Paquin Announce New EP And Tour

Tuesday 16th July, 2013 10:12AM

Auckland electro-pop outfit Paquin have announced they will release their second EP, entitled II, in August.  As the title suggests, the EP is their second release,  following up their debut EP I released in 2011, and is part of a trilogy with a third to follow. Songwriter Tom Healy, who has produced for such acts as Die! Die! Die! and Popstrangers, will also tour with a live band in support of the new record. Current members Stuart Harwood and Westley Holdsworth will be joined by bassist Cass Basil (Tiny Ruins, Bannerman).

See below for their upcoming tour dates and here is the first single from the new EP - 'Glass Houses'  - available for free download via their bandcamp.

PRESS RELEASE:

Following the release of their first EP 'I' in 2011, Paquin releases 'II' the 2nd instalment of their triple EP project on the 23 August. The EP features the first single "GUNN", which was well received by many a set of ears earlier in the year, and the brand new single "Glass Houses."

Paquin is the musical outlet of songwriter Tom Healy, producer for the likes of Die!Die!Die! and Popstrangers. 'II' was recorded at the band’s home base and recording studio, The Lab, in 2012. In contrast to 'I', which was conceived largely as a solo project, 'II' was arranged and performed by the live band, and showcases a movement towards a more dance orientated style of music. Joining the band for their upcoming tour is bassist Cass Basil (Tiny Ruins, Bannerman) who joins the existing line up of Tom Healy, Stuart Harwood and Westley Holdsworth.

'II' will be available on CD and online from the 23 August 2013.
