Beastwars Announce Nationwide Tour

Beastwars Announce Nationwide Tour

Tuesday 5th June, 2018 12:00PM

Wellington heavy music icons Beastwars are touring throughout Aotearoa this winter, following excellent news that singer Matt Hyde is in remission after being diagnosed with cancer in 2017. They're back after a long break period which followed the release of their uncompromisingly punishing third studio album The Death Of All Things in 2016. They'll be playing with killer artists around the country, including Earth Tongue, Old Loaves, and a rare appearance from Dunedin's Operation Rolling Thunder. Hyde shared some words on his return to local stages...

"It's a really nice feeling to be healthy again... The amount of fans that reached out to me while I was ill was mind blowing. I never thought that there were so many people that our music had touched and connected with. While health is on my side we thought that we should play some shows again. It's crazy that getting sick is the thing that has brought us back together."


Friday 13th July - San Fran, Wellington with Earth Tongue and Slumbug
Saturday 21st July - Galatos, Auckland with Old Loaves and Somme
Friday 3rd August - The Captain Cook, Dunedin with Kahu and Operation Rolling Thunder
Saturday 4th August - New City, Christchurch with Pieces of Molly, Yarnspinner and Casper Thomson

Tickets available HERE via UTR

Press release:

Beastwars return this winter for their first New Zealand tour in over 2 years.

With a setlist made up of favourites from their trilogy of albums Beastwars, Blood Becomes Fire and The Death Of All Things, Beastwars also promise to treat fans to new music as they deliver a tour that celebrates life, good friends and the huge riffs that they are known for.
