Ivy League Records is very pleased to announce that Josh Pyke will release his third album Only Sparrows on August 19, 2011. The first single from the album No One Wants A Lover will hit airwaves on June 20 before Josh embarks on the very special Fans First tour.
Following a year off the road, Josh is back for a small run of intimate acoustic shows in Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide and Melbourne where he will play some of his new songs live for the very first time.
Members of Josh Pyke’s fan club will have the chance to purchase tickets in a presale that begins on Thursday May 26 at 9am and ends on Wednesday June 1 at 5pm before tickets go on sale to the general public on Thursday June 2 at 9am. Tickets will be sold on a first-come first-served basis, so if all tickets are sold in the presale, there will be no more available.
This is a rare chance to see Josh Pyke in small venues and it WILL SELL OUT so we recommend joining Josh’s fan club NOW at www.joshpyke.com to have the best possible chance of securing tickets.
Josh will be donating profits from the Fans First tour to Busking For Change, the event he holds annually to raise funds for the Indigenous Literacy Foundation. For more information on Busking For Change, please visit www.buskingforchange.com.au.
Only Sparrows will be Josh Pyke’s third album and follows on from his Gold selling ARIA award winning albums Memories & Dust (2007) and Chimney’s Afire (2008).
Recorded with Wayne Connolly, it promises some of Josh’s finest work yet – but more on that very, very soon. For a sneak peek, head to www.joshpyke.com for a special message from Josh himself.
