Clouds & Cream Tour

Clouds & Cream is our second single off forthcoming album Caress Your Hole, I mean, Soul. We were all wrapped to see the song getting love from the J's and doing well on the charts, so the boys thought it'd be rude not to go on tour again. 
We'll be kicking it off on NYE at Woodford Folk Festival, performing at midnight for the new year countdown. We've had some of our loosest experiences at Woodfordia, so we're gobsmacked that they'd let us legheads back! Aside from the party, we've met some real dudes at Woodford and built a strong live show so we're real stoked to be hitting the countdown and really greatful to the festival organizers who are no doubt the biggest chillers in Oz. Oh, and if you're reading this Marz, please don't run up on stage this year. Ta
Having just been announced as one of Triple J's Next Crop, I think the lads are more excited than ever to hit the road, though it'd be great to have the C&C videoclip released. Luckily, for everyone's sake it'll be out this week so stay tuned brudaz.  
This tour's gonna be a real catch up session with all ours fans who have turned out to be more like family. Particularly keen to sink a few with Teeps from Radelaide and to send back some chilli shots with the crew down in Rye. Churrr. Will be good to see all our brudaz so don't be shy and come have a chat.
Yours sincerely but not faithfully,

Probably could've mentioned the tour dates as well. Er!

Caress Your Mole

We’re currently running flat-strap around the country doing what we do and feeling plenty of love in return! ‘Caress Your Soul’ is enjoying high rotation on the Jays and we’re all smiles, well some laughs and some other shit as well but you know - in keeping with the expression. 
We can always use the help of you guys though, so if you wanna keep hearing it on the radio, give it a super request! Also gotta give big ups to Triple J for the high rotation action.

Last night was an awesome gig selling out The Joynt in Brisbane, hope you guys enjoyed it as much as we did. So much good energy filling the air. Next up is WA! From the 27th – 30th we’ll be playing for you guys and then heading down to VIC from the 4th – 6th of October.

Hope to see some new and familiar faces at the gigs over the weekend, and for the rest of the tour. We’re playing in Byron tonight!! Coolie soon heres the link to get your tix:

Caress Your Bowl

We think this could be the best Sticky tour yet, with "Caress Your Soul" hitting No. 1 on the Australian independent releases chart - not quite sure what that means - and doing alright rotation wise on Triple J for the past three weeks and  .... plus it's gonna be the last major tour for the year.

A couple of lots of tickets are on sale now, for the Workers Club  go here:

as well as for the Gov in Adelaide - hit up the Gov site - so if you get the chance grab your ticket now.

'There is something good about finding a band just as honest as Sticky Fingers high on the triple j rotation list. Another with that loose reggae feeling underpinning Caress Your Soul (Independant), which works as pop music, but not the disposable kind.'  - Drum Media, 7 August 2012.

'Sticky Fingers; they may be mental, but I'll forgive them if they keep making records like this' - 1SONGADAY BLOG

'When I read your track titles, I'm all like, "Eww dirty cock-rock band". And then I listen to your songs and I go, "Wow! Super talented chaps with great songs!". Keep the surprises coming!'
- Gemma Pike, Triple J

'Solid tune! these lads have been showing steady progression over the past few years, and this song has nailed it!'
- Nick Findlay, Triple J

'Man, how are you guys so consistent? This new single is such a tight jam full of crystal production and straight up cool charm. I'm a huge fan.'
- Dave Ruby Howe, Triple J

On the weekend before last we cruised down king street. LOOSE sticky live gig on the back of a fire truck, with booze, car bombing, last minute changes and all round chaos. It almost didn’t happen which is a long story, won’t go into here, a few other bits of typical stickiness but in the end it was a blast, easily one of the funnest gigs we've ever done. There’s more footage on the net which we'll link you up to later.

Yo, Hollywood here,
So in the studio. Sitting here writing about it. Watching dizza bust out some choice vocal tracks. Been here all week with some serious meat being laid down by all the band. We recorded 14 demos over a few days which were a collection of songs from 1 year old to written just days before pre-production, more than half are fresh, BOOM! Really turned on by this batch of songs with some real standout numbers. We'll be hitting the road and trying them out in June.

a Couple new dates ...

Allo everybody, what's happening? it's Paddy here, bass player/ unofficially best looking member oh dem Sticky Fingers. We've been keeping real busy since wrapping up on the 2QETUILAZ tour with it's odd 40 shows of late 2011/ early 2012. For those who couldn't figure out how to pronounce 2QETUILAZ, you say it like this: TOO-KE-TEEL-AZ ... Hollywood can't order tequila right when he's drunk. Bit of an in joke. Actually a really stupid name for a tour looking back.

We're feeling pretty hot in the studio at the moment. The band recently recorded a whopping fifteen demos. Heaps excited to show off our new material in the coming months.

This week we had to do the near impossible task of choosing our favourite six of these demos for our third & hopefully best EP, which we've decided to name CARESS YOUR SOUL ... pretty cool huh?

Next week we're heading back into the studio to re record the chosen toons extra snappy like, before mixing, mastering, & releasing them out into the wild ... CARESS YOUR SOUL is looking to be released late 2012.

Until then, we couldn't resist the urge to play a few shows ...
JUNE | Fri 15 | *to be announced* | Adelaide, S.A
JUNE | Sat 16 | Jetty Bar | Adelaide, S.A
JUNE | Sun 17 | La Mar Surf Club | Adelaide, S.A
JUNE | Fri 22 | Sol Bar | Sunshine Coast, Q.L.D
JUNE | Sat 23 | Gt Northern | Byron Bay, N.S.W
JUNE | Sun 24 | The Joint | Brisbane, Q.L.D

Sticky surf & fistful o Newtown

Ayup, back on deck, just thought we'd let you know we're heading back into the studio at the begining of May and running thru another 5 or so songs. This is heading toward our next EP, anbd we're looking to put out a single in June then the EP later in the year. We'll be keeping you posted on that one. In the meantime, we've just wrapped the tour as Beaks' letter below says. There have also been a couple of new Sticky appearances: firstly a clip made of our Newtown festival appearance last year. It's tops. SEE IT HERE more shortly ...

2 quetilaz - letter from Beaks

If only I could remember half of what happened, that'd be cool but from what I do remember it has been the best tour so far. I mean they always keep getting better, but this time round you could really tell. We had the most amount of shows, people and fun we've ever had in the space of a month and man it was wild.

The highlights of the tour for me were the Jetty Bar in Adelaide, Indi Bar in Perth, The Espy, Baha in Rye (the best taco and music venue), The Great Northern up in Byron and last but not least Sol Bar up on the Sunshine Coast was also sick. It was our last show but also one of the best.

Apart from all the hangovers and hotel damage bills it was actually a lot of fun. Thanks to everyone that came back, to everyone that came for the first time and cheers to all the people that put us with us and showed us around their towns. We'll see you real soon.

During small breaks on this tour we managed to do some recordings. We’ve got seven tracks down and are planning on recording another seven in the next couple of weeks. We're going to pick the best 5 or 6 to make our next EP. Its been going well and all the tracks so far have come up better than expected which we're all pretty stoked about that. It’s been a long time since we last recorded and we're all excited to be getting back into it.

We're In It !!! ( Bottom left-hand corner if you squint really hard )

People and venues of WA , VIC , QLD and NSW we love you all but a big thankyou especially to the sexy people at the Espy , Baha and Indi Bar for all your love so far.
Sydneysiders you are not forgotton though and are in for a treat this weekend with a performance tonight at the Go Here, Go There Festival at the Kings Cross Hotel and another one tomorrow at the not so secret, Secret Garden Festival. Amongst the touring we're are also hitting the studio next Tuesday to record some demos and then back on the road hitting up Queensland in April. Also in late April we're looking forward to some co-headlined shows at the Beach Rd. Hotel and Mona Vale Hotel with King Tide and Lime Cordiale respectively.
And once again a big thankyou to Kath McCabe for your write-up you in the Sydney Daily Telegraph. Pretty stoked with being compared to the likes of Matt Corby , Lanie Lane and our good mates the Underlights and Rufus. And a good review with our Happy Endings EP showcasing 'bizarre fusion of reggae , psychedelia and surf folk'. Cheers Kathy, you're great.
Don't be shy at our shows - come say hi , permanent marker in hand. We dare you !

Jurassic lounging, Western jaunting

WA this weekend, and we're stinging to get there. Well, in Hollywoods case, as stinging as the couch ridden can be. We're waking him up special for this one!

Thurs Mar 01 Indi Bar Perth WA,

and ... the rest ...
2012 has been a Sticky swirl so far with already two state border crossings and many more to come on the 2Qetuilaz Tour.
Radelaide turned the hospitality (and some neat looking party people), oon. On.
And thanks to the north of the bridge Crowie Hoey hotel last for welcoming us with open arms to your local as part of the SLAM movement - a very good cause in our opinion.
Our single Sydney show at the Jurassic Lounge (at the Australian Museum), last night went nuts as well. A stock of good people, yes I'm thinking of you, Anton, Marco and Nick and Stylish.
And all you Sydney siders if you get the telegraph you would have seen us being compared to the likes of Matt Corby , Lanie Lane and our good mates the Underlights and Rufus this week. And a good review with our Happy Endings EP showcasing 'bizarre fusion of reggae , psychedelia and surf folk'. Cheers Kathy, you're great.
So come say hi at our next gig and we'll happily sign any body part of your choosing.
