Watch Alien Weaponry's Adult Swim Festival 2021 Livestream Set

Annabel Kean / Monday 15th November, 2021 11:25AM

Through the power of their own divine metal talent, and pure, riff-fuelled determination, Alien Weaponry are one of the few (the only?) Aotearoa acts currently sharing their pulse-pumping musical wares on international stages, including a killer slot at the weekend's live-streamed Adult Swim Festival. The Northland thrash trio have been dominating North American crowds since September, playing their own headline shows between a string of support dates with French heavy metal crew Gojira and hardcore punks Knocked Loose.

With their blistering new sophomore album Tangaroa up their collective sleeves and a festival line-up shared with the likes of Flying Lotus, Lil Baby and Angel Olsen, brothers Lewis and Henry de Jong (Ngāti Pikiao & Ngāti Raukawa) and Tūranga Morgan-Edmonds busted out a gut-punching studio set for the two day online Adult Swim Festival. Lucky for us, the 25 minute performance is available to watch for free as many times as we please. Not so lucky for us, Alien Weaponry aren't back on home turf until July 2022 at the earliest, absolutely slammed with US and Europe tours and festivals. Enjoy a heavy dose of Aotearoa's finest in the up-close and personal clip below...

'Tangaroa' is out now on major streaming services via Napalm Records.
