Following the rampaging success of their Californian Tour back in September, the boys were quick to take advantage of the growing enthusiasm of American crowds by returning to the States ASAP – albeit a little tiny chunk of the US floating in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.
“The American Tour in September really shocked us,” says Goon drummer Cutthroat Cowboy. “Every show descended into the biggest fucking party. Even our record label was like, ‘What the fuck? We gotta get you guys back here.’ Everyone was caught off guard by the level of support. So we knew we had to go back and keep the ball rolling.”
The Goons will play six shows in Hawaii between Dec 15-20th from Waikiki right around to the infamous North Shore, home of the island’s most famous surf breaks. “We’ll be playing on the beach at the Banzai Pipeline straight after the final of the Pipe Masters, right as the new surfing World Champ is crowned which will just be surreal,” says Cowboy. “Can you imagine that? Surf rockers playing at the Pipeline? Even Dick Dale never did that shit.”
The Goons return home on Christmas Eve and while they have played their last Aussie shows for 2009 keep your eyes peeled for good times and carnage on the summer festival circuit early in the new year.
