A sprinkle of punk, a dash of country, a breath of blues and whole lot of rock ‘n roll. Fans of old country can dance right next to punk kids in Misfits tee shirts at a Holy Moly show, and everyone has a good time.
Holy Moly is a four piece high-energy cowpunk band from Fort Worth, Texas. Formed in 2005 by frontman Joe Rose and guitarist Danny Weaver, Holy Moly quickly recorded and released their first self-titled CD. The record garnered attention in DFW and beyond, affording them the opportunities to play a multitude of shows across Texas while building a grassroots fan base every step of the way.
That fan base included a number of talented musicians, two of whom joined the band in time to record the second album. The addition of Jeremy Hull on upright bass and Joe Carpenter on drums was the kick in the pants Holy Moly needed to translate their funny and danceable songs to an even larger audience, and their next album "Drinkin' Druggin' and Lovin'" won 'Album of the Year' in the Fort Worth Weekly Music Awards.
After spending the next summer touring across America and Europe, Holy Moly headed back into the studio to record their third full-length album, "Clickity Clack." Featuring tighter arrangements and more of Joe Rose's signature storytelling lyrics, the album spawned several new live favorites such as "Hardcore Werewolf" and "Come and Get It."
It’s the audiences that help define Holy Moly’s identity. Shows are bombastic, goofy, and fun for everyone. Holy Moly’s lyrics weave a mysterious montage of zombies, one legged adulterers, and all the alcohol and drugs a healthy young person can handle. It’s rock and roll in its most honest form with a honky tonk needle helping it slide right into your heart and soul.
