The Stiffys Go Boogie Boarding

"We used to just sing about stiffies but we’ve sort of outgrown that – we’ve matured as artists” – Jason Leigh, Bass player of The Stiffys

Melbourne rock and roll two-piece The Stiffys will tour the east coast throughout February/March to launch their second EP – ‘WE ARE GROOVY BOYS' and to celebrate they're releasing a taste in the form of new single 'Boogie Boarding'.

The success of their national 'Champagne' single tour late last year earned them the support slot for "Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!" star David Liebe Hart’s Australian tour, followed by mini tours to Sydney, Brisbane and Adelaide.

In their off-time the band began filming and selling exercise videotapes on eBay and ran an uninvited fundraiser for Fitzroy’s ‘The Old Bar’. 

“Our manager says that we have too much time on our hands and we have to get back out on the road for our own safety,” says Jason.

The new record is an unexpected turn for the previously erection-based duo, who decided to record in a professional studio (Melbourne’s Sing Sing) for the first time and expand their thematic content.

“This is the first time we’ve ever had a record in the shops before and we’re really excited because the ladies will probably know all the words to our songs,” - Adam Stagg, Drummer

The record mixes dance-friendly numbers ‘Champagne’ and ‘I’m Really Good At Sex Because I’m Always Doing It’ with harder rock and roll tunes ‘Boogie Boarding’, ‘Give Me All Your Cocoa Pops’ and the more sinister head banger ‘Groovy Boys’.

“Everybody does such a great job at our shows these days. I think they understand that we’re all there to have a really nice time, have a couple of drinks and crowd surf together on boogie boards.” - Adam Stagg, Drummer

GROOVY BOYS is out March 5.
