Teenage Dads reveal new single 'Hey, Diego' & New Zealand shows
Friday 11 November 2022
Melbourne indie four-piece Teenage Dads today proudly reveal their latest single ‘Hey, Diego’ out now everywhere via Chugg Music. The new single has already become a fan favourite well before its official release via the quirky charisma of the band’s out of this world live show, where fervent fans have been sharing new songs played at the live shows online, learning the lyrics and singing the unreleased tracks back at the band.
Having confirmed their status as the Australian breakthrough indie act of 2022, Teenage Dads are very proud to announce their first ever New Zealand headline shows as part of the MIDNIGHT DRIVING TOUR 2023; with shows in Auckland at The Tuning Fork (All Ages) on April 13, Wellington’s Meow on April 14 and The Loons in Christchurch on April 15. General tickets are on sale is from 12pm on Wednesday November 16 HERE
Inspired by the children’s show Go, Diego, Go!, ‘Hey Diego’ delivers an addictive upbeat pattern of intricate synths and hooky guitars and a punchy chorus. Connor, Jordy, Vinnie and Angus explain: “’Diego’ is the friend that everyone needs, as a reminder that it is okay to be weird, to be different, to do things your own way. Diego is almost mythical in this song, saving us from a boring world with rules and norms and bringing us back to reality where it’s ok to be HUMAN.”
Teenage Dads release ‘Hey Diego’ as a follow-up to the triple j smash single, ‘Teddy’ , as well as ‘Exit Sign’. All three singles will feature on their upcoming 2023 album. The Melbourne based four-piece spent much of 2022 on the road playing sold out shows to an ever-growing legion of fans. The year started with Connor, Jordy, Vincent, and Angus playing to some of their biggest audiences ever as special guests on good mates, Lime Cordiale’s national Australian tour. Their own EXIT SIGN tour saw packed rooms across the country as their reputation grew for being one of the most exciting new band’s to see live. Next came an invite to tour with Spacey Jane for multiple shows in Perth, Sydney, Melbourne, and Brisbane.
Teenage Dads are excited to return to New Zealand, having supported Lime Cordiale on their shows at The Hunter Lounge, Christchurch Town Hall, and Auckland’s The Powerstation in June 2022. Having received some of the most enthusiastic responses from audiences they have ever played to, adding NZ shows as part of the MIDNIGHT DRIVING tour was a must-do for the Dads.
