Genre: Slatherous

First manifested in San Francisco in January 2007, the 6 individuals that comprise the band were initially drawn together by a desire to construct the world’s largest waterslide. When funding for the project fell through in the early stages, a new plan was concocted for the formation of a Shape Shifting Orchestral Rock Band.
The fellowship was soon formalized with their adopting of the collective moniker of BATTLEHOOCH and the unleashing of their musical manifesto, the OOF OWF EP, in October 2007. The OOF OWF EP took San Francisco by storm, and practically over night Battlehooch was the hottest new band in the city.
Since then, the band has toured the west coast a number of times and released a full length LP in June of 2009 to even more acclaim!
As far as I can tell, there is no stopping them…
