Yes! Pond are back, and teasing the release of their brilliantly titled forthcoming album Hobo Rocket with a new track, Giant Tortoise – and damn if it doesn’t sound huge!
This first taste of the band’s follow-up to Beard, Wives, Denim launches with a reverb-soaked wall of guitars, dropping back into a tripped-out psych rock verse before reintroducing us to those tasty, tasty riffs that the ever-evolving Pond lineup have been blessing us with over the last few years.
You can feast your ears by streaming the track for free below, but if downloads are more your style head on over to the band’s official website, give them your email and score yourself a free download of the track.
There is currently no release date for Hobo Rocket, but given the band is previewing new material, as well as currently touring internationally with Laneway Festival, AND their recent announcement that some members will release solo albums on the same day, don’t be surprised if there’s an official announcement some time soon!
