Since they first stormed the charts, heads and radio stations with their mega hit ‘This Town Ain’t Big Enough For Both Of Us’ from their 3rd studio album ‘Kimono My House’ in 1974, the two ever young Pop pioneers (https://www.forbes.com/sites/davidchiu/2020/12/30/sparks-celebrate-50-years-of-eccentric-and-influential-music-on-new-compilation/) have set themselves a unique monument with their albums and live shows. With ‘A Steady Drip, Drip, Drip’, the US duo presents the successor to their critically acclaimed 2017 album ‘Hippopotamus’, with which the SPARKS returned to the top 10 at the time, and not just as one of the best albums of the year, but also celebrated as the creation’s highlight of the band - until now. Before the SPARKS and their band (https://thequietus.com/articles/24671-sparks-live-three-songs-no-flash-kentish-town-forum) will embark on an extensive world tour in 2021, the brothers will be seen on a small European tour in October 2020. In Germany, the SPARKS will play a concert on October 15th in the Berlin Metropol.
