FUR PATROL | Pet - 21st Birthday Tour | NEW DATE 19 AUGUST 2022
In April 2021, Fur Patrol released the 20th Anniversary vinyl reissue of PET - their much-loved debut album, which spawned five singles, including ‘Andrew’, ‘Holy’, the chart-topping ‘Lydia’ and previously "hidden" track 'Bottles & Jars'.
After two years of losing to Covid-19 we can all bounce back together and put aside our differences to once again unite as the losers we so obviously are. A true loser knows that life isn’t perfect 100% of the time, it is but a series of ebbs and flows. Sometimes everything goes as we desire and it all seems like a wonderful dream. Other times things don’t turn out as planned. But that is also ok because we will have learned great lessons about ourselves, this world, and the people around us and for that, we will come out much stronger and as better people.
Shepherds Reign - Re-Awakening Tour
A wild beast should never be caged, unless you wish to experience the full might of its fury when it is unleashed. With only 2 NZ shows to their name in the year 2021, Shepherds Reign is restless as they step on to the ring once again, as it is time for their ‘Re-Awakening’. With plans set in motion to dominate the world, they take a step back to warm up in their old backyard of Aotearoa. But do not believe for a second they are going easy, they will deliver each blow to every show with intent, and with the full weight of their ancestors behind them. They will demonstrate the monstrosity from the likes of ‘Lamb of God’ and ‘Gojira’, while channeling the gracefulness of ‘Dream Theater’.
