Hogan’s Goat Revamps Classic Southern Rowdiness in “Shit Kicker”

(April 17th, 2018) – Nashville, TN’s iconic rockers in Hogan’s Goat have released the official music video for their grooving infectious single “Shit Kicker, ” which originally premiered via The Gauntlet. “Shit Kicker,” which comes from the band’s self-titled debut, is an exercise in revitalizing amplification: a much needed gentrification and modification of southern suavity meets Nashville-tinged grit and groove- with a music video to match in every possible way.

“We went out to Montana, fucked around, and summoned the spirit of the ‘Shit Kicker,'” says vocalist John Salmon. “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.”

“Shit Kicker” was directed by Kaby, co-edited by Kaby and Joshua Nix, and produced by Hogan’s Goat, with featured camera work from Lyman Gillen.

With lyrical storytelling of unwavering courage and a pairing of finger-lickin’ good riffs comes inevitably infectious musicality, as such can be found both sonically and visually represented in “Shit Kicker” as well as the entirety of Hogan’s Goat. Spicy and searing, the entirety of the album is a start-to-finish course in Southern-tinged rock comforts, hell-bent on paying homage to classic iconic imagery with a revamped sound to form a seamless blend of ‘old-meets-new.’ Or, as The Gauntlet so aptly put it, a sure-fire way to “usher in a new era of music.”

…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.”
