It’s released on September 12 , and the two acts will celebrate by hitting the road together for and unmissable event tour at the month’s end. While the EP’s arrival alone will be a huge deal amongst New Zealand’s bassheads, the tour will be the ultimate expression of the collaboration. It will feature a scorching DJ set from Shapeshifter, boosted by live elements from PDigsss on vocals. Come their turn, The Upbeats will bring their customary full noise live experience, with tracks from their acclaimed Rituals EP from May sure to be among the highlights.
