Gomez To Tour NZ In October

Thursday 6th August, 2009 12:00PM

Gomez are heading back to NZ to play 3 shows this October in support of recently released 6th album A New Tide.

In October 2008, Gomez celebrated the 10th anniversary of their Mercury Prize-winning debut, Bring It On. In the decade since, Gomez has stood apart from their peers, earning critical praise and an ever-growing fanbase for their eclectic and ambitious music. And finally, the band is bringing it on again for their ardent supporters here in New Zealand.

While the band members are now scattered across two continents, from Brooklyn to Brighton, England (the bandís Ben Ottewell and Ian Ball have each performed multiple solo tours in both the US and the UK), Gomez have recently released their 6th album.

A New Tide is an amazing collection showing the bandís longstanding collaborative relationship at its incomparable best. Marking a return to the British groupís more experimental roots, there is a wide range of styles incorporated into Gomezís matchless musical brew. Flavours of Delta blues, psychedelia, and Krautrock all come into play, resulting in a musically mischievous and remarkably forward-thinking collection.

The Bedford, Christchurch - Fri 16th Oct
Opera House, Wellington - Sat 17th Oct
The Powerstation, Auckland - Sun 18th Oct

Tickets from Ticketmaster and Real Groovy (Ticketek for Wellington).
