‘The Stiffys Go Driving’ tour sees Melbourne’s Art Rock pioneers back on the road after a massive year – which included 50 shows across the country, the release of widely acclaimed ART ROCK ONE and the addition of a guitarist.
The band will venture beyond its usual capital city fan base thanks to new guitarist Dev owning a car, explains bassist Jason Leigh.
“IT’S REALLY GREAT NOW THAT WE HAVE SOMEONE IN THE BAND WHO IS CAPABLE OF DRIVING BECAUSE ADAM AND I ARE BOTH QUITE FOCUSSED ON ENJOYING THE ROCK AND ROLL LIFESTYLE.”
“IT’S BEEN A LOT EASIER FOR US TO TOUR REGIONAL AUSTRALIA SINCE WE TRANSITIONED FROM SAILORS TO ASTRONAUTS AND I THINK PEOPLE ARE BECOMING LESS CONFUSED BY US.”
‘The Stiffys Go Driving’ tour will see the band visit Belgrave, Moruya (NSW) and Kyneton for the first time while returning to Ballarat, Canberra, Fitzroy,
Warrnambool and Wollongong.
These will be The Stiffys’ last shows before heading back into the studio to record ART ROCK TWO, says drummer Adam Stagg.
“WE’RE PLANNING ON HAVING AN EXTRA GREAT TIME ON THIS TOUR BEFORE WE GO INTO LOCKDOWN FOR A WHILE TO WRITE SOME MORE BANGERS AND MAKE HITS.”
“BEING ON THE ROAD IS A LOT MORE COST EFFECTIVE FOR US AS A BAND BECAUSE OF THE FREE DRINKS I MEAN BACK HOME A CASE OF WHITE WINE COSTS NEARLY THIRTY DOLLARS AND IF YOU DO THAT EVERY DAY IT REALLY ADDS UP.”
