Hobnail Ballet: Spiked



After several solo escapades of the band members, Hobnail Ballet announced their long awaited new studio release. 'Spiked' explores an eclectic diversity of styles and genres ranging from quirky urban techno to voluptuous jazz to haunting covers of international megahits. The group's trademark - obscure ancient and ethnic instruments woven with silken vocals and irrestistable percussion - returns. Only now the group incorporates even more diverse instruments, including automobile parts, animal bones, recycled wine bottles, and the African Kora, an ancient form of instrument with 21 strings.

Infused with an infectious offbeat optimism, these tracks break new ground in fracturing urban rhythms, surpassing even the rhythmic diversity of their debut album, 'Graceless Angels' and compelling the listener to motion, to dance. How will the band translate these beats in their newly announced live performances? Fans and critics alike are 'spiked' with anticipation.
