Clap Clap Riot

Nobody / Everybody

Auckland alt-rock band Clap Clap Riot will release their second album Nobody/Everybody on the new date of February 14th, 2014 - just over one year since their well-lauded debut Counting Spins hit store shelves. 

Recorded live at Mt Eden's underground studio The Lab earlier this year, the new release shows a progression into a groovier-landscape than its precursor, sitting comfortably within the hazy stripped back vibe of the sixties. In most parts, due to the colourful production and mixing style of Kody Nielson (Opossom, The Mint Chicks), and contribution of the engineering maestro that is - Olly Harmer. 

The first single from the album 'Everybody' is available here.  Listen to the second single Sweet Patricia here

The 12-track album follows the band's debut, which was named Rock album of 2012 by music giant iTunes and also received a nod at the 2012 Vodafone New Zealand Music Awards in the Best Rock category.

Limited vinyl and CD pre-order bundles are now available via JB Hi-Fi and would bode well as a pressie for your loved one this festive season. Extras include strictly limited 12" arctic-white vinyl (100 available), a five-track b-side EP recorded between Dave Parker's Little Monster studio and various bedrooms across inner city Auckland, an instant download of album track 'Cold As Ice', and a special edition pair of Clap Clap Riot socks.  Visit here for all the best info.

The album can also be pre-ordered from iTunes here.

The band will support the release with a nationwide tour in March. See them perform a handful of new material at the re-invented 2014 Big Day Out, taking place in Auckland on January 17th 2014.
