The Neo-Kalashnikovs - NZ Tour 2014

The Neo-Kalashnikovs - NZ Tour 2014

The Neo-Kalashnikovs (AKL) and Forcefields (WGTN) plan to decimate the North Island’s main centres; Auckland, Hamilton and Wellington in May (NZ music month). They aim to build local buzz around their new singles “Zeroing” & “Treat Me Right”.

The tour came about from a chance encounter online. The bands have never met so it will either be a saucy first-date or perhaps a steamy love affair, who knows? There might be a shotgun wedding in Hamilton, a motel honeymoon in Wellington or an expensive bogan feast in Palmy. What’s going to happen in Whanganui is anyones guess? One things for sure both bands mean business!

With Forcefield’s solid live reputation in Wellington and The Neos heavy radio play on Hauraki FM this is a tour for NZ rock fans nationwide. From the angsty student to the tough-nut tradey and all those uptight brain surgeons in between ‘we will rock you!’ With brain-splattering bass, face searing guitars & soul wrenching vocals they’ve got you bro!

Tickets available on the door for just $10 and $15 with your very own signed CD

Tour Dates:
Saturday May 3rd - Altitude Bar, Hamilton
Friday May 16th - The Royal, Palmy
Saturday May 17th - Bodega, Wellington
Saturday 24th of May - Space Monster, Whanganui

Denial has all the hallmarks of a riveting courtroom drama. Based on a 1996 British libel case that author David Irving brought against Lipstadt, the movie has been criticized as flat and stagey, but it nonetheless conveys a visceral clarity of vision and sense of overwhelming urgency. More>>
