Ōtepoti "pop-raunch rock" tunesmith nicholas Franchise (note the lower case 'n') and band will be making themselves known all across Aotearoa, celebrating the launch of second album Return on Investment with a five-stop Unleash The Franchise national tour this autumn. Released in 2018 while Franchise was based in Portland, the popularity of first album Setup saw the hard-gigging songwriter perform throughout the United States. He's now back in relatively unrestricted New Zealand (nobody mention last week) and the tunes continue to flow, with the next long player set to drop on 9th April. Enjoy the breezy grooves and swish visuals for recent singles 'Going Places' and 'Getup', and don't miss Franchise and his Raunched-Up Live Ensemble moving the crowd at a venue near you...

Press release:

nicholas Franchise is out of the cage

On April 9th nicholas Franchise will release his long-awaited second album titled ‘Return on Investment’.

It’s only natural that his Raunched-Up Live Ensemble have decided to Toss The Lock and UNLEASH THE FRANCHISE for a five-stop NZ wide tour.

On Friday April 30, they will play Whammy in Auckland to perform new hits from the sophomore album, including wet hot singles ‘Getup’ and ‘Going Places.’

It will be eye-widening. It will be woozy. There will be love & angst more frisky than a home movie. This is a full-body-shudder experience not to be missed. Come one come all, and seek your Return on Investment as we UNLEASH THE FRANCHISE.
