Soaked Oats add Australian dates to tour

Soaked Oats have already begun their 13 stop tour around Aotearoa, spreading their slinky sludge pop across our shores with a mixture of festival appearances and headline shows. The band now announce they are shooting across the ditch for a four-stop, five-date tour for our Australian neighbours with shows in Melbourne, Canberra, Wollongong, and Sydney.

The 'Shuggah Doom Tour' coincides with the announcement of a new single 'Shuggah Doom' set for release Thursday Jan 31st, with an accompanying music video from NZ alterna-video guru director, Jake Munro (Avantdale Bowling Club, Marlin's Dreaming, Yukon Era).

Soaked Oats have just stepped off the plane returning from a successful US tour where they travelled in excess of 10,000 miles in a 1980s RV, called "The Driftwood", to play 20 shows to the far reaches of the land of Milk & Honey. With no time to rest on their laurels and with the sweet taste of camper-van touring fresh at hand, the boys have picked up an NZ version of The Driftwood - although yet to be named. This summer tour has already taken in Gizzy's Rhythm and Vines, Coromandel, Mount Maunganui and Taupō.

With plenty of dates to come and a slew of talent lined up to support the boys at each of the NZ shows (see below) - this is your chance to soak up the sonic fruits of their labour.
