Wolf Alice announce NZ show

Wolf Alice are returning to New Zealand this September to perform an exclusive headline show with plenty of bite!
 
The band’s roots go back to 2010, when vocalist Ellie Rowsell and guitarist Joff Oddie came together to make tunes inflected with a mix of rock, folk, grunge and shoegaze. Joel Amey (drums) and Theo Ellis (bassist) completed the group a few years later, culminating in the release of their debut EP Blush.
 
That momentum continued with the group’s debut album My Love is Cool (2015), a critical and commercial success. The gold-certified release hit #2 on the UK charts, garnered multiple nominations including the Mercury Prize and Grammys, and led to the band claiming the NME Award for Best Live Band.
 
Last year’s second record Visions of a Life, recorded in Los Angeles, took things to new heights on stellar tracks including the slow-burning ‘Don’t Delete The Kisses’, and ‘Beautifully Unconventional’ with its beast of a groove. Fittingly describing the album but also apt for the band’s power onstage, Rolling Stone asserted ‘The stakes are high, and the payoffs are real.’
 
Live is where Wolf Alice’s combination of bite and beauty is most strongly felt. The powerhouse quartet have dominated their own headline shows and supported Queens Of The Stone Age in the US and will support both Liam Gallagher in the UK and the Foo Fighters in Europe in the coming months, before embarking on a string of northern summer festivals.
 
This will be Wolf Alice’s first ever headline show in New Zealand after an electrifying set at Laneway in January of this year:
 
In amongst all this, Wolf Alice have contributed to iconic soundtracks including 2016’s Ghostbusters and T2 Trainspotting. If there’s a soundtrack though that’s simple yet dynamic, brash yet beautiful, it’s the one that the band have been carving out for themselves. You won’t want to miss out on these guys when they hit our shores again for this exclusive headline show!
