To celebrate their tour kicking off, the band have released a rockin’ 2022 version of their 1998 breakout single ‘Sweater’, check it out here.

Lead singer Kav Temperley says, “We haven’t played Sweater since 2002 at Fowlers Live Adelaide, but since that day not a single show has gone by where someone hasn’t yelled out ‘play Sweater’. It has become almost sacred to the OG Eskies fans, so for all of you who’ve been waiting for this moment please enjoy this 2022 version of Sweater we’ve put together. And for those coming along to join us on our national Black Fingernails Red Wine In The City tour in a few weeks’ time if you are lucky we might be playing this one in our encore.” – Kav Temperley
