[WELLINGTON, Wednesday 26th March 2008] MySpace.com today announced that The Checks be returning to their home town of Auckland to present a FREE MySpace Secret Show at an undisclosed location on April Saturday 5th. Supported by the eclectic sound of Auckland’s White Birds and Lemons and with a set on the decks from 95bFM’s Matthew Crawley this exclusive all ages gig will give a handful of Aucklanders the opportunity to experience The Check’s trademark blues driven rock’n’roll in a unique and intimate setting.

Having already supported the likes of REM, Oasis and Muse, the five piece have witnessed phenomenal success since forming in 2002. Championed by the UK’s favourite music weekly the NME and following on from their critically acclaimed debut LP, Hunting Whales, their single "What You Heard" debuted at #16 on the UK Indie charts. Renown for their high energy live shows, this local success story will give a home crowd of MySpace fans the ultimate live experience for FREE.
