One of Australia's most beloved bands has taken to Facebook today to announce their 'Indefinite hiatus' citing 'internal issues in the band'
Sticky Fingers have taken to Facebook to announce that they are breaking up and going on an “indefinite hiatus”, announcing they will finish the shows they have booked over New Years to the best of their ability then after that they are calling it quits!
Sticky Fingers were a reggae fusion/indie rock band formed in Sydney, Australia in 2008. After the release of Caress Your Soul, the band's debut album in 2013, featuring tracks such as 'Australia Street' they quickly became big influencers on Australian music. The band also helped path the way for fellow musicians such as Bootleg Rascal, Lyall Maloney and new comers Gold Member.
To be honest this doesn’t come as quite a shock as there was a rumoured split in 2015. The band had a huge success this year after releasing their third album ‘Westaway’(The Glitter & the Slums) which went straight to number one.
“For some time we’ve been dealing with some internal issues in the band,” they write.
“They’ve heightened to the point where it’s not fair to anyone involved for us not to do something. We have looked for help to try to get through this and will continue to do so.
“As a result we’re going to try to finish the shows we have booked over New Years to the best of our ability – then the band will be going on an indefinite hiatus.”
They continue to apologise “to anyone that has been effected by this”.
Sticky Fingers are set to play, Lost Paradise in New South Wales, Beyond The Valley in Victoria and Southbound in WA over New Year’s. Next year they are set to play at Party In The Paddock in February with some dates booked in the US and Canada throughout March.
