The Jungle Giants Auckland supports The Leers and Being

The Jungle Giants announce Auckland supports The Leers and Being.

It is only a couple of weeks until one of the hottest indie acts in Australia right now, The Jungle Giants, return to Auckland for a show on Friday October 19.

Tickets are selling quickly for the ‘Used To Be In Love’ show at Studio The Venue on K Road and available from TICKETMASTER

Two Auckland-based acts join the bill with alternative pop four-piece The Leers announced today, along with female indie-pop artist, Being.

Alongside Kendrick Lamar, Gang Of Youths and Lorde, The Jungle Giants dominated this year’s triple j Hottest 100 with four songs from their 2017 album, QUIET FEROCITY, making the Hottest 100. ‘Used To Be In Love’ at #59, ‘Bad Dream’ #57, ‘On Your Way Down’ #50 and a Top 20 inclusion with ‘Feel The Way I Do’, nabbing #16.

The ‘sleeper hit’ on the record, ‘Used To Be In Love’ has now had more than 10 million streams on Spotify.

The Jungle Giants drew rave reviews when they played their first-ever sold-out show in Auckland last year. They’ve also become firm favourites on Radio Hauraki, with ‘Used To Be In Love’ now on an A rotate.

The four-piece from Brisbane is renowned for their energetic live set, filled with charging dance hooks and contagious scream-your-lungs-out choruses. As well as last year’s aforementioned Kiwi show, they’ve traversed the globe in recent years, playing in LA, New York, Toronto, Austin, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur and Jakarta.

They’ve also played countless festivals including Groovin’ The Moo, Splendour In The Grass and the Falls Festival.

The band will also play in Christchurch on Saturday October 20 at the Tea Party for the University of Canterbury.
