After an eight-month hiatus, one of Sydney’s most explosive blues bands is back with a new EP and an extensive East Coast tour including a stop in Narooma.
‘Black Fire and Rock n Roll’ is the new EP from Frank Sultana and the Sinister Kids.
It’s an all-out rockin’ affair as the title would suggest, and it is a slight departure from what front man Frank Sultana has been doing for most of 2016.
“I wanted to get some solo work out of my system, so late last year I decided to give the band some time off,” he said. “I recorded an EP of acoustic blues songs in February and an album of darker and more intimate songs in June/July and toured pretty hard right through the whole process.”
After the quiet comes the storm, and ‘Black Fire and Rock n Roll’, is just that.
“The plan was to return with the band around this time, and I can’t wait to rock out with the Kids again,” he said.
Blistering blues and rocking riffs is what the EP is full of, and it signals a raucous return to the stage for the Sydney five-piece this Spring/Summer.
The EP is out now and the tour kicked off on September 2 at the Metro Theatre in Sydney supporting inner west legends The Whitlams.
Frank Sultana and the Sinister Kids appear at the Quarterdeck restaurant on the Narooma waterfront on Saturday, October 29.
