Riding high on the coattails of their brilliant fifth album Total Depravity, London-based outfit The Veils have lined up a string of New Zealand shows for the new year. The dates coincide with the group's appearance at the 2017 Laneway Festival, and will see them making their way around the country where they will be joined by a handpicked selection of support acts along the way.

In a statement, frontman Finn Andrews said that being based in London means the band donít get to tour New Zealand enough which makes the upcoming tour all the more special, adding: "These shows are going to be insane, I can feel it. Itís a homecoming - thereís nothing else quite like it." Here are the details...

PRESS RELEASE:

Banished Music and Under The Radar presents
THE VEILS, TOTAL DEPRAVITY NZ TOUR
Summer 2017

Hot on the heels of the release of their blistering fifth album, Total Depravity , The Veils announce their first tour of New Zealand since 2013. With a powerful set of new songs, and a hand-picked collection of support acts from NZís finest (including Dunedin luminaries The Chills; Christchurch troubadour & Noir Protagonist Delaney Davidson; and Napier noise-merchants Queens Of Beauty School), The Veils are set to return South in a blaze of glory.

Since the band premiered Axolotl, the first track from the album, with Pitchfork back in June, anticipation has built steadily for the record co-produced by El-P (Run The Jewels) and Atom Greenspan, and since its release Total Depravity has received unanimous and glorious praise worldwide.

Their latest single Low Lays The Devil was premiered by both NME and Zane Loweís Beats1 show, and was championed by Steve Lamacq heading straight on to the prestigious BBC 6 Musicís Playlist.

ďBeing based in London we donít get to tour NZ nearly enough, but that only makes this all the more special. These shows are going to be insane, I can feel it. Itís a homecoming - thereís nothing else quite like it.Ē says lead singer Finn Andrews.

Total Depravity is available on CD, Download & Deluxe Gatefold Double Vinyl that includes two bonus tracks.
