Portlandian surf rockers Guantanamo Baywatch will head to New Zealand this October with a new album, an extra guitarist and choc-full of excitement to tour here for the first time!
Last year when Guantanamo Baywatch made their debut visit to Australia, they solidified their reputation for loose and wild shows. Their renegade energy and “don’t give a shit” ‘tude left a trail of new and old followers, broken hearts and a mountain of empty beer bottles in their wake. This time the band promise to bring all that plus more to New Zealand on the back of their Australian tour dates.
With a knack for serving up legit surf, while fucking with various sub-genres, the trio of guitarist Jason Powell, bassist Chevelle Wiseman and the happiest drummer we’ve ever seen live, Chris Scott, will unleash their newly inducted second guitarist, Jordan Owens on their fans.
Thursday 6th October: Whammy Bar, Auckland
Friday 7th October: Yot Club, Raglan
Saturday 8th October: Valhalla, Wellington
Tickets via Under The Radar and in-store at Flying Out (Auckland) or Slow Boat Records/RPM (Wellington)
