Hamilton Based Band "Latest Fallout" Going on National Tour

Hamilton Based Alternative/Pop-Punk Band "The Latest Fallout" Going on National Tour

Hamilton based Alternative/Pop-Punk band The Latest Fallout have found themselves at an exciting point in their bands movement. With achievements stacking up and their nation wide tour quickly approaching the bands popularity can easily be seen by their ever growing fan base.

The opportunities are endless for The Latest Fallout and as lead singer Brendan Pyper said when asked about future goals “there is nothing we [the band] don’t want to achieve”. The band would love a sell out tour when they leave to do their concerts in October but their goals stem further than this. The Latest Fallout hope to achieve recognition from the New Zealand music industry to help with getting their music more widely acknowledged. As well as this the band would like to see themselves travel to other countries where their music will be appreciated.

The Latest Fallout have recently signed MediaPA as their promoter which will help with boosting their profile and therefore create more recognition. Having MediaPA as their promoters will also supply them with an advocate for future advertising and be essential in promoting their up coming tour and other endeavors of the band.

The upcoming tour will take place in October with about ten shows planned over the north and south islands. The band will be performing the popular tracks off their recently released self-titled album. The band look forward to playing the songs that have been popular with the fans and Brendan Pyper adds that they “have been putting in a lot of practice to make this the best show yet”.

The Latest Fallout hope to continue their success and hopefully through recognition of achievements such as being chosen by Air New Zealand to have their latest album as the in-flight music as passengers board the planes, have their potential recognized enough to be signed to a music label. A serious goal for the band who are extremely passionate about what they do. With up coming albums Brendan says the band want to “try a lot of sounds, something different” than what we heard with the last album as they give everything to keep moving upwards.

If you would like to experience the passion of The Latest Fallout for yourself take the opportunity on September 6th 7pm at the Meteor in Hamilton.

Gordon Campbell: On Chuck Berry (And James Comey, And Bill English)

Back when many people were still treating rock’n’roll as a passing fad – was calypso going to be the new thing? – Chuck Berry knew that it had changed popular music forever. What is even more astonishing is that this 30-ish black r&b musician from a middle class family in St Louis could manage to recreate the world of white teenagers, at a time when the very notion of a “teenager” had just been invented.

Howard Davis Review:
The Baroque Fusion Of L'arpeggiata

Named after a toccata by German composer Girolamo Kapsberger, L'Arpeggiata produces its unmistakable sonority mainly from the resonance of plucked strings, creating a tightly-woven acoustic texture that is both idiosyncratic and immediately identifiable. Director Christina Pluhar engenders this distinctive tonality associated with the ensemble she founded in 2000 by inviting musicians and vocalists from around the world to collaborate on specific projects illuminated by her musicological research.

Scoop Review Of Books: We’re All Lab Rats

A couple of years ago, there were reports that Silicon Valley executives were sending their children to tech-free schools. It was a story that dripped of irony: geeks in the heart of techno-utopia rejecting their ideology when it came to their own kids. But the story didn’t catch on, and an awkward question lingered. Why were the engineers of the future desperate to part their gadgets from their children? More>>
