Auckland post-punk outfit Cut Off Your Hands have been announced as the support act for Pixies on all three New Zealand concert dates next month.
Fresh from a brilliant set at St. Jerome’s Laneway Festival and the release of new singles Hate Somebody and Higher Lows And Lower Highs, Cut Off Your Hands return has been greeted by fans and media with enthusiasm.
It’s less than two weeks until Pixies return to New Zealand for the first time in close to seven years. With a back catalogue that is second to none and brilliant new album Head Carrier out now, the shows promise an unforgettable night of music.
Wrapping up a glowing review late last year, The Independent’s Remfry Dedman enthuses “As the song ends and the fog begins to clear, it becomes apparent that the band have completely disappeared, leaving a completely astounded and thrilled audience. In a little under two hours, Pixies have raced through 33 songs with no fuss or fanfare, yet they’ve still managed to captivate the entire room from front to back.”
Thursday March 9th: Horncastle Arena, Christchurch
Friday March 10th: TSB Bank Arena, Wellington
Saturday March 11th: Vector Arena, Auckland
