Gig Information

ASTRAL PEOPLE and Handsome Tours are excited to announce Injury Reserve for their first ever Australia and New Zealand tour this June 2019.

Injury Reserve play Wellingtons Meow on Friday 7 June.

The rap trio from Phoenix have started the year off with a bang, dropping track Jawbreaker in January and now they’re back with new single Jailbreak The Tesla feat. Amine.

Injury Reserve, who recorded their debut mixtape in a dentists office (and titled it Live from the Dentist Office), have had an interesting journey from the USA suburbs to a coveted A MINUS from Robert Christgau, the Dean of American rock critics, in his column for Noisey. From playing house shows to being played on Beats 1 Radio by Ebro. How did it all happen What makes producer Parker Corey and rappers Stepa J. Groggs and Ritchie With a T special

For Complex, its their boundary-pushing, DIY weirdness. For Billboard, their fashion sense and fearless honesty. Pigeons and Planes admires their group dynamic, calling them one of the best new groups in hip-hop, while Mass Appeal nods to their cinematic vision. Anthony Fantanos interest in their ability to balance tradition with innovation is well-documented on the Needle Drop, where he published 8/10 reviews of Live from the Dentist Office and last years Floss. The latter, a major breakthrough for the group with features from Cakes da Killa and Vic Mensa, is energetic, refined, and in Christgaus words, the most unpretentious hip-hop you ever heard.

They moved their studio from the Phoenix dental office where Corey’s grandfather practices to a house in Altadena, California. Following a sold out world tour, they inked a new deal with legendary A&R Hip-Hop as part of Loma Vista Recordings.

Fresh off the back of a huge SXSW show, Injury Reserve will be bringing their unique sound with their trademark energy to our antipodean shores.
