Canterbury indie-rockers Clap Clap Riot are celebrating their 10th anniversary in style this March. The veteran group are hitting the four main centres to play tunes from throughout their acclaimed career, encompassing their 2009 debut TV Knows Better EP, a trifecta of studio albums including 2017's Dull Life, multiple Vodafone New Zealand Music Awards nominations, and live performances alongside such international icons as The 1975, Jimmy Eat World and Alt-J. Originally named after an "applause machine designed by John Lydon" for Top Of The Pops, they won't be needing any such technical tomfoolery to bring the party this autumn. Support artists are yet to be announced for the tour, here's the info revealed so far...

Press release:

Indie rock darlings Clap Clap Riot are pumped to announce their ​10 Year Anniversary Tour​, which will cover top to tail of New Zealand this March.

Started in Canterbury by a group of high school friends, the dynamic five-piece solidified their place as a kiwi staple over a last decade with one EP, three full-length albums, a string of NZ music award nominations, and countless live shows with the who’s who of local and international acts.

To mark their decade’s long existence, Clap Clap Riot will play four dates, taking their energetic live show to Dunedin, Christchurch, Wellington and Auckland.

As part of the tour, fans will be taken on a journey through all the hits and lesser known delights, plus hear new material from a forthcoming release which is currently being recorded with Tom Healy at Auckland's The Lab studio.

Support acts to be announced.
