My phone makes it through 2 years of touring Europe in an oversized sardine can on wheels… and then I go and lose it at Sydney airport! Being quite distressed, I decided to eat some Chinese food (as you do). Found this inside a fortune cookie and 30 minutes later my phone was handed in to lost property. Ha.
Now we’re boarding a plane for our next international adventure in Europe & the States. Fingers crossed, we’re taking this little cookie’s fortune with us. See you on the road!
It’s confirmed- we’re heading to Germany before our 2014 US tour for some summer festivals and a whole lotta strassenmusik (busking to us English speakers). Dates will be up on facebook.com/thesunpilots soon. We’ll be bringing some new music with us too.
During our hiatus this year we’ve been working on individual side projects to keep the musical juices flowing (and pay the rent). Our guitarist Bob Spencer has been spending a lot of time busking on the streets of Berlin, Germany. It’s there that he met fellow Aussie guitarist Geordie Little and soon afterwards, Little Spencer was born. The acoustic duo blend nylon and steel, percussion and effects & fingerstyle and funk to create some really intricate and rhythmic soundscapes. The street performances eventually made their way into the studio and the guys have released this great new album.
