Walking On Cars To Play Debut New Zealand Shows

Tuesday 16th July, 2019 10:00AM

Irish indie-pop crew Walking On Cars are bringing songs from their soaring and emotive new sophomore album Colours to Aotearoa this November, with two headline events lined up for Wellington's San Fran and Auckland's The Tuning Fork. Fronted by singer / lyricist Patrick Sheehy and hailing from Dingle, County Kerry, the five piece got the ball rolling by winning the high profile Redbull Bedroom Jam competition in 2012, and have since achieved massive success in their homeland and online, with singles such as 'Speeding Cars' and their breakout debut 'Catch Me If You Can' racking up literally tens of millions of streams (and counting). You can experience Walking On Cars performing in New Zealand for the very first time at the dates below...

Press release:

Irish natives Walking on Cars shot to fame in their home country in 2012 with debut single ‘Catch Me If You Can’, and have been shaking up the scene ever since with their chart topping hits at home and abroad. Just last month the indie-pop hero’s played a sold out, 12,000 capacity show at Irish Independent Park supported by rising UK star Tom Walker and the irrepressible Lewis Capaldi.

November & December will see the band perform their first ever headline shows in Australia & New Zealand. The dates follow a summer of European festival shows, a completely sold out UK tour and a clutch of huge arena and outdoor shows in their homeland, in support of the band’s spectacular new album, Colours. The band have been clocking up millions of views on Youtube, including the first single from Colours – ‘Monster’

Recorded between the band’s own home studio in County Kerry, London’s legendary RAK studios, and Angelic Studios near Banbury where The 1975 also made their most recent, Colours is a second album kaleidoscopically rich with sounds, emotions, synth-rock imagination and the brilliant song writing synonymous with the bands previous releases.

As Irish music bible Hot Press put it, hymning the country’s newest big rock export in a cover feature, “With the massive European success of their double platinum-selling debut, Everything This Way, Kerry’s Walking On Cars pretty much owned 2016.” Indeed Everything This Way went on to sell a hefty 325,000 copies worldwide. Over 18 months’ touring the band has sold 135,000 gig tickets, reaching arena level at home and sold out tours across Europe, as well as playing the mains stages of some of the biggest festivals out there, including Isle of Wight, Rock Werchter, Rock Am Ring and Electric Picnic in 2017. Their total global video views stand at an impressive 60 million, their cumulative global streams an eye-watering, ear-trembling 200 million.
