The Puckhogs RIDE AGAIN!!
This past spring, The Puckhogs got together for a chat (okay, beer - we got together to drink some beer), and decided that it might be the right time to release an album. You know, because it's been almost three years since we came runner up in the CBC Song Quest for the Next Great Canadian Hockey Song, so everyone will have forgotten us and we'll have zero momentum. LOL.
Top TWO actually!
Between selling the song to raise money for The Human League of Sudbury and playing the Rogers Hometown Hockey gig, and having to explain to people that we weren't really a band and couldn't just show up to play the one song, I guess we lost track of time. But better late than never they say, so over the past while we've been writing songs and doing pre-production for an album we hope to have out before Christmas! (Given our sense of timing, Victoria Day Long Weekend might be more like it, but we'll keep you apprised of our progress over at The Puckhogs Facebook page, which you really show throw a LIKE at.)
Here are some shots from the Artifact Media studios!
You can still purchase the song at Bandcamp - it'll help with costs. Even though we're doing most of it at Brent's and we can cover off most of the instruments, we'll still be bringing in other musicians to round out the sound, and may even have some CDs printed for your holiday gift giving. (Or May Long Weekend shenanigans!)
ANYWAY, that's our story for now! There's plenty more to come, so stay tuned!!
