Hobosexual, the Seattle outfit whose Monolith was described as an album that “travels from the heyday of ZZ Top’s AM/FM dominance to the neon beckon of the Sunset Strip to Kyuss’ stoner rock” (Decibel), release a limited-edition, colored vinyl 7-inch titled Tag Team Wrestling Champions today via Mike McCready’s Hockeytalkter Records.
“We’re incredibly grateful and humbled in regard to Mr. McCready and Hockeytalkter’s support, said Ben Harwood of the single that features “Sunset Adieu” and “Monsterbater.” “Resultant of this most triumphant collaboration, we at camp Hobo have aptly titled this little 7-inch vinyl disc of anthemic-triple suplex-brain-exploderating-rock-(and/or)-rollage, Tag Team Wrestling Champions.”
Monolith arrived in November, with the Seattle duo releasing the comedic Making of Monolithdocumentary (https://youtu.be/3qG_uWNRJes) leading up to the album’s arrival. Cryptic Rock said of the 10-song release: “it is hard to believe so much sound is coming from just two guys” while MetalSucks said of the pair, “there’s no shortage of bands out there right now trying to carry the torch for classic rock, but few of them have the kung-fu grip on that torch that Hobosexual have.”
Tag Team Wrestling Champions is available now via Hockeytalkter Records (hockeytalkter.com) and Pearl Jam’s webstore (https://pearljam.com/shop/music/the-purrs-and-hobosexual-7-vinyl-combo). Monolith can be purchased via Bandcamp: https://hobosexualmusic.bandcamp.com/album/monolith.
