Alt-J Announce New Zealand Shows + Unveil New Single 'Adeline'

Poised to release their third studio album Relaxer next Friday, Leeds trio alt-J are celebrating by announcing a jaunt downunder in December which includes two New Zealand shows. The three-piece, who forged a strong fanbase for themselves with first albums An Awesome Wave (2012) and This Is All Yours (2014), have been building anticipation for their upcoming record, especially with the release of excellent (and impressively diverse) singles '3WW' and 'In Cold Blood', and now they've thrown another taster on the table with the release of 'Adeline'. Put the tour dates in your diary and check out the new track below...


Tuesday 12th December, Auckland Town Hall, Auckland SOLD OUT

Here is brand new single 'Adeline'...

And here is the captivating video for 'In Cold Blood' released earlier this month...



Frontier Touring are thrilled to announce one of the return of alt-J, one of the most successful British bands of the millennium, to New Zealand and Australia this December.

Quietly, resolutely, impressively, singularly, alt-J have become one of the biggest British bands of whatever it is we’re calling the 21st century’s second decade. Art-electro, math-folk, hymnal-rock, call it what you will, the music made by alt-J is the muscular sound of cutting edge innovation pumped by a melodically bleeding heart. Ten years after forming at Leeds University, alt-J are a post-guitar group for the new-pop generation. And as audiences all over the world know, when they get going, they rock hard.

alt-J’s highly anticipated third album RELAXER will be released next Friday 2 June (via Liberator Music/Infectious Music/BMG) on CD, heavyweight vinyl and digitally.

Ahead of its release, ‘3WW’ as well as ‘In Cold Blood’ have both been made available to fans, and today, alt-J have released ‘Adeline’ as a further taste of what’s to come on RELAXER.

The release of RELAXER follows alt-J’s Grammy and Brit Award-nominated This Is All Yours, which debuted at #5 in New Zealand and #1 in the UK. Their debut An Awesome Wave won the 2012 Mercury Prize and an Ivor Novello Award. Between them, the two albums have sold in excess of two million copies worldwide and their songs have been streamed well over 1 billion times.

Three years of worldwide touring have forged alt-J’s reputation as a fierce live act. alt-J have headlined festivals across the globe, and on their last international tour, alt-J sold out the London’s iconic O2 Arena and New York’s legendary Madison Square Garden.

alt-J will return to New Zealand and Australia this December following shows throughout Europe and the United States.
