We're just back from ten shows in Germany and would like to thank everyone who came to see us. We had fun playing for you and look forward to the next run of dates.
We also appeared on a local television station and here is the video:
I'm pleased to say that, by request, 'Tracks' is now available as a limited run on vinyl. You'll find it here on our Shop page and in stores in certain countries. You can of course pick up a copy from one of our gigs and save on postage.
Our next run of shows is in Switzerland – April 27th, 28th and 29th. After that it's festivals in Germany, Italy and Hungary throughout the year until 12th October when we start a long tour in Holland and Germany which ends on the 5th November. You can check out all the venues on our Gigs page.
We are talking to agents in many new countries so I hope we will eventually make our way around to playing somewhere near you. My personal wish is to play as many new countries as we can.
See you out on The Road

Hello - Hope all's well with you. The HSS Spring tour of Germany runs from the 16th to the 26th March. We're very much looking forward to seeing some of you out there. On the 22nd March we'll also be playing a song live on local RNF Television from Mannheim.
Many of you have asked about vinyl releases and I'm pleased to say that a special run of 'Tracks' on high quality 180-gramme vinyl will be released in Europe on the 15th March.
You can pick up a copy of the album at one of our shows on the upcoming tour or via our website from the end of March.
We have festivals and one-off gigs booked throughout the year ending with a long European tour in October and November. As usual you'll find all the dates as they are confirmed on our website www.hundredseventysplit.com
New dates are being added all the time so we hope to be playing somewhere near you. I'm sorry to say that we have no US shows planned until the visa situation is resolved. Hopefully that will be soon.
Our planned DVD recording of the Winter 2016 tour unfortunately did not work out due to technical problems on the video side so we intend to make an audio recording on the upcoming tour.
At the end of the November 2016 tour I spent a very enjoyable couple of days as a guest of the Warwick Bass Company in Markneukirchen, Germany. Thanks to all at Warwick for their hospitality. Needless to say I've acquired yet another bass and a new Warwick amp rig which I'll be taking out on the upcoming tour. There's a well-known saying amongst musicians... 'The next instrument will be my last'.
See you out there on The Road!
