SPOON announce in-store appearances for Sydney & Melbourne!
Today, Spoon announce two intimate stripped down in-store appearances to precede their shows in Sydney and Melbourne this month. The band will appear at Redeye Records in Sydney on Wednesday 22nd March, and at Polyester Records in Melbourne on Friday 24th March on the eve of their respective shows at The Metro Theatre and The Croxton Bandroom.
For the Polyester Records in-store appearance, capacity is strictly limited, so for guaranteed entry, all you need to do is preorder the new album on CD or LP either in person at the Fitzroy store or online at polyesterrecords.com to be placed on the guest list.
The Redeye Records performance will be an all ages event, first in best dressed on the day.
The in-store appearances by Britt Daniel and Alex Fischel will grant select audiences a rare glimpse of Spoon's new record Hot Thoughts at its most immediate and stripped back, marking very special performances for Australian fans and newcomers. Spoon are no strangers to our shores however, frontman Britt Daniel actually laid down the foundations for their new record in Collingwood, Melbourne.
“I love going down to Australia, but it seems we’re never able to stay for long, so I rented a house in Collingwood outside Melbourne for three weeks. That’s where most of the songs on the new record got their start. I brought a bunch of unfinished songs with me. When I got down there, I was more excited about coming up with all new stuff. I’m not sure if it’s just the AC/DC connection or what. Australia just seems like this other world. It’s like this weird combination of Texas and England.” - Britt Daniel, American Way Magazine, March 2017
Hot Thoughts will be released on Friday 17th March via Matador / Remote Control Records and is already being touted as one of the albums of the year. Produced by Spoon and Dave Fridmann, they have created the bravest, most sonically inventive work of their illustrious career. Within the space of 10 captivating songs, Hot Thoughts confirms why Spoon are one of the most critically acclaimed acts of the first decade of the new millennium.
Spoon are: singer/guitarist Britt Daniel, drummer Jim Eno, bassist Rob Pope and Alex Fischel on keyboards and guitar.
