Beastwars 'Blood Becomes Fire - November Tour

BEASTWARS

BLOOD BECOMES FIRE

NOVEMBER TOUR

With feedback still ringing in ears and shards of beer glass being pulled out of limbs, Beastwars return from a triumphant Melbourne tour to announce a seven-show trek across New Zealand in November 2013.

This, their final NZ tour in support of the hugely successful album Blood Becomes Fire, sees the band play to loyal fans in Christchurch, Wellington and Auckland as well as returning to this years Tattoo and Art Festival in New Plymouth and venturing to new frontiers, Masterton and Napier.

Following news that Nick Keller is nominated for "Best Album Art" at the 2013 Vodafone NZ Music awards for Blood Becomes Fire (he also won for Beastwars in 2011) the band are excited to have a set list that includes songs from the new album that have never been played live before and a taste of the new music being readied for future releases.

These will be the last shows for Beastwars in New Zealand for 2013 until they grace Big Day Out and Homegrown attendees with their thunderous presence then focus 2014 on recording a new album and more tours in Australia.

"The level of power projected by Beastwars, here on their debut Australian tour, was unfathomable... something you’d expect from an encore-demanding stadium crowd... I can’t remember the last time I’ve seen a crowd lose their minds in such a manner." - Beat Magazine

Max Rashbrooke: Review - The NZSO And Nature

This was a lovely, varied concert with an obvious theme based on the natural world. It kicked off with Mendelssohn's sparkling Hebrides Overture, which had a wonderfully taut spring right from the start, and great colour from the woodwinds, especially the clarinets. More>>

Gordon Campbell: On Chuck Berry (And James Comey, And Bill English)

Back when many people were still treating rock’n’roll as a passing fad – was calypso going to be the new thing? – Chuck Berry knew that it had changed popular music forever. What is even more astonishing is that this 30-ish black r&b musician from a middle class family in St Louis could manage to recreate the world of white teenagers, at a time when the very notion of a “teenager” had just been invented.

Howard Davis Review:
The Baroque Fusion Of L'arpeggiata

Named after a toccata by German composer Girolamo Kapsberger, L'Arpeggiata produces its unmistakable sonority mainly from the resonance of plucked strings, creating a tightly-woven acoustic texture that is both idiosyncratic and immediately identifiable. Director Christina Pluhar engenders this distinctive tonality associated with the ensemble she founded in 2000 by inviting musicians and vocalists from around the world to collaborate on specific projects illuminated by her musicological research.
