Holy Moly is a four piece American cowpunk band from Fort Worth, Texas. The band is the brainchild of frontman Joe Rose and guitarist Danny Weaver. The two have played together for the past six years, and they started Holy Moly in 2005. Shortly after the forming they released their self-titled first LP, “Holy Moly.” 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 which joined the band in time to record the second album, “Drinkin’ Druggin’ and Lovin’”. 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 and even larger audience, and win "Album of the Year" in the Fort Worth Weekly Music Awards.
Holy Moly's third album, "Clickity Clack," continues the toe-tapping rhythms and lyrics both heartfelt and hilarious.
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. What’s this needle, you might ask? This needle is the vehicle in which HM inserts its message, wraps it up and then lets it roll out all over the listener’s car stereo or beer drenched bar stool.
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 will be touring America and beyond in 2009.
