The Presidents of the United States of America in Auckland

- PRESS RELEASE - PRESS RELEASE - PRESS RELEASE -

Performing Live In New Zealand

DO IT Management, Juice TV & Radio Hauraki are excited to present 90's pop rock legends The Presidents of the United States of America live in New Zealand in 2013 playing their classic, 5 x platinum, self-titled debut album in its entirety including the hits “Lump”. “Peaches”, “Kitty” and “Dune Buggy” along with all their other greatest hits.

In 1995 Seattle outfit The Presidents of the United States of America launched their self-titled debut album and in the process took the world by storm with their unique take on guitar based pop rock. Armed with their uniquely modified electric guitars, an arsenal of perfect infectious pop hooks and super-smart songwriting skills the band scored massive hits around the world with the singles Lump, Peaches, Kitty and Dune Buggy. Whilst there was no doubting the extreme catchiness of The Presidents of the United States of America songs it was the undeniable sense of humor and fun with which they were delivered that really won the affection of music lovers of the decade.

Formed by childhood friends Chris Ballew (lead vocals, two-string basitar) and Dave Dederer (three-string guitbass, backing vocals), the duo played together in a number of projects before forming The Presidents of the United States of America in 1990. The newly named outfit recorded a demo tape, which began circulating around the Seattle musical community and, in the process, earned them a cult following.

Drummer Jason Finn joined the band in 1993 and within a year The Presidents became one of the most popular bands in Seattle. In the spring of 1994, they released their eponymous debut album on Pop Llama Records. The record became an independent hit and the band attracted the attention of Columbia Records, who re-released the Presidents' debut in the spring of 1995. The Presidents of the United States of America became a hit in the US summer of 1995, when MTV and modern rock radio began airing "Lump" frequently. "Lump," followed by the radio hit "Kitty" in the fall and the radio/video hit "Peaches" in the spring of 1996, propelled the album to a surprise Top Ten, double-platinum status.
