Hot Mulligan Announce 'Why Would I Watch' New Zealand Tour

Hot Mulligan Announce 'Why Would I Watch' New Zealand Tour

Chris Cudby / Monday 28th August, 2023 12:00PM

No relation to RNZ presenter, host of The Project and reported Green Grove fan Jesse Mulligan, Hot Mulligan are in fact the Michigan Midwestern emo-punk-pop collective of Nathan 'Tades' Sanville, Chris Freeman, Ryan 'Spicy' Malicsi and Brandon Blakeley. They've announced their first ever tour down under, treating Aotearoa fans to summer headline dates at Auckland's Neck of the Woods, Wellington's Valhalla and Lyttelton's The Loons in late February. Earning plaudits from Alternative Press and Rock Sound, with three albums to date, and a distinctive line of merch to their name, Hot Mulligan have racked up tens of millions of streams for their anthems '*Equip Sunglasses*', 'How Do You Know It's Not Armadillo Shells', I Fell In Love With Princess Peach', 'Featuring Mark Hoppus', and 'BCKYRD'. Don't miss the gang celebrating their 2023 opus Why Would I Watch all around the motu this coming February — here are the details...

Press release:

Michigan Midwesterners Hot Mulligan announce they will make their long-awaited trip to NZ shores in March 2024 for their first ever string of NZ shows.

Hot Mulligan have a way of manifesting things into existence, whether it’s name dropping Michelle Branch and Mark Hoppus in song titles and netting responses from both (only one got the joke) or, true to their word, becoming synonymous with the newest wave of pop-punk and emo.

Since forming in Lansing, Michigan in 2014, the college friends have ascended from basements to buzz band on the back of two beloved albums out via No Sleep Records, 2018's Pilot and 2020's you’ll be fine.

Now, bolstered by 140 million Spotify streams, a sold-out nationwide headlining tour, support slots for the likes of The Wonder Years and New Found Glory and headlines in Alternative Press and Rock Sound, the band’s third LP out via Wax Bodega, Why Would I Watch, cements their evolution as one of the most versatile and profoundly moving bands in the underground.
