Holy Hail
at the Dickies Battle of the Bands in Austin, Texas, on 20th March 2009


Dancefloor music with political undertones

Video:
'Born of a Star' by Holy Hail (2007) www.myspace.com/holyhail. The debut video is directed by Elliot Jokelson from Ghost Robot www.ghostrobot.com. By youtube.com/user/ACTHRecordings

The New York band Holy Hail mixes pop, hip-hop, new-wave, electro... dancefloor music.

But, so you can read on the site of Dickies, the American work wear specialist and organiser of the Dickies battle in 20th March: "...don’t mistake them for your average dance band: a good portion of these tracks is strewn with political undertones. The album opener tackles the Iraq war and at album close, the south’s big catastrophe, Hurricane Katrina. In the middle, references are made to the environment, wire tapping, and the American-Indian genocide."

Holy Hail is one of 8 lucky winners that have been handpicked to compete at the inaugural Dickies Battle of the Bands contest in Austin, Texas, on 20th March. The world wide active work wear manufacturer Dickies was founded in 1922 in US. Dickies garments, from work pants and work shirts to denim jeans, women's work wear and kids' school wear, embody "...the spirit of the American worker-traits mirrored in the rugged lifestyle that any independent / unsigned artist endures while grinding away to share their music with the masses."

Check out the website of Dickies for the biographies and videos of the 8 bands www.dickiesupstart.com.
