Broods are back and they’re celebrating by bringing their 'Don’t Feed the Pop Monster' tour home to New Zealand.
The Nelson-bred, LA-based duo will release their third album 'Don’t Feed the Pop Monster' on February 1, and to mark the occasion, they are playing at the Christchurch Town Hall on Tuesday, May 14 and at the Auckland Town Hall on Thursday, May 16. Both shows are all-ages.
Presented by Eccles Entertainment and ZM, tickets are on sale on Tuesday, January 29 at noon.
Broods returned to the fold in 2018 with new music and a new focus - after years of navigating the pop landscape, they wanted to get back to embracing their purest instincts and “make songs that were true to us, without hiding behind any kind of facade” says frontwoman, Georgia Nott, who co-founded Broods with her brother Caleb in 2013. “Instead of overthinking everything like, Is that too weird? or Does this make enough sense?, we made a point of just completely trusting in ourselves and trusting in each other.”
The first two singles from the upcoming album ‘Peach’ and ‘Everything Goes (Wow)’ were met with critical acclaim (‘Peach’ has had more than 15 million streams).
The duo followed it up with their latest single ‘Hospitalized’ - a bright and shimmering track about longing for a break from emotional accountability.

On the new album Don’t Feed the Pop Monster, Broods reunited with their longtime producer Joel Little (Khalid, Lorde, Imagine Dragons) and also enlisted producers like Tommy English (BØRNS, K.Flay). At turns ethereal and frantic, moody and euphoric, the result is an album that’s elegantly sculpted yet defies all pop convention.
“ …this album is by far their greatest achievement. It's fun, bursting with life, sounds unlike anything else circling the highly saturated pop sphere right now…” – stuff.co.nz
Most recently, Taylor Swift personally invited Broods to join her Reputation Stadium tour across Australia & NZ. Broods have also supported Sam Smith on a sold-out US tour, played leading festivals like Coachella, Lollapalooza and Outside Lands and shared stages with artists like Ellie Goulding, Haim, and Chvrches.
Born into an exceptionally musical family, Georgia and Caleb had their breakthrough as Broods with the 2014 single ‘Bridges’. That track appeared on their Joel Little-produced full-length debut Evergreen, an album that debuted at #1 on the New Zealand Albums Chart and #5 on the Australian Albums Chart.
With Evergreen winning four prizes at the 2015 Vodafone New Zealand Music Awards (including Album of the Year), Broods released Conscious in june 2016 and soon saw lead single ‘Free' hit the top #10 on Spotify’s US Viral Chart. Conscious went on to win five New Zealand Music Awards (including Album of the Year - back-to-back Album of the Year awards for Broods).
Now Broods are bringing their new music home and can’t wait to reveal their new live show to their much-loved Kiwi fans.
