Gig Information

Wellington’s proudest sons DARTZ are back on the road in August, for a seven-city national tour in support of their upcoming single ‘Hoons’. Named NZ Student Radio’s inaugural Favourite Group for 2021 and with a recent seal of approval from NZ music legend Don McGlashan under their belt for their dumpling-centric reworking of his classic tune Dominion Road, the DARTZ boys are taking 2022 by the horns with their biggest shows yet all across Aotearoa.

DARTZ bassist Clark Mathews says he originally conceived new song ‘Hoons’ as a unique Kiwi take on stereotypically wistful pop-punk anthems, keeping it under wraps from the rest of the band until singer Danz pitched a song about his complete lack of ability on a skateboard: “Hoons came out of this period of time when Danz and our mate The Marlbro were smashing heaps of skating - we’d be hanging out or recording a song together then the two of them would just bounce to go skate at the [Wellington] waterfront, grabbing their boards and yelling ‘HOONS’ a bunch.”
