Label: Fat Wreck Chords Hoss is Lagwagon’s third full-length album, released in 1995. Between 1994 and 1998, Lagwagon released Trashed (’94), Hoss (’95), Double Plaidinum (’97), and Let’s Talk About Feelings (’98). During those 5 years, there was arguably no more talented, harder working punk band in existence. In their prime, Lagwagon aggressively toured and blazed a trail of melodic sympathy through the minds of punk enthusiasts. There was stiff competition from their successful contemporaries to capture the market share of homeless punk rockers. Green Day, Rancid, NOFX, and The Offspring each put out several quality albums during this time frame. Lagwagon understood the need for a polished sound before entering the studio and the importance of developing a global presence. Hoss has been remastered and is set for re-release along with 12 bonus outtake, acoustic, and demo tracks that have never before been released. Hoss is one of the finest punk albums released in 1995 and a must-listen in Lagwagon’s worthy discography.
