In November 2021, Hoobastank returned to Whisky a Go Go to perform to a sold-out crowd, exactly 20 years after their album release party at the same venue. The band has spent the last two decades traveling the world, creating and performing new music, and while many things changed, so many things stayed the same, including their sense of humor. Noting ups and downs both career wise and personally over the years, Hoobastank is optimistic about their future and looks forward to making more memories with fans all over the world for decades to come.
“I’ve always been super grateful for everything that we’ve done together and I don’t necessarily think that the record would sound the way it does or the songs would be the way they are had any of us been missing at that point. An amazing time in all of our lives that had one of us not been there, I don’t know if we’d be sitting here right now” shares Dan Estrin.
