The Schizophonics Touring New Zealand In February & March 2020

The Schizophonics Touring New Zealand In February & March 2020

C.C. / Wednesday 11th December, 2019 9:00AM

The Schizophonics caused a sensation when they tore through Aotearoa back in May, and now they're bringing their famously explosive live show back to NZ for a red hot run of early 2020 events. Blending wild garage punk, rock and soul into one hyperenergetic party-starting package, the husband and wife team of Pat and Lety Beers (that's their real name) have been delivering the goods live since 2009, but it wasn't until their 2017 debut album Land Of The Living (via Sympathy For The Record Industry) that the San Diego group's electrifying tunes were finally gathered together on wax for the ages. Fresh from releasing their brand new album People in The Sky, and currently featuring Takumi McIntyre (formerly of the Cavemen) on bass, The Schizophonics are playing throughout NZ in February and March, including appearances at Upper Hutt's Obey The Riff festival and Tauranga's Not Woodcock extravaganza. Grip the details right here...

Press release:

In May, The Schizophonics blew minds everywhere on their first visit to NZ and Australia. Antipodean audiences had seldom (if at all) witnessed the likes of levitational front man Pat Beers , whose sweaty splits , 720 degree spins (all before completion of the first song!) had local audiences gagging!! The Schizophonics combine the swagger of James Brown meeting the Stooges, Hendrix and MC5's sonic attack in their hooky garage pop.

San Diego's wild trio is now 2/3's Californian (with husband and wife Pat and Lety), and 1/3 kiwi with the addition of Takumi MacIntyre (formerly of the Cavemen) on bass. So impressed with Takumi's style and grace when they met him in May, Pat and Lety offered him the gig before even seeing him play a note! Takumi just completed a 30+ date tour of the USA with the band.

Their new album is called People in The Sky, you can hear it here This tour will see them hit the Pacific Rim with thirty + NZ , Australian, and Japanese dates ....

Earlybird tickets available from UNDER THE RADAR for all (mostly!) shows before Christmas Day ....

Phew .... for all media enquiries please contact John Baker at electric alchemy ..
