Garageland Announce 'Last Exit To Garageland' 25th Anniversary Tour

Garageland Announce 'Last Exit To Garageland' 25th Anniversary Tour

C.C. / Tuesday 6th July, 2021 8:30AM

Rulers of '90s student radio airwaves, Garageland are making an almighty comeback this spring, celebrating the 25th anniversary of their breakout Flying Nun debut album Last Exit to Garageland with a ripper of a six date nationwide tour. Starring the original iconic 1996 lineup, who regularly graced the pages of local street mags Rip It Up and Real Groove as well as being played seemingly endlessly on Tāmaki's long-gone but not forgotten Max TV (do not interrupt me while I'm watching Box Dog), Garageland are sure to drive fans into a frenzy all over again with such hook-packed smash hits as 'Fingerpops', 'Beelines to Heaven' and 'Nude Star'. Last spotted performing at The Others Way 2015, you won't be 'Tired and Bored' when you see Garageland 'Fire Away' each and every 'Classically Diseased' number from their first studio long-player, as they finally 'Return To You' [cut that out! — Ed.] in October. Best nab tickets as soon as possible, as who knows whether they're 'Never Gonna Come Around Here Again'...

Press release:

Citizens, it’s been roughly 9125 days since Flying Nun chart invaders Garageland released Last Exit to Garageland to the world and the band are happy to announce an October 2021 return.

Take yourself back 300 months to 1996 as the band dig into an album that NME described as having “enough catchiness and sonic adrenaline to incite a teenage riot … a collision of Sonic Youth, Pavement and a massive lorry-full of hooks … half Pixies, half-mass-slaughter-of-oxen... bloody marvellous.”

Fingerpops, Come Back, Beelines to Heaven, Nude Star will all be played, songs that still sound fresh 219,000 hours later. They will play the whole Last Exit album, Comeback Special EP and then assorted favourites with the original 1996 line up. It’s guaranteed to be the highlight of your life.
