SPARKADIA: New Album + 2011 Australian Tour [Tour News]

  Having appropriately vanished following their 2009 Auf Wiedersehen tour, Sparkadia surfaced late this year to delight with the new single and surprise radio hit ‘‘Talking Like I’m Falling Down Stairs’’, and tantalised and teased us with live versions of four other brand new cuts during their run of dates around Australia with Little Red in October 2010.

Having since returned to London to complete the sophomore opus, Alex Burnett and Sparkadia are now excited to announce that the name of the forthcoming album is ‘The Great Impression’ and with it a confirmed release date of March 18th 2011 on Ivy League Records.

In further massive news Sparkadia are set to celebrate the release by way of their biggest Australian tour to date. Spanning four weeks The Great Impression tour is due to visit most major cities. Joining them in the celebration are the extraordinarily talented Operator Please and fellow Ivy League label mates, Melbourne’s Alpine.
