Freazy) and Tom Healy (who were also spotted performing at this year's APRA Silver Scroll Awards).

Press release:

The return of Tiny Ruins to the touring circuit with new music in pocket has been met with much excitement the world over.

August 2018 saw Tiny Ruins release their latest single ‘How Much’ and embark on a month-long sold out UK & EU tour. ‘How Much’ was a Lauren Laverne BBC6 Headphones Moment and saw the band perform a live session with Marc Riley. Listen here. Recently returned home after wowing audiences across Australia with Milk! Records artist Jen Cloher, and as support for iconic Kiwi band, The Chills, through New Zealand, the touring suitcases are being repacked for the upcoming four date headline N.Z.

Tiny Ruins are delighted to announce the support artists for each show. Opening in Christchurch is Ben Woods (Wurld Series, Salad Boys) now working under his own name and set to release a debut album this summer produced by Steven John Marr (Doprah, Kane Strang, Yumi Zouma).
