The long running Austin/San Antonio based cowpunk band roll into 2015 with numerous regional appearances. The Hickoids were inducted to the Austin Music Hall of Fame and also celebrated the 30th anniversary of their first show in March 2014. Since re-forming in 2008 the band has released two full length albums and played over 250 shows in 11 U.S. states and 9 Western European countries. On the eve of their second European tour guitarist Davy Jones was forced to forego the trip after being diagnosed with cancer in mid-May 2014, missing shows for the first time after a string of 600-plus appearances with the Hickoids over the past 29 years. Cody Richardson of Chief Fuzzer and Pure Luck fills in for him on the band’s current schedule of commitments. The core band of Jones, Rice Moorehead (bass), Lance Farley (drums), Tom Trusnovic (guitar) and Jeff Smith (vocals) continue work on an album of covers by Texas artists including Terry Allen, Doug Sahm and Roky Erickson tentatively titled “The Out Of Towners”.
