AUGUST 1. 2019
Hey Amigos - this is a long overdue update to our website and we’ve got exciting news - we’re heading out on tour starting tomorrow in support of our new album ‘All The World’s A Dressing Room: Live in L.A. 08.24.2018’.
The album is sort of an authorized bootleg, grabbed from a bit-torrent file sharing site and remastered with some dead-air cut out but otherwise it is the entire show as it went down, warts ‘n all...75 minutes of pure raunch’n’roll (with a healthy side of sick humor) captured at Cafe NELA in Los Angeles last summer. It debuts on all the major streaming sites tomorrow (please add like and share wherever possible - we won’t launch into the whole streaming debate here but it does help our perception, if nothing el$e.)
As to the physical formats - we’ll have the black vinyl Double LP edition (yes, that’s right two 12’ records in a single sleeve w/download card) and single jewel case Compact Disc editions available at the shows. The limited edition of 150 violet vinyl is available for pre-order exclusively from our Bandcamp site, as is the CD. ALL orders of physical product receive an immediate permanent download of the album but won’t ship until September 3, 2019 when we’re back from tour. We’ve uploaded a couple of songs from the album on ReverbNation (player at left) and here’s the link for Bandcamp pre-orders: https://hickoids.bandcamp.com/…/all-the-worlds-a-dressing-r…
Now, the tour...we kick it off on the East Coast this weekend, then head to Spain and France for a dozen shows and some recording in Barcelona with Mike Mariconda at Sol de Sants Studio. Then, we play some regional dates out to out appearance at this year’s Muddy Roots Festival in Cookeville, TN. (All the dates are below with the best information we currently have.) Please tell your friends here and there that might be interested in seeing us, or maybe send a prudish relative you just want to pull a fast one on. Hope to see y’all somewhere.
cheers, the Hickoids
