Trinity Roots last outing was a year ago with almost 15 sold out shows from Invercargill in the South to Leigh in the North. June 2016, the inimitable three piece are set to deliver their latest album ‘Citizen’ to main centres of New Zealand.
The band will be joined in Auckland & Wellington by Ed Waaka, one of New Zealand’s hidden gems. He possesses a soul man’s voice and a poet’s soul. And joining them in Christchurch will be the power-trio Soulsystem who have been captivating audiences around the country over the last several years with their high-energy live show and distinctive blend of soul, dub and rock.
Trinity Roots are also excited to announce the return of super-cool Moog practitioner Ed Zuccollo who will be joining the band live on stage on keys.
Warren Maxwell explains his excitement for getting back out on the touring circuit, “We really want to take Citizen out on the road again. We still really love those songs and when you release an album and tour at the same time, it all zooms by so quickly, there is no time to drink it all in. We are looking forward to doing exactly that this time.”
The tour will be accompanied with a radio friendly length version album track This Road that features drummer Ben Wood’s on vocals. Ben came on board with Trinity Roots for Citizen, as an already accomplished and in demand session drummer, whose fragile and emotive voice had previously gone unnoticed.
On hearing Ben sing during the recording process Warren Maxwell had to ask “Holy Sh*t, bro, can you sing that song please?”.
Intending to play music from across the Trinity Roots catalogue alongside the latest album, Citizen, the night will be a festoon of roots hypnotica filled with harmonies and their unique signature fusion of reggae, slow-funk and jazz exploration.
