Well on our way!
17 MONTHS AGO
Hi all! Thanks so much for your support so far. Here is a list of what we've been working on so you can see how amped we are to make a big splash into the swimming pool of rock!
Planning and organisation for this has been huge and we have lined up specific targeting with an American (and German/Austrian/Swiss now!) PR company, also marketing to college radio, and tour press in the States.
Independent radio uptake for our soon to be released debut LP The Hill Temple has been phenomenal, with us placing at number 11 for independant and college radio playlist adds across the United States.
This is serious traction and means that booking agent and record label representatives will be actively seeking us out to see what we are made of live at SXSW. Which is great as we’ve been rehearsing hard and have a seriously badass show to deliver when we get there.
Among our packed tour dates we have a couple of great gigs with Chai from Nagoya, Japan in San Francisco, and a wicked gig with alt legends Royal Trux at the Echo on Sunset Boulevard LA.
Our Berlin based PR representatives handle quality clients (Dandy Warhols, Brian Jonestown Massacre) and are pushing for major exposure across parts of Europe for promo video broadcasts of our pending single Sight Beyond the Line, and the following LP.
The New Zealand Music Commision is also behind us, with tons of help and advice, and hosting us at the Official NZ Showcase concert at SXSW.
Also, we just played a ripper of a show at the King's Arms in the weekend, check out the great pic from Dave Simpson.
Thanks everyone for again for your support and please share in your networks so we can hit our targets and show the world the amazing music that is coming out of NZ!
