Weekly Round Up: Friday 29th AprilFriday 29th April, 2016 3:30PM
In tour news this week, R & B artist Brandy is heading to New Zealand in June for her first ever show on these shores. Local rapper Louie Knuxx announced a nationwide tour to celebrate the release of this third album, Tiny Warm Hearts. Ladyhawke is winging her way back home for three shows in July. And Invisible Threads announced a string of shows to support the release of their new album out next month.
On the release news front, our picks this week included the brand new video premiering from Auckland trio Civil Union, who are getting ready to drop their debut album via Melted Ice Cream very soon. Yumi Zouma unveiled new song 'Barricade' from their album Yoncalla due out next month. Across the ditch Melbourne's underground supergroup Terry shared the amazing new cut 'Don't Say Sorry'. And a little further away, Mac DeMarco and his buddy Jon Lent let loose a great cover of James Taylor's 1975 tune 'I Was A Fool To Care' along with a slightly risque video.
This week's Caught Live is Iron Maiden (who are landing in NZ this weekend) performing 'The Trooper' in Shanghai just a few days ago...
And as a bonus, here's Bruce Dickinson having an on-stage tussle with a giant Eddie...
