Kia ora! Gussie and Ezra here - together we are Wellington-based
heavy psych band Earth Tongue. We would love your support in taking
our riffs to Europe.
You may have heard our music blaring out of dive bars
around New Zealand, or maybe you've woken up with a sore
neck after moshing too hard at one of our gigs. Over the past few
years we've gathered a dedicated following around NZ and toured
Australasia multiple times. We've also been lucky enough to share
the stage with bands like Red Fang and Wolfmother.
We're passionate about this band, and we're
humbled by the way the NZ music community has received it so far.
However, with our debut full length album in the works, we feel
it's time to leave our comfort zone and get out onto the
international stage to create new contacts, grow as a band, and to
blow as many minds as possible.
Thanks to the support from our lovely fans IRL and
online, we've managed to secure an extensive string of
shows at respected venues across Europe and the UK. We have around
20 gigs planned in exciting places like Paris, Berlin and
Amsterdam, but to make this a reality we need our community
The music we play needs to be seen live. It's fuzzy, it's loud,
it's heavy - but it's actually pretty catchy, and there's a
dedicated audience for this kind of music in Europe.
There's a massive community of promoters, booking agents, bands and
record labels who are committed to every unique music scene. We
can't wait to meet like-minded people on the road and to make new
contacts in far off lands.
Europe is big. Even bigger than our riffs.
There are a lot of expenses in getting two people and instruments
across such a huge continent. There's transport, backline
(instruments), road tolls, food, accommodation...the list goes on.
But with your support, you can help us climb this beast of
a mountain. Our flights are booked and our calendar is
full - we just need a bit of help getting from A to B.
If you'd like to get in touch, you can reach us
Holy rock doggs!

Hello lovely people! Thanks so much for all your support and kind words so far. We're well on our way to making our target and making rock history!
This week has been a mammoth one for us. On top of keeping up with the churning river of emails that comes with booking an overseas tour, we've been rehearsing hard and getting new merch made for our northern hemisphere audience.
On Friday the 13th we were lucky enough to support the legendary Beastwars at their first live show in AGES. We had a fully sick time playing to a sold out crowd at San Fran. The Beastwars guys have always been really supportive of our music so a huge shout out to Nathan, Matt, Clayton and James.
Thanks again for your support and enthusiasm for the small yet ginormous force that is Earth Tongue. Please keep sharing this within your networks so we can make our target and show our work to the rest of the world.

Here we are on our last day in Wellington saying goodbye to our favourite record store, Death Ray. Big shout out to Apa for the support. He's got some tapes and t-shirts of ours in stock so swing by Newtown if you want one.
