BANISHED MUSIC & STRANGE NEWS PRESENTS:
PERFUME GENIUS with special guests Hand Habits

Banished Music presale 9am Friday 22nd April*
General tickets on sale Monday 25th April from AAA Ticketing

Mike Hadreas and his band bring the electrifying Perfume Genius live show to Aotearoa this winter, performing in Auckland at the Powerstation on June 6 & Wellington at San Fran on June 7.
The bold and tender artistic practice of Perfume Genius embodies fragility and empowerment, love and sexuality, trauma and triumph, with emotional honesty and rock-star swagger.

Returning to New Zealand for the first time since 2018, where he performed two mesmerising festival performances alongside Aldous Harding, Perfume Genius will be sharing songs from Set My Heart On Fire Immediately (Matador Records / Remote Control 2020),his beloved previous four albums, and his upcoming album Ugly Season (out June 17).
Opening for Perfume Genius will be Hand Habits, aka Los Angeles musician Meg Duffy performing songs from their brilliant art-pop album Fun House (Milk! Records / Remote Control 2021) with a full band for the first time in New Zealand.

Set My Heart on Fire Immediately saw Perfume Genius explore themes of queerness, with homages to 80s pop, classic rock, synth-pop, funk, shoegaze and many other genres. Appearing on 2020 end of year lists by TIME Magazine, New York Times, Variety, Entertainment Weekly, Pitchfork, Billboard, The New Yorker, Vogue, NPR, Stereogum and many others, the album was produced by GRAMMY-winning producer Blake Mills and features contributions from musicians Jim Keltner, Pino Palladino, Matt Chamberlin and Rob Moose. It was recorded in Los Angeles, where Perfume Genius settled in 2017 with longtime partner and musical collaborator Alan Wyffels. The album explores and subverts concepts of masculinity and traditional roles, and introduces decidedly American musical influences.

In the wake of Set My Heart On Fire Immediately, Hadreas appeared on JIMMY KIMMEL LIVE!, played a global live stream from The Palace Theater in downtown Los Angeles and announced the publication of Immediately, the book companion to the new album featuring iconic portraits of Perfume Genius by celebrated French photographer Camille Vivier. Perfume Genius has also appeared on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert performing ‘Whole Life’ for their #PlayAtHome series and on Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon where he performed ‘On The Floor’ and ‘Jason’.
These shows in Aotearoa will be an incredible opportunity for fans to hear their favourites, as well as get an early live preview of songs from the upcoming record.
