The company revealed through a tweet that the long-beloved fictional band Off the Hook is back in action and ready to perform in Splatoon 3. The tweet mentioned that the band “scouted a few new members” and reformed as an act that called themselves ‘Damp Socks feat. Off the Hook.’
In the tweet, the company also posted a video that gives fans a first listen of their hottest new single titled ‘Candy-Coated Rocks,’ with background art of the band jamming out and having a ball of a time, along with the newly-scouted members among them.
The track sounds like your classic Splatoon music, boasting that quintessential Splatoon sound that we all know and love. This song, in particular, has hints of rock, jazz/swing, and electro-pop accompanied by high-pitched and unintelligible vocals that surprisingly go well with the tunes.
The tweet only contains a preview of the track, however, which only lasts for over a minute; it seems we will have to wait for the full game to release to jam our hearts out to this track.
Splatoon 3 is set to release on Sept. 9, 2022, for the Nintendo Switch.
