Castelow's ace live band will feature Barney Chunn, Matthias Jordan and Myles Allpress, they'll be accompanied by the multi-talented Eden Mulholland (Motocade) for the tour. Here's the details...

Press release:

return this winter, set to lift the lid on a new EP; a five song offering entitled Elastic Meditation.

Like a champion sweeper in a curling match, the early singles Bully, When Your Simulation Crossed Mine, and Elastic Meditation have dusted the ice smooth, paving the way for a full EP of catchy guitar pop due for release on Friday June 29th.

To celebrate the release, the band will chime around NZ's four main centres in July, playing the new EP in full, as well as smash hits from their previous releases Mufti Day, Beneath The Crystal Palace, and On The Down And In. The band, made up of Edward Castelow, Barney Chunn, Matthias Jordan and Myles Allpress have played countless shows across NZ and contributed to some of this countries favourite indie bands over the past 15 years, and can’t wait to bring their happy-go-lucky live show to the people this winter.

Joining Dictaphone Blues on all dates will be Eden Mulholland. The multifaceted Perth-based musician renowned for his inventive solo albums; his work with the Auckland Theatre Company; the recent New Zealand Festival 2018 hit Rushes; and being the voice of mid-2000 indie favs Motocade.
