Leisure lined up two shows across Wellington and Auckland. And on the festival front, the first line-up was revealed for next year's Splore festival. And the good folk at Whammy announced the first lot of acts for their very own WhammyFest shindig.


In release news, the now Glasgow-based Auckland outfit Mason Clinic shared new single 'Some Kind Of Hero' with the promise of more new material on the way. Rising hip hop talents Shiraz & LSJ dropped their debut album Jive Days through The Grow Room collective.
