Press release:

The Supersuckers are pleased to announce that Sticky Filth will be playing with them on the gigs in Raglan and Auckland The pioneers of New Zealand punk and hardcore, Sticky Filth are back on tour! Having just completed a five-date North Island Tour at the end of 2018, Sticky Filth with Craig Radford on vocals and bass, Chris Snowdon on guitar and vocals and Mark ‘Boot’ Hill on Drums, will be playing venues in Auckland & Raglan, during Feb 2019.

One of New Zealand’s most iconic bands, Sticky Filth have been playing for over thirty years and have released four albums, two EP’s, singles, and rare early recordings that are sought after by collectors the world over.

Sticky Filth’s evocations of provincial punk and working class life are among New Zealand’s finest, and most honest, and the sound they make – punk power chords raining down to a howling vocal and constant beat – one of the most distinct and timeless. Sticky Filth continues to deliver new material that becomes the anthems of today’s generations. They have toured Australia twice, played more New Zealand shows than they can remember and released the country’s finest catalogue of metallic punk and dirty rock n’roll.

Playing support for Motorhead, Stiff Little Fingers, Bad Brains, Henry Rollins and many more internationals cemented Sticky Filth as one of New Zealand’s best live acts, and here they are now, touring a venue near you!

The band is looking forward to playing these shows and grateful for the support they have received through the years. They look forward to seeing old friends and new faces – if you havn’t seen Sticky Filth live, now is your best opportunity!
