home to headline a club tour starting March 11 in Minneapolis.
The band's new single "Song Away" hits Alternative radio on February 9 and the video was named one of the best of 2009 by iTunes as part of iTunes Rewind 2009. Hockey's breakout first single "Too Fake" reached #25 at alternative radio and is still being spun at many stations around the country.
Hockey played their first New York City show last January and have since toured the globe non-stop, including the U.K. three times, U.S. festivals SXSW, Sasquatch!, Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza and CMJ, and almost every major European festival including Glastonbury, Hove, Peace and Love, Eurockenees, Solidays, Oxegen, T In The Park and Gurtenfestival, Leeds and Reading.
Additionally they have performed on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, Fuel TV's Daily Habit, and on Later With Jools Holland and Live From Abbey Road in the U.K. Hockey's Live From Abbey Road appearance will air in the U.S. on the Sundance Channel March 26.
Formed in Los Angeles five years ago by lead singer Ben Grubin and bassist Jeremy "Jerm" Reynolds, Hockey is now based in Portland, OR as a quartet with Brian White on guitar and Anthony Stassi on drums.
