Initially conceived as the solo project of Wax Chattels co-singer / keyboard mangler Peter Ruddell, Tāmaki Makaurau's Sulfate are now a full blown three piece with the inclusion of Hariet Ellis (Na Noise, Dick Move) and David Harris (Princess Chelsea). The many fans of Sulfate's breakout 2019 self-titled debut album will be over the moon at today's news there's a brand new studio record on the way via Flying Nun Records, entitled Godzone and out this coming September. The trio sweep listeners off their feet with bleak yet epic sounding lead single 'Crossing', launched with minimal and moody gothic visuals depicting a lost highway of a distinctly Aotearoa kind. Ruddell explained the band's vision for ‘Crossing’...

"This track is a comment about how we, as New Zealanders, have lofty ideals but often don't follow through with them in tangible ways. We talk about having a strong social voice on the global stage, and how clean, green and pristine our country is, but our track-record tells us otherwise. Sonically, we wanted this song to capture the expanse of New Zealand's scenery — how we are in awe of its beauty, and blissfully unaware of the ongoing social concerns which plague us."

'Godzone' launches on Friday 10th September via Flying Nun Records, vinyl preorders are available now.
