Napalm Death Announce ‘Campaign For Musical Destruction’ New Zealand Tour

Chris Cudby / Tuesday 9th May, 2023 11:00AM

Recognised by The Guinness Book of Records as the creators of the shortest ever recorded song (their 1.316 second classic 'You Suffer'), UK grindcore pioneers Napalm Death are returning to our shores for a triple date Campaign For Musical Destruction New Zealand Tour. Indisputably one of the most influential and aggressive groups of any kind to emerge in the last 40 years, Napalm Death formed in Meriden, West Midlands in 1981 and have unleashed seventeen studio long player so far, including last year's mini-album Resentment Is Always Seismic. Last here in 2017, Napalm Death's current membership is Shane Embury, Mitch Harris, Danny Herrera and Mark "Barney" Greenway — don't miss them bringing the fury with special guests from Singapore Wormrot in Tāmaki Makaurau, Te Whanganui-a-Tara and Ōtautahi at the following dates...

UPDATE: Napalm Death's Christchurch event is now happening at Loons — all tickets remain valid and UTR ticket holders have been emailed direct with details (check your promotions and spam folders).

Press release:

NAPALM DEATH. One of the most influential and legendary acts in the history of heavy metal, and considered by all, as the fathers of grindcore. Over 40 years on and seventeen albums in, NAPALM DEATH are in no way, shape or form of slowing down. As stated in their own words, silence sucks, noise is always the answer and they continue to create music that confronts, confounds and eviscerates in equal measure.

Grinding faces with the best of them will be Singapore’s vitriolic extreme noise terrorists WORMROT. Released in 2022, their latest album HISS has been heralded as one of the best modern grind albums, period! Their performances are intense, spectacular, furious, a barrage of unrelenting, head-caving abuse, honed by a singular determination to fucking destroy the competition. Get it or get out of the way!!
