Monday 15 February, 2016 - Auckland Alt-rock band Villainy are hitting the road this March and April for seven headline concerts around New Zealand and an appearance atHomegrown.

2015 was a massive year for Villainy with the release of their second album Dead Sight(which debuted at #4 on the NZ Charts), achieving a huge rock radio hit with Safe Passage and culminating in stadium dates supporting legendary rockers AC/DC.

Now it’s time for Villainy to take the headline spot on their own tour, with support by City of Souls and Decades.

Villainy’s Neill Fraser says the band can’t wait to take their music on tour again.
