Gig Information

It’s been a big year for Pōneke / Tāmaki Makaurau pop-rock quartet Hans Pucket who write nervy but effortlessly danceable rock songs about feeling bad. Their second full-length album No Drama was released in late 2022 via Carpark Records (The Beths) to critical acclaim both in Aotearoa and abroad.

“Is there a more-well liked band in New Zealand right now than Hans Pucket? …No Drama overflows with slippery grooves and thoughtful lyrics, amplified by stirring strings and horns.” - Rolling Stone.

“Their latest album, No Drama, is packed with shiny indie-pop songs that are instantaneously infectious, often extremely danceable and endlessly catchy.” - Tone Deaf.

The band showcased at SXSW in Austin, Texas earlier this year, was nominated for a 2023 Taite Music Prize and won Te Rōpū Mariu (favourite group) at the 2022 Student Radio Network Awards.

Now, the band are set to tour their album No Drama in New Zealand this winter with 13 shows around the motu.

The 13-date nationwide tour will commence with a special show at Nelson’s Boathouse 7 July and finish in their hometown of Wellington on 12 August. As well as Christchurch, Dunedin, Auckland and Wellington, the tour will also stop off at Hamilton, Tauranga and Gisborne plus Blenheim, Queenstown, Oamaru, Hastings and Whanganui.
