Hoodlum Shouts announce debut album and East Coast Tour


Hoodlum Shouts deliver their first full-length dose of brooding sing-alongs with the debut album Young Man Old Man set for joint release on Poison City and HelloSquare Recordings on March 28.

Musically Young Man Old Man is a progression from their 2009 Horses and Human Hands EP, expanding the possibilities of modern Australian alt-country rock, while lyrically exploring the age-old themes of history, our past and present and the uncomfortable realisation that some things never change.

“The band summon the tense ghosts of Midnight Oil and The Dead Kennedys as much as evoke more recent locals like The Nation Blue, The Drones and curiously -but with great affect- early Art Of Fighting.” The
