Garage Project, Radio Hauraki and Under The Radar presents

The Phoenix Foundation are excited to announce a eight-date New Zealand tour in support of their brand new album Give Up Your Dreams.

The tour, which will be the band’s first national outing since the release of 2013’s Tom’s Lunch, will hit up New Zealand’s main centres, playing the new stunning, psychedelic material off the upcoming album as well as some the old favourites.

With five studio albums and two movie soundtracks under their belts, Give Up Your Dreams is a shrewd and vibrant reminder that in the phoenix foundation’s gloriously absurd world of technicolour pop, it’s the challenges you set yourself that reap the greatest rewards!

Released on August 7th, The Phoenix Foundation have honed their skills on this album, self-producing the entire record for the first time in an outing that is driven by optimistic vibes and an infectious rhythmic sound.

The lead single Mountains is a superb example of this new focus on the rhythm section, emphasized through the addition of drummer Chris O’Connor.

Never ones to sit still, the band have also been busy teaming up with the Garage Project on another creative venture. Music and beer are two great bedfellows, and with The Phoenix Foundation and Garage Project both being born and bred Wellingtonian outfits, a partnership to collectively give up their dreams with the creation of New Zealand's finest craft draught was just good sense. More details on this exciting collaboration will be coming soon.

The prog-indie sextet have established themselves as firm favourites among local fans with their innovative, experimental sound and hypnotic live show and can’t wait to kick off the tour in Wellington on September 18th. Tickets will be available through Under The Radar. Support acts to be announced.
