Recently signed to powerhouse indie rock label, Golden Robot Records, Sydney band Flickertail, are set to hit the road in support of their upcoming single, Talk, the first track lifted from their forthcoming EP, Hurry Up and Wait, slated for release in early 2018, with shows scheduled for Sydney, Canberra, Bendigo, and Dubbo.

A four-headed Irish-Australian outfit hailing from Sydney’s Inner West, Flickertail (formerly The Bitter Sweethearts) play guitar-fuelled rock ’n roll exactly the way it’s supposed to be played. Drawing inspiration from the likes of Thin Lizzy, The Darkness, and Oasis, the band honed their sound in the garages and booze dens of Sydney before hitting the road in 2015 to showcase their unique sound at every pub, club, and backyard along Australia’s eastern coast.

Since their inception, the band have played relentlessly and are reaping the rewards. 2014’s single The End received airplay on Triple M and regional radio throughout New South Wales, Victoria, and Queensland, whilst Guinness is Thicker than Blood has been played everywhere from Bendigo to Brisbane. The tail end of 2015 saw the band landing coveted opening slots with Aussie rock heroes Buffalo and Sarah McLeod on top of endless sweaty shows with local legends Black Aces, label bro’s The Lockhearts, and Foreign Kings.  2016 saw them take their infamous zero-bullshit live show on the road once more, supporting the likes of The Casanovas and US juggernaut The Supersuckers.

In 2017 and 2018, armed with a record deal, their wits, guitars and their stunning good looks, Flickertail plan on conquering every state across this vast, thirsty continent.  Their next lot of dates are locked in for October as they get back on the road with their new single, Talk, out September 25 via digital platforms, with a national tour planned for the EP release in early 2018.
