The band are up for four Vodafone New Zeland Music Awards for the breakthrough record, presented tonight at Auckland's Spark Arena.

Press release:

Eccles Entertainment in NZ and Troubadour Music in Australia, in association with K2 Agency, are proud to present kiwi thrash metal band Alien Weaponry on their first ever Australasian tour. The trio from Waipu, Northland will bring their unique sound of thrash metal and Te Reo Māori to six centres in New Zealand and another six in Australia throughout March next year.

Since winning Smokefree Rockquest and Smokefree Pacifica Beats in 2016, Alien Weaponry have fast become one of the most talked about emerging metal bands in the world. Tonight, they are up for a record four Vodafone New Zealand Music Awards on the back of their debut album Tū, which entered the New Zealand album charts at #1 and received critical acclaim worldwide.

Since July of this year, the three teenagers have been touring the world, playing some of the biggest and most prestigious metal festivals in Europe, Australia and the UK, including ‘Wacken Open Air’ in Germany; a goal they have had since they were kids.

Their single ‘Kai Tangata’ stayed at #1 on New York-based Sirius XM radio’s Devil’s Dozen for three months; and the video has clocked up nearly 2 million views on YouTube. Before the year is out, the band will embark on a monster 21-date tour throughout North America with industrial metal heavyweights, Ministry.

Now, Alien Weaponry are pleased to reveal they will be bringing their high energy live show home to Aotearoa. Kicking off in Tauranga, the band will also smash their way through Hamilton, Auckland, Dunedin, Christchurch and Wellington as well as six dates in Australia.

These shows are set to be a 2019 highlight for metalheads and kiwi music fans alike. Alien Weaponry are reaching new heights with every live show, and fans are urged to secure tickets promptly. Support acts will be announced shortly.
