Best mates first, bandmates second – the heart of Hockey Dad has always existed in the friendship between duo Zach Stephenson and Billy Fleming, who first met in early childhood, growing up two doors apart in the unassuming, laid back Australian coastal town of Windang, New South Wales. The foundations for the band began in early 2013, when an underage Fleming and Stephenson would sneak into their local live music haunt to catch their favorite bands. Eventually they were granted regular slots playing to an ever-growing crew of enthusiastic friends turned fans and released their Dreamin' EP on local Wollongong indie label Farmer & The Owl in 2014.
Now, the duo are on the verge of releasing their highly-anticipated second album Blend Inn, the follow up to 2016's debut Boronia. Where Boronia celebrated the long days of summers past, of mates, the ocean and the sublime naivety of youth, Blend Inn is Fleming and Stephenson coming to us with more perspective following a year of relentless touring which took them far from the streets and waves of their hometown.
