Seminal hardcore punk group Gorilla Biscuits is heading to New Zealand next month for their first ever show on these shores. The long-overdue visit comes as the New York outfit announce a five-date tour of Australia. There is only one show slated for New Zealand, here are the details...

PRESS RELEASE:

GORILLA BISCUITS FIRST EVER NZ SHOW 2015!!

Perhaps the most quintessential band of the New York hardcore punk scene of the late 80s, Gorilla Biscuits became highly influential in the space of just one album (1989s Start Today) and EP (1988s Gorilla Biscuits).

With the group disbanding in 1992, Gorilla Biscuits briefly reunited in 1997 for a benefit at CBGBs, and played another show there on August 14, 2005 as a benefit to save the club from financial problems.

Gorilla Biscuits have never played in New Zealand before, however that is all changing with their one off New Zealand show. A show for the history books, that you will not want to miss.
