Weekly Round Up: Friday 4th March

Friday 4th March, 2016 5:33PM

Not much tour news floating around this week, but we did catch wind that melodic punk group The Wilhelm Scream will be coming to Auckland for one show in June. Electro-pop outfit Paquin announced a raft of South Island dates to support the release of their new EP. The epic line-up for the annual two-day Hamtown Smakdown festival was revealed. The organisers for Auckland City Limits unveiled the timetable and sitemap for the inaugural event. And last, but by no mean least, Cat Power set new dates for her New Zealand shows.


In release news, some great stuff popped up out of the blue. Auckland young guns Yukon Era shared their self-titled debut EP. The Cavemen guitarist aka Fryd Chikin revealed an awesome EP called 6 Piece Pack for streaming. Auckland native Dion Lunadon, who currently plays bass with A Place To Bury Strangers, released his solo single 'Com/Broke' along with a video. Ghost Wave shared the second single from their upcoming album Radio Norfolk. And The Kills revealed details of their upcoming album along with banging new single 'Doing It To Death'.
