Australia’s favourite New Zealanders are reversing the trend of bad news with the announcement that they will be returning across the Tasman.
Still riding high off the release of their critically acclaimed sophomore album, Jump Rope Gazers (out now via Dew Process), the band has actually been busy on the road, thanks to New Zealand’s diligent and sensible response to COVID-19, which allowed for live music tours to once again return across Aotearoa.
The result has been jubilant crowds, lengthy write-ups in TheWashington Post of all places, and even the chance to meet their heroes, the NZ Cricket Team (we can feel Jonno still smiling from that encounter from here).
These shows are also announced shortly after the release of their most recent, and as per usual completely bloody excellent, video for ‘Mars The God Of War.’ Directed by regular collaborators Sports Team, it sees the band members pull off a Mission Impossible style heist, with no clear objective, but one of those scenes where someone rips off a mask of another person’s face – so you know it’s good.
