Panhead Custom Ales, Banished Music & Under The Radar presents Beastwars
10th Anniversary Tour
with special guests Earth Tongue
Tickets for Beastwars 10th Anniversary Tour are on sale now at Under The Radar with limited discounted early bird tickets on sale until GA release on Monday, February 22nd.
All tickets for the previously announced Isaac Theatre Royal show on May 15th are automatically valid for this show, or refunds can be requested from point of purchase.
The brutal and barbaric debut long-player firmly established Beastwars' reputation as one of New Zealand’s most powerful and uncompromising groups. Alongside critical acclaim both here at home and internationally it also earned them nominations at the Taite awards and the NZ Music Awards for Best Rock Album winning Best Album Artwork for the spectacular mind-melting imagery by Nick Keller.
Coinciding with the tour and to mark the anniversary, Destroy Records in association with Universal Music will repress the long out of print album on vinyl for the first time in 7 years. With collectors paying up to $300 for copies of the rare original pressing this will be welcome news to those who missed out the first time. The freshly remastered vinyl finds the band’s heavy apocalyptic howls eerily soundtracking the events of today just as well as they did a decade ago. And as a special bonus, 2 songs that did not fit onto the album have been re-recorded at Roundhead Studios and The Surgery and will be released on a limited run 7" vinyl single. The first song When I'm King can be heard here.
Beginning the tour in Mt. Maunganui before heading to the Powerstation in Auckland, Beastwars will be making their first visit back to Christchurch and Dunedin since their 4th album "IV" hit #1 in the album charts in 2019. The Wakatu Hotel in Nelson will host them the night before they take on The Hunter Lounge in Wellington almost 10 years to the night that they supported Kyuss on the same stage.
Wellington heavy psych duo Earth Tongue will open all shows with their explosive fuzz-laden stoner pop. Prepare yourself for mind-frying riff action.
Both Earth Tongue and Beastwars were due to spend 2020 touring Europe so here is a chance to see two world-class riff worshippers on the same stage.
