Sticky Fingers have had their 2016 national tour plans plastered on the internet as a Sydney show from the band leaked and went on sale today.
Renowned for selling out shows before they’re even announced, Sticky Fingers are set to perform at Sydney’s Enmore Theatre in April, with more Aussie shows still to be announced for the same month.
A Facebook event page for StiFi’s upcoming Sydney show says the band “are coming back to home soil with a full national tour planned for April 2016”.
The group’s booking manager, Neal Hunt, says the Sydney show “leaked out” and has accidentally gone on sale.
More shows are set to be announced for the tour over the coming weeks, with “around eight or nine” to be booked all up. Those future announcements “won’t be secret at all”, thankfully, but Hunt says the band “won’t be in Australia much next year”.
Sticky Fingers have spent much of 2015 working on their third studio album, which is set for release in October next year according to the above Facebook event page.
The follow-up to last year’s Land Of Pleasure is “taking slightly longer than anticipated”, but the band recently told triple j they’re excited about a shift in direction.
“Land Of Pleasure was different from [2013 debut album] Caress Your Soul and this one, once again, is sounding really different,” says bassist Paddy Cornwall. “So we’re pretty excited to get into a big dope studio with [producer] Dr Dan Hume in December/January and smashing it out.”
