Dead Kennedys New Zealand Shows Announced

Wednesday 8th August, 2018 10:00AM

California punk legends Dead Kennedys are returning to New Zealand in November, to play shows at Auckland's The Powerstation and Christchurch's The Foundry. Dating all the all the way back to 1978, the iconoclastic four piece spat out such blistering anthems as 'Holiday In Cambodia', 'Too Drunk To Fuck', 'California Uber Alles', 'Nazi Punks Fuck Off' and countless more unforgettable classics over four studio albums. The band reformed in the early 2000s after over fifteen years of dormancy, the current Dead Kennedys lineup features founding members East Bay Ray and Klaus Fluoride alongside D.H. Peligrio and new vocalist Skip McSkipster. Expect nothing less than an explosive evening of non-stop killer hits from the perennial punk favourites, here are the details...

Press release:

Holiday In Cambodia – Too Drunk to F*** – Nazi Punks F*** Off – Kill The Poor – Police Truck – California Über Alles

The songs are as unforgettable as the band’s name, and fans will hear them all when American punk icons Dead Kennedys return to New Zealand – for their first shows since 1983’s infamous gig at Auckland’s Mainstreet - in November.

The DK’s were the first West Coast American Punk act to make an impression, prompting bans in the UK and Australia and opening the door for countless hardcore bands like MDC, Bad Brains and Black Flag. Their full-on sound, anti-establishment politics and sense of humour became inspiration for generations of skate and surf punks and massively popular bands including the Offspring and Green Day.

40 years since they formed, and 35 years since they first appeared in New Zealand, Dead Kennedys are still guaranteed to cause chaos at every show and remain a band not to be missed.
