Press Release:

GOLDEN AXE - LIQUID BACON 2011

Popular Auckland based electronic pop duo Golden Axe are releasing their new album Liquid Bacon in December 2011 - through critically acclaimed Czech-Republic record label AMDISCS.

Liquid Bacon is Golden Axe's fourth album, an exciting collection of irresistible pop hooks and upbeat cosmic adventures. Hot on the heels of the success of their Fantasy Footwork album (2010), Liquid Bacon sees the duo switching up & expanding their repertoire - travelling in an space/stoner metal trajectory via their feverishly catchy take on keyboard psych-pop.

Golden Axe’s previous Fantasy Footwork album contained the number one Radioscope chart hit Free Time, the accompanying Simon Ward-directed video attracting the attention and affection of the Altered Zones-lauded, Czech Republic based AMDISCS label (Teams, Rangers, Physics).

Liquid Bacon will be Golden Axe’s first international release - available from December 9 2011 on cassette or ‘pay-what-you-want’ digital download release! AMDISCS will also be producing a coloured vinyl edition of Liquid Bacon - available in February 2012.

Never a band to take a break, in the last year Golden Axe has racked up a student radio hit via their collaboration with Princess Chelsea (Sexual Angel), created an unforgettable art installation at Campus A Low Hum and performed alongside the likes of Black Dice (US).

In support of the release of Liquid Bacon, Golden Axe will be hitting the road with a brief tour of Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch (as part of the three-day Stink Magnetic label’s 13thanniversary celebrations). The Auckland release performance (with SECRETS) at the Audio Foundation will be accompanied by a special tailor-made art installation by the group. Golden Axe will be performing at the Auckland Flying Nun tribute evening in November and touring nationally with Dan Deacon in early 2012.

FUN FACTS:
