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

Scoop Review Of Books: The Typewriter Factory

I finished reading Don’t Dream It’s Over not long after it came out last August. I even started writing a review, which took something of an ‘I’m sorry people, but it’s already over’ approach. I’ve been pretty negative about journalism as it’s practiced in the mainstream (or MSM, or corporate media or liberal media or whatever terminology you prefer) for quite some time (see for example Stop the Press), and I believe the current capitalist media model is destructive and can’t be reformed.

Howard Davis Review: Dick Frizzell At The Solander Gallery

One of the most influential and celebrated contemporary Pop artists working in New Zealand, Dick Frizzell is mostly known for his appropriation of kitsch Kiwiana icons, which he often incorporates into cartoon-like paintings and lithographs. Not content with adhering to one particular style, he likes to adopt consciously unfashionable styles of painting, in a manner reminiscent of Roy Lichtenstein. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books:
Looking Back

Writing a memoir that appeals to a broad readership is a difficult undertaking. As an experienced communicator, Lloyd Geering keeps the reader’s interest alive through ten chapters (or portholes) giving views of different aspects of his life in 20th-century New Zealand. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books: Purple (and Violet) Prose

This is the second recent conjoint publication by Reeve and Stapp; all to do with esoteric, arcane and obscure vocabulary – sesquipedalian, anyone – and so much more besides. Before I write further, I must stress that the book is an equal partnership between words and images and that one cannot thrive without the other. More>>
