alae to tour NZ & Australia

FoIk inspired Auckland band alae are ready to take their emotive brand of soulful sound on the road once more with a headlining national New Zealand and Australian tour announced for this August and September.

Taking in some of the most intimate venues in the country, alae’s 6 date NZ tour will kick off in Christchurch and wind its way up to Auckland before the band head across the Tasman to play 4 key dates in Australia thanks to the assistance of an Outward Sound grant.

With the Taite Music Prize acknowledgement in the Best Debut release category under their belt and continued support from NZ on Air, it’s fair to say that the adoration for alae has truly ignited. Latest single Things Change has found a cozy home across commercial radio in NZ, with the video receiving over 150k plays through Facebook alone. Across the ditch, alae will play to Australian audiences for a second time.

Anticipation is running hot for next single “1 to 3” which releases in August and will be the second single from alae’s forthcoming debut album, due for release in March 2018.
