The Goth and the Pixie album release tour announced

The Goth and the Pixie album release tour announced.

The Goth and the Pixie are amping up (and sometimes de-amping for acoustic sets) for a mini tour across the North Island promoting their debut album. The tour kicks of with an Evening of theatrical Madness at Hamilton's Meteor Theatre (Friday 3rd Nov, 7pm) alongside other acts Glass Shards, Halcyon Birds, Battlecat and a special guest appearance *wink wink*. The album itself is rather mysterious with apparent misinformation about its title; in one youtube promo video it is declared to be a self titled album, on their facebook page it is 'Hoighty Toighty High Tea Party' whilst close friends of the band claim with certainty that the title is 'S Club7's Greatest Hits'.

Hamilton NZ band The Goth and the Pixie's sound is commonly described by their fans as 'Dark Circus', 'Post-Sound' and 'a portal to a dream-like reality'. With their 2014 origins as a folk duo, they are now a fully equipped four-piece including electric guitar and violin with pedals - and delve into chaos and theatricality, gaining them a following from a range of genres. They have performed alongside the like of Coral, Albi and the Wolves, the Mermaidens, Former Friends of Young Americans (USA), Ted Danson With Wolves (AUS), and Looking for Alaska, as well as appearing in the 2015 Down the Rabbithole Lineup.

The band suggest following their facebook page (, subscribing to Pixie's website ( or instagram ( for secret and spontaneous shows soon to be announced. The album itself will be available for purchase and download on the aforementioned website and on bandcamp.
