Carb on Carb album release tour: New Zealand

Carb on Carb are a girl and a boy from Auckland. After releasing 2 EPs and touring the country maybe more than is healthy, it was time to take for them to take a step back to write and record an album. The resulting 10-track self-titled album is a redefinition of the band; a shift towards 90s emo/pop punk, without losing their other, older influences.

The longer format (though still coming in at under half an hour) has given Carb on Carb the chance represent themselves more fully and to broach subjects important to them in a coherent context. The single ‘Not Cute, Anymore’ crystalizes some central themes of the album - coming to terms with the fact that you’re never really ready to get older, and the process of settling in to who you are and where you fit.

Self-released on digital and CD, the album is distributed in NZ by Flying Out. Carb on Carb will have limited copies of the Malaysian tape release by Toothache Splinter on tour with them.

Fresh from their tour of Australia, Singapore and Malaysia, the band will be playing around the country throughout May.
