Gig Information

Seismic State hit the stage in Taupo for the first time.

Hot on the heels of their 2024 releases 2 Homes and Blinded By The Sun, Seismic State hit the road to grace the stage at Rosemary’s in Taupo, ably supported by Lance Shepherd.

This is a free entry event, so there’s no excuse to miss out - get your dancing shoes & singing voice (and cash for merch) and make your way down from 8:30pm (or earlier if you so desire).

You don’t want to miss this!!

Seismic State are; Sai (guitar), Liam (bass), Matthijs (drums), and Rogina (vocals & guitar).

In June 2021 they supported Auckland rockers, and Aotearoa Music Award winners, Dead Favours on their Riffing and Yelling tour. This was followed by inclusion in the lineup of Bayrock 2022 alongside legends Head Like a Hole, Stellar*, Zed, and Push Push, however the impact of covid restrictions caused the festival to be cancelled.

Seismic State’s debut EP, State of Things, was released in 2019. All four tracks off the EP received airplay in NZ and internationally with Genius, the first single, leading the charge by reaching #47 on The Generator FM’s weekly airplay chart for the week ending 31 May 2020. Genius also held down the #58 spot on The Generator FM’s 2020 Kiwi 101 chart.

Their 2024 tracks 2 Homes and Blinded By The Sun have built on the foundation set by State of Things, both stylistically and in terms of radio play.

Their style mixes rock with elements of blues, funk, progressive and alternative - they combine riff-oriented guitar with melodic basslines and driving drum rhythms forming a foundation for creative vocal melodies and thought-provoking lyrics. The result is an accessible and sonically pleasing bland of music not often found in the rock scene.
