CKY Announce NZ Shows

Wednesday 16th June, 2010 4:41PM

They've been together since 1998 and yet, despite playing in Australia in 2006, American metal band CKY have never played in New Zealand. Since we can only assume that you've already seen the above headline, you will now know that that is soon going to change.

The band has announced three shows here in August, including an all ages show in Auckland, and you can get tickets from right HERE at UTR.

PRESS RELEASE

Bodega, Wellington (18+) - Friday August 6th
The King's Arms, Auckland (18+) - Saturday August 7th
The Basement, Auckland (All Ages) - Sunday August 8th

RW Entertainment and New Noise presents

CKY New Zealand Tour 2010

CKY don't make compromises - it's as simple as that. They've spent 13 years making sure that both their fans and detractors know it. Lesser bands might not have even emerged from the small Pennsylvania town it's members met in, let alone crafted their deeply original blends of the experimental and familiar, of metal and rock.

In the band's own words “cKy’s goal is clear: To force change within the music industry and bring rock back to an acceptable state.” After the writing for their 4th album almost ended the band, cKy instead refocused and gathered anew behind this mission, and released Carver City in 2009. Following this, and after a triumphant visit to Australian shores in 2006, RW Entertainment are proud to bring cKy to New Zealand for the first time. 2010 will be a year The Alliance will not soon forget!

"It's been way too long since we last played Australia. We had such an amazing time on our 2006 tour - I can't wait to get back. Especially playing New Zealand for the first time!" - Jess Margera
