Come along and check out two of NZ's best bands - These Four Walls and Ivy Lies!
This will most likely be These Four Walls' last Auckland show for 2011, with the remainder of the year dedicated to writing and recording their new album.
These Four Walls have spent a full year and a half touring in support of their debut album, Down Falls An Empire, including support slots for international bands Disturbed, Nickelback, Karnivool & The Butterfly Effect, and their own tours in NZ and Australia.
Now they are having a final run through NZ before they set about recording their follow-up album later in the year. Expect to hear a mix of favourites and new tracks as These Four Walls blast their way through your town.
Throw together 3 girls, give them some guitars, a bass, a drum kit and a microphone and you've got New Zealand's answer to the hottest all girl rock group… Ivy Lies. Look out as these girls are going places and they mean business!
Highway is the latest single from their debut album called 'Little Mind Games' which was released on February 28th 2011. The album was recorded in Los Angeles with famed producer Clif Magness and also in Bob Clearmountain's Studio (where the likes of Bruce Springsteen, Bryan Adams, Robbie Williams, Bon Jovi, Sheryl Crow have all recorded). Clif, a Grammy Award winning producer, has also worked with Avril Lavigne, Lisa Marie Presley, The Veronicas and Vanessa Amorosi to name a few.
The Zoup released their self titled debut EP in September of 2009, demonstrating a penchant for creating songs with sonic and vocal depth with moments of calm and chaos all twisted together in this impressive and unpredictable debut offering, featuring crowd favourites "Control" and "Missing". The EP captured the essence of the band live, which is a tornado of sounds led by a charismatic front man in Jaydn de Graaf.
