Full of subtle minimalism, slow builds, and destructive metallic resolutions, reminiscent to formidable contemporaries of the genre – THIS WILL DESTROY YOU, GODSPEED… and the like. Hobbledehoy mark the end of 2012 with the release of the Melbourne group’s brilliant Untitled debut album on CD and digital formats for the first time – in stores this Friday, November 7 2012. New album coming Autumn 2013…
This is the new unisex Hobblede-Hoodie, fit snug and printed on premium-quality American Apparel thick flex fleece
Adorned with the Hobbledehoy logo, these stickers have been printed on silver vinyl — designed to look good anywhere you put’em
After spending 2012 writing, recording and travelling the world, ELEVENTH HE REACHES LONDON play their first show in over a year. The band will be performing their first album The Good Fight For Harmony in its entirety to celebrate the vinyl reissue / remaster earlier this year.
The show is December 15, with support from RACHEL DEASE, FOXES and ONLY HOPE. Tickets available from the venue.
The band will have limited vinyl copies of the record on the night, alternatively head over to online store to order your copy.
We made these tees as part of Jamie’s “King Of The Sun” album. Available on either black or white, exclusive to the Hobbledehoy store.
Just a little over a week away from release, you can listen to a complete album stream of Jamie Hay’s full-length debut ‘King Of The Sun’ on bandcamp now!
Daytrotter have posted a new session with Mike Kinsella, aka OWEN. Have a listen to some unique live recordings plus check out the awesome drawings!
Do yourself a favor and check it out here.
The tracks are taken from OWEN‘s most recent album Ghost Town. We only have a few LPs left of the Hobbledehoy first pressing.
Great artists in their own right, the three troubadours team up for a tour of intimate shows, which will see AUSTIN LUCAS and PJ BOND touch our shores for the first time.
Presented by Trusty Chords, Hobbledehoy, Last Chance Records and Bombshellzine.

KOTS is a haunted collection of material tracing stories of resilience, courage, heartbreak and tragedy. Whether stripped down to a voice and a guitar or behind his band of close friends, Hay commands attention with an impassioned voice and a compelling narrative…
Jamie Hay will introduce the country to his upcoming record on tour alongside Lincoln Le Fevre from October to December on the King Of The Sun tour. The thrill of spontaneity permeates every set; but there’s sure to be smiles, truthful remunerations, some fists in the air and of course that voracious voice.
Lincoln’s album Resonation is out October 12 on Poison City Records with Jamie’s album due shortly after via Hobbledehoy, details announced soon! Tour dates below…

Hobbledehoy together with Birds Robe / Life Is Noise are presenting the first Australian visit for UK post-rockers 65daysofstatic.
Their most recent records ‘The Destruction of Small Ideas’ and ‘We Were Exploding Anyway’ have seen the band shift into an electronic-based sound that has seen them compared to peers such as Battles and Aphex Twin. But to describe a 65DOS live show is a difficult task to execute well. Viciously euphoric, frenetic, overwhelming, bordering on chaos and really, really loud. It’s what the band thrive on and how they win armies of new admirers every time they go out on the road. Tickets for the bands Australian dates are on sale now, details below.

An indie-rock tour de force, Arrows and their North American contemporaries Empire! Empire! (I Was a Lonely Estate) cosy together on the one record – otherwise separated 15,000 km’s apart.
Recently while in Perth, WA supporting Break Even‘s last shows, a couple of Jamie’s tracks were recorded by the folks at the Bondi Porch Sessions. You can watch “Rabbit On” below, appearing later this year on his upcoming debut album King Of The Sun.
