In Fassberg where they headlined before a crowd of about 7000 people, Norderstedt and Dithmarscher Rock Festivals with Royal Republic and Stereolove in August and a spectacular live show held as part of Berlin Fashion Week in October 2012, the band also travelled to China for festival dates in this market and also undertook a large volume of live shows in Ireland including.

A number of dates with their friend & colleague Bressie. HOGAN culminated its live diary for 2012 by selling out its headline show on 27th October at Academy 2, Dublin in two weeks or less!

All this and HOGAN still managed to commence writing their new album and release One of the best radio singles of the year in “No, No, No”. The single cracked the Top 40 of the Irish airplay charts in October, first day Number 13 of Irish ITunes Charts and was chosen as the UTV Irish single of the month in September 2012 reaching a collective radio audience of 1,000,000 people!

The single "No, No, No" was recorded at Modern World Studios near to London with Greg Haver producing (Manic Street Preachers, Lost Prophets, Super Furry Animals and many more). Greg is also working with HOGAN on their new album.

Mark, Ronan, Wayne & Johnny cannot wait to get stuck in. The new single will be coming your way in April, ahead of the band traveling back to China for further live shows. Home wise in the short term the band can be seen live at the 2013 Teen Aware Concert on March 29th (Good Friday), taking place at Kilbeggan Racecourse, Co.Westmeath. Other live dates are currently being planned to coincide with the new Release and a busy summer festival season are also expected.

HOGAN is a band that is constantly evolving music wise & quite clearly not keen on staying in one place for too long or said in another way…. LOVE touring.
