Not content with ruling the airwaves via their insta-classic reimagining of The Mutton Birds' 'Dominion Road', Wellington icons DARTZ will be embarking on a full blown nationwide tour of Aotearoa in August, toasting the launch of forthcoming new anthem 'Hoons'. Recipients of the first ever SRN Award for Favourite Group and shortlisters for the 2021 Silver Scroll award, the party-punk powerhouse team of Danz, Crispy, Rollyz and Clark Mathews will be joined on their winter journey by a bevy of special guests including Wiri Donna, Deb5000, Mads Harrop (with band), L Hotel and more. Mathews shared a tantalising teaser for 'Hoons'...

“Hoons came out of this period of time when Danz and our mate The Marlbro were smashing heaps of skating - we’d be hanging out or recording a song together then the two of them would just bounce to go skate at the [Wellington] waterfront, grabbing their boards and yelling ‘HOONS’ a bunch.” — Clark Mathews
