Click for big version.

Kiwi band Supermodel’s highly anticipated album Rimu & Roses will be released on Friday 17 January 2014.

Pre-order Rimu & Roses here >

World famous producer Reinhold Mack, who is responsible for producing some of history’s biggest bands including Queen, David Bowie, ELO, and The Rolling Stones, has mixed the full 12-track album, which he has dubbed the “best thing since sliced bread”.

Last year the four-piece pop rock band, including frontman/guitarist Mark Hanify, his sister Rose on keys,Michael White on the bass, and drummer Tony Kemp, spent a few months at Quicksand Recording Studios in Christchurch before Hanify contacted the German genius, Mack. Following numerous inspiring musical chats via Skype, the rest they say is history… 

“It’s a dream come true”, says Hanify. “I’ve always aspired to work with a legendary producer who has worked with ‘the greats’ - like Freddie Mercury and Jeff Lynne - and learn some of their magic tricks.”

Supermodel’s national tour begins on 17 January 2014 (full tour dates below)
