The Hot Sprockets announce details of an end of year tour, culminating with a date at Dublin’s Vicar Street on Sunday December 21st to mark the release of their brand new EP 'Licks from the vault'. The band released their sophomore album 'Brother Nature' to critical acclaim in June, roaring in at no.11 in the Irish album charts. 'Those longing for a band to take blues to unexpected places will find this record a thing of deep joy. 8/10' Claudia Elliot, Blues Magazine UK. The Sprockets took to the road in celebration of the album with an Irish tour which finished on a high note with a sold out show in the Button Factory. They also toured the UK, Germany, Canada & USA this year, making an appearance on MTV’s 'The Real World' in Chicago. They launched their very own radio show 'Honey Skippin’ with The Hot Sprockets' on Radiomade, and their song 'Cruisin' graced our television sets as the soundtrack for the new AIB ad campaign. The place where The Hot Sprockets are at their best is on a stage, performing for an audience and November sees the start of a seven week tour of Ireland, which will take the guys right through to Christmas.
