Juice TV presents emerging Wellington act Supermodel, recently returned to NZ shores from recording their debut album in the UK, and are excited to announce an extensive NZ tour to celebrate their homecoming. The hotly-tipped Wellington-based Brit pop and indie rock quartet are pumped to be back on stage after spending seven weeks recording in the legendary Modern World Studios in Tetbury, Gloucestshire, UK.
The album, produced by acclaimed Welsh record producer Greg Haver (Manic Street Preachers, Opshop) and his engineer of choice, Clint Murphy, Supermodel's debut album is skyscraper high in sound and intent. Scheduled for release early 2011 and driven by lead singer/songwriter Mark Hanify's love of theatrical show-tunes, classic rock, the great crooners, and augmented by the use of full string section and choir arrangements will solidify Supermodel as a unique sound within the international music scene.
Following recording, Supermodel performed for Feed Me Music at the oldest live music venue in London, The 100 Club and won over a capacity audience from a stage previously graced by the likes of The Rolling Stones and The Sex Pistols. Following the show, Supermodel received multiple UK/European tour offers from prestigious industry attendees.
Now back in New Zealand and happy to be home, the band is busy preparing a tour de force level stage show for this September, when in association with Juice TV, they will hit the local touring circuit to follow up on the profile lift they made during an extensive, rapturously received national tour in May, just prior to their departure to the UK.
With bigger production values, bigger sound and a new live show, this September, at R18 and all-ages shows across the country, as well as some highly anticipated ski-field performances in the South Island, Supermodel will send you dreaming. Summer is on its way and this is one band that will be everywhere, you know you want to be able to tell your friends that you were there first.
Green Like Go:
Green Like Go began in 2007 as a lighthearted Abba tribute band, formed for a one-off event. After playing together for a while, founding members Mat and Pete realised they had something special on their hands
Two years on, Green Like Go have become regular fixtures on the Christchurch live scene, playing their infectious brand of indie-pop regularly at the Dux de Lux, Al's Bar and the Bedford. Green Like Go recently released their debut EP to a packed crowd at the Dux, and first single You Came Around was No.1 on the Pulzar FM Top 30 chart for eight weeks in a row. Green Like Go have also recently supported I Am Giant and will be supporting Midnight Youth when they hit Christchurch in March.
