KRUELTY (Japan) Returning To Aotearoa In April

KRUELTY (Japan) Returning To Aotearoa In April

Chris Cudby / Monday 4th March, 2024 10:01AM

Ambassadors of ultra aggressive "disgusting music from Tokyo, Japan", KRUELTY will soon be back in Aotearoa after obliterating local gig-goers with their immensely heavy beatdown hardcore / death / doom fury early last year. Launching their sophomore album / aural monstrosity Untopia in March '23, KRUELTY's return includes all-ages shows in Tāmaki Makaurau and Te Whanganui-a-Tara, plus their first ever Te Waipounamu headline event at Ōtautahi's Darkroom. Those who witnessed KRUELTY's previous visit were gushing words of high praise indeed, don't flub this chance to catch the mind-bogglingly intense collective in April, with local special guests to be revealed soon — brought to you by Wrought Material and Valhalla Touring...
