The long-awaited new album from the Hoodoo Gurus, Chariot Of The Gods, is the band's first album in over a decade and the longest interval between albums in their history.
Dave Faulkner explains "The last twelve months have been frustrating and nerve-racking for everyone but, for the Hoodoo Gurus, this dark cloud has had a silver lining. Forced to rely on ourselves instead of the outside world for validation, there has been a creative rebirth within the band that has resulted in a string of singles and a new album. Most important of all, the musical bonds between the four of us have never been stronger. When the discussions are all about which songs we're sad about having to leave off the record, that's a damn good sign. I'm tellin' ya, folks, we've got a real spring in our step right now."
For the uninitiated, Hoodoo Gurus are an alternative/garage rock band who formed in Sydney, Australia in 1981. As college radio, MTV, and the first generation of alternative rock were beginning to explode, the band were celebrated around the planet for such albums as Stoneage Romeos, Mars Needs Guitars!, Blow Your Cool!, and Magnum Cum Louder.
