Jungle Rot Debut New Zealand Shows Announced

Jungle Rot Debut New Zealand Shows Announced

Chris Cudby / Tuesday 9th January, 2024 10:32AM

Forged in the furnace of Wisconsin's extreme metal underground, Jungle Rot are finally touching down in Aotearoa after more than three productive decades of relentlessly pummelling death / thrash / crust / crossover output. Initially announced to be visiting us last year, Jungle Rot will now treat Te Whanganui-a-Tara's metal masses to a headline performance at the capital's legendary Valhalla, while Tāmaki Makaurau city slickers can catch the ultra-heavy grooving team of frontman Dave Matrise, James Genenz, Geoff Bub and recent recruit Spenser Syphers (on drums) playing in support of touring US death metal pioneers Suffocation at Galatos. With eleven studio albums under their belts including 2022's A Call To Arms, rally the troops and turn up in force for Jungle Rot's inaugural local shows this coming April — here are the details...

Jungle Rot

Saturday 27th April - Galatos, Auckland, supporting Suffocation*
Sunday 28th April - Valhalla, Wellington w/ Stälker, Dole Bludger

Smash play on the title track to Jungle Rot's 2022 album A Call To Arms...

Press release:

Since 1992, Jungle Rot have garnered a large and loyal following of fans across the globe in this time.

Delivering a punitive blend of old-school thrash metal, death metal, crossover and crust punk; the group are known to integrate slow stomping melodies into their old school brand of extreme metal.

Jungle Rot have never tried to be the goriest or most technical band in the extreme metal underground, but instead have focused on flowing grooves and infectiously catchy song writing.

After three decades, 10 full length albums and an EP, released through respected labels including Century Media and Victory Records, Jungle Rot completed their latest album during 2020.

Recently signing with Unique Leader Records in 2021 the band have since released their 11th studio album A Call To Arms, in May 2022!
