Tomorrow we head out! The summer is upon us and it’s time to play. We’ve spent a lot of time putting this new show together, as this tour will be the last around Bodyparts, before we head back into our creative lair and dream up new music.
We’ve spent a bunch of time going back through old favorites we haven’t played in years, and trying out songs from Bodyparts that we have yet to perform. The result is that we have a brand new collection of songs that feel fresh and exciting for us to play.
Bodyparts was a long labour, written while we were simultaneously busy jetting around the world and playing shows off the back of the surprise success of “Hello,” and we’re so proud that this whole long journey brought us to so many new cities and audiences.
We also have a sweepstakes with Bandsintown, giving away a pair of tickets to each show, which you can enter here: http://www.bandsintown.com/sweepstakes/92
On one of the last tours for Fixin’ To Thrill I carved 2 dragonette “D” rings out of wax and got them cast in silver. I’ve been sporting them ever since…. as you can see in the artwork for Live In This City.
I thought they could be something that other people might like to wear, So I’m getting 10 more cast in stirling silver and making them available for purchase at our shows on the upcoming tour in May and June. So if you want to do some jewellery shopping, check our tour schedule to see if we’re heading to a rock n’ roll concert venue near you!
They will cost $80 a piece… if they don’t fit your finger, they look rad on a silver chain around the neck. That’s where Dan wears the one i made for him…
We hope to see you soon, and in the meantime, enjoy the Spring!
Giddy-up we’re out the door.
