Ratatat Return To New Zealand In December

Friday 28th August, 2015 9:00AM

Brooklyn-based duo Ratatat are coming back to New Zealand in December for two shows. Having worked together since college days, Evan Mast and Mike Shroud have spent the last 14 years perfecting their unique brand of avant-garde electro-rock, and with their highly-acclaimed fifth album Magnifique having hit shelves a few months ago the pair are set to return to these shores for what will no doubt be a mind-blowing live set. Here are the details...


Ratatat - NewZealique2015

Wednesday 9th December, San Fran, Wellington
Thursday 10th December, The Studio, Auckland

Tickets available HERE at UTR

Check out the video for 'Amnesia', which was hand drawn by Evan...


PRESS RELEASE:

bFM and Noisey presents…
RATATAT
NewZealique2015

YES!
The multi-dimensional Ratatat are back cruising the superway and finally throttle the overdue absence as this way they now come.

MAGNIFIQUE!
The long awaited album Magnifique comes after time off drifting through the wilderness and thoroughly drives the chrome into cream.

Following up on the experimental sounds of LP3 and LP4, RATATAT return to their core guitar-driven sound on Magnifique which was recorded over the course of four years in various studios in different locations including Jamaica, upstate New York, Long Island, NY and their home studio in Brooklyn. Latest single Abrasive also features an incredible hand drawn video put together by Evan.

“Ratatat have returned with a vengeance” exclaims Fader. Leading up to the release of Magnifique, RATATAT played a string of shows across North American including an appearance at Coachella. Consequence of Sound reviewed the band’s headline show in Pomona noting “fans’ rabid reaction thought this performance spoke volumes about the outfit’s perhaps underrated impact and popularity… their 75-minute set was nothing less than explosive from beginning to end."

Already announced on the 2015 Meredith Music Festival along with the inaugural Berry Fairground in early December… now comes the first run of New Zealand club shows since their last visit around the 2011 Big Day Out run. Bring on the light majestic.

Latest album Magnifique, out now on XL Recordings.
