PRESS RELEASE:

HEAD LIKE A HOLE AND 8 FOOT SATIVA ANNOUNCE NEW ZEALAND NARCOCORRIDO TOUR

Brent Eccles Entertainment in association with Radio Hauraki present Head Like a Hole and 8 Foot Sativa together!

This July/August legendary New Zealand rock and metal bands Head Like a Hole and 8 Foot Sativa hit the road to celebrate the recent release of Head Like A Holes sixth album Narcocorrido (Spanish for drug ballad)

The word reunion doesn’t apply anymore for either of these bands, as they get back in the saddle, ready to rip, rock and roll around New Zealand.

Head Like a Hole have been a part of New Zealand’s rock landscape since 1990. Not many bands can say they have been round for that long! They continue to deliver album after album and have been noted as being one of the finest live rock acts to come out of New Zealand for a very long time.

Narcocorrido is a marked departure from the bombastic sabbathness of Blood Will Out. The inclusion of Simon Nichols on bass allowing Head Like a Hole to experiment in the song writing department while doing what they do best - pump out massive grooves and spit and hellfire guitar with Booga’s unique vocal style holding it all together. Showing that they are more than a one trick pony with the inclusion of songs like ‘Mexico’ and ‘Man and Steer’ this is a band writing better songs the longer they do this, while still providing the likes of ‘The Art of War’ and ‘The Rise and Fall of the Sun’ which will tear down the walls in venues around the country.

New Zealand’s premier metal band 8 Foot Sativa have risen from the wild west of Auckland becoming a household name and have created metal history in New Zealand. With a catalogue going back to 2002’s ‘Hate Made Me’ right through to 2013’s ‘The Shadow Masters’ they promise to deliver an uncompromising, raw & power filled set. With 8 Foot Sativa on the bill, this is a show that you cannot miss.

Head Like a Hole and 8 Foot Sativa will pull out all the stops to provide their own brands of unique entertainment. Both bands littering their respective sets with songs from the new & the old - you will hear all of your favourites.

Head Like A Hole and 8 Foot Sativa on stage together is the perfect storm! Do not miss these two stalwarts of New Zealand rock and metal playing ten intense shows this July and August.

Tickets available Monday 15th June from www.eventfinder.co.nz and selected * venues
