Queensland riff commanders Hobo Magic are back with an epic self-titled jam and accompanying East Coast tour to boot. With show here in Newcastle at The Wickham Park Hotel this Friday, April 21st with local rockers In Motion

The Sunshine Coast trio, known nationally for their unique brand of heavy psychedelic Rock, bend minds and melt faces with their latest, taking the listener on a journey through dark Sabbath-esque territory into a solid 70s groove, time signature shifts, bass breakdowns and out and out A1 quality Rock’n’Roll.

The new song pushes home a message of perseverance, passion, cooperation and positive change for anyone who is creative and wishes to follow a path in life that is different than the social norm. Check it out HERE.

After their debut self-titled EP release and subsequent Australian tour in 2015, Hobo Magic have riffed and tripped around many of Australia’s clubs, pubs, bedrooms, skate parks and warehouses, ripping out their style of heavy grooving mayhem. The acclaimed act has supported such International heavyweight bands such as Earthless, Elder, Lecherous Gaze, Red Fang, Kadavar, Radio Moscow and The Sword, leaving ringing ears and smiling faces in their wake.

Hobo Magic

This tour will see the band drop 14 dates up and down the East Coast, including a support slot with legendary Stoner Rock icon Brant Bjork, following a Mojo Burning share bill with Nick Oliveri late last month.  The band will also feature at VIC festival Negative Waves with Bjork and Oliveri along with a host of headline shows around the country.

Planning for a European tour is underway as is the full album release, penned for late 2017 with a comprehensive national tour in tow.

Lead singer and guitarist Connor Mitchell of Hobo Magic says of the upcoming tour “We are all super stoked to release our self-titled single ‘Hobo Magic’ as we believe it sums up everything we are as a band.  We’ve got some epic shows planned around the release of the single and are excited to hit some new places on the tour map. Hit us up at a show and let’s get groovy!”
