The maniacs behind Camp A Low Hum have revealed the first of sure to be many international headliners for next year's currently top secret summer festival bill, none other than Canada's hyper-energising genre-melters Holy Fuck. Last here more than a decade ago for Laneway 2011 (when it was held in Aotea Square), the quartet of Brian Borcherdt, Graham Walsh, Matt McQuaid and Matt Schulz are cramming three Aotearoa headline dates around their double weekend CALH appearances in the outskirts of Wainuiomata, bringing the party to Tāmaki Makaurau, Ōtautahi and Te Whanganui-a-Tara in mid-February. The Toronto collective have launched two albums since their last visit — Deleter (2020) and Congrats (2016) — gaining new fans worldwide with infectious soundtrack contributions to Invincible, Mr Robot and Breaking Bad. Don't miss Holy Fuck bringing the dancefloor heat at the dates following...

Press release:

Canadian quartet Holy Fuck have always been happy to plow a distinctly lone furrow. Never ones to chase the limelight or hop on any genre-wagon that happens to be passing by, they’ve played by their own rules for the past part of 15 years and five albums.

It’s for that reason that they’ve become one of Canada’s finest, and most influential, exports, with their widescreen, technicolour, crescendo-heavy and highly danceable sound often finding itself imitated, but never bettered.

Even after attracting mainstream attention thanks to appearing on the soundtracks to both Breaking Bad and Mr Robot, the band has continued to go against the grain in a cultural landscape that prioritises and lionises the safe and predictable over the marginal and Single-minded.
