HOGAN’S GOAT from Nashville have a brand new music video out for their track “Shit Kicker“.
“We went out to Montana, fucked around, and summoned the spirit of the ‘Shit Kicker.’
No but seriously, from the moment we wrote it, we knew “Shit Kicker” would be the best representation of our style. A song about true grit, unwavering courage, and standing your ground. Our goal was to symbolically showcase the Shit Kicker that lives in all of us; no matter who you are, or where you’re from.
We want to give a special thanks to Walter and Cassie Runsabove, who sat down with us after filming, and gave us a lesson on Native American culture over breakfast. We would also like to thank Curley, Ed Fick, and there rest of the Billings Road Dogs for letting us crash their toy drive, film part of ‘Shit Kicker,’ and play a few songs for them. That wouldn’t have been possible without the help of Montana Mobile Stage and Productions, too! Thanks, Charlie!” – John Salmon (Vocals)
HOGAN’S GOAT is named after a tale from Scottish folklore. The band initially formed in late 2014. As the story goes, a farmer (Hogan) owned a goat rumored to have an odor said to travel miles away. The goat’s been described as having patchy fur, an eye out of socket, and flies abound. For the band, this perfectly symbolized their unorthodox style, that which is anything but unnoticeable. They couldn’t have picked a better fable for their namesake. More like a powerful mountain ram the band roams through various styles of music never staying in one place too long. Their first show (at SXSW, on the rooftop of The Blind Pig) was part of an all Nashville (non-country) showcase. Soon after, HOGAN’S GOAT returned to Nashville, they competed in BMI’s “Road To Bonnaroo” (winning the fan vote) and played many other shows around the Nashville area. While most people think Nashville is only a country town, there is a vibrant rock and metal scene there as well. HOGAN’S GOAT has hoofed their way out of sea of country music to spread their music to the masses.
While the band is based in Nashville it’s members migrated from all around the country like Billings, Montana, Denton, Texas , Southern Pines, North Carolina as well as Nashville. Like their music their roots run further than the eye can see. In March of 2016, HOGAN’S GOAT began recording their first LP, ‘Hogan’s Goat’ which released July 18th, 2017. The album was self-produced, mixed by Alex Gilson and Nathan Zensen at Gold Cassette and mastered by Tommy Dorsey. The band looks to tour regionally, nationally, and globally.
