New York hardcore punk legends, H2O, are heading to NZ for the very first time in support of their sixth studio album 'Use Your Voice'.
Since their inception over 21 years ago, H2O’s origins remain the wishful lore of any mid-1990s New York hardcore kid. Over the years, they have toured the world countless times, releasing classic albums, inspiring countless others in their wake. This will be their first time to NZ!
Their latest offering, 'Use Your Voice', an album 7 years in the making, showcase H2O at their energetic and melodic best. Guitarist/Vocalist Adam Blake adds, “The point was not to stray too far away. If we couldn’t visualise an audience dancing or going off, then it’d be cut from the record.”
Continuing to deliver his direct and personal manifestos on Use Your Voice, frontman Toby Morse provides a personable biography of sorts, with subjects spanning fatherhood, romantic relationships, music fandom, social media, philosophy and more.
Twenty-one years and six albums later, H2O have proved that a solid bond, great music and chaotic live shows can create wonders on every edge of the globe. And now it's finally NZ's turn!
