To celebrate his recent album Grind State being pressed to vinyl, elusive Auckland musician P.H.F has announced a four-show tour of the country. The 12-track album follows on from 2013's full-length offering V.O.I.D and was released digitally in January through Crystal Magic Records. Described as having everything "from heart-rending synth-pop through to free-skate-mode punk-rock", Grind State is now available on wax via Pyramid Power. Here are the details for the upcoming shows...

To celebrate the vinyl release of P.H.F's AMAZING new album 'Grind State', Pyramid Power are presenting a little tour of New Zealand during the month of May!

Following 2013's grim-sugar-rush LP "V.O.I.D", P.H.F has been curtains-pulled tiny-apartment-zoning, while occasionally venturing out to play some explosive full-band live shows (one of which was @ LA's The Smell) the whole time suggestively whispering to us "Grind State Out Soon". After a year of teasing P.H.F is finally prepared to submit entry to the Grind State.

Like an all-cheats-unlocked play-through, Grind State has everything an album can be, from heart-rending synth-pop through to free-skate-mode punk-rock. Alt-leaning tempos drag the listener to the curb, as muscle-beach guitar-leads kick hard against what punk thinks is concrete. And as bearings wear, time crawls revealing bruised-synths darkly flowering over skinned knees and shredded sleeves. From love-sucks-aching to who-cares-chugging Grind State is a complete soundtrack to your infinitely-recurring post-teen nostalgia.

P.H.F has found a great night-skate spot with Grind State, located somewhere between pop-punk no-parents freedom to backlit grey-clouds 5am synth-pop reflection. With his (tm) yearning and fun-as-fuck pop-hooks P.H.F has entered a new alt-zone, maturely drinking RTD’s on the curb outside your parents house: Welcome... to the Grind State.
