Soaked Oats tour extends to Australia + NZ supports

Soaked Oats
'Shuggah Doom' Summer Tour

Expands to Australia
'Shuggah Doom' single release Jan 31st, 2019
NZ Tour Supports Announced

Soaked Oats have already begun their 13 stop tour around Aotearoa, spreading their slinky sludge pop across our shores with a mixture of festival appearances and headline shows. The band now announce they are shooting across the ditch for a four-stop, five-date tour for our Australian neighbours with shows in Melbourne, Canberra, Wollongong, and Sydney.

The 'Shuggah Doom Tour' coincides with the announcement of a new single 'Shuggah Doom' set for release Thursday Jan 31st, with an accompanying music video from NZ alterna-video guru director, Jake Munro (Avantdale Bowling Club, Marlin's Dreaming, Yukon Era).
Pre-Save Soaked Oat's 'Shuggah Doom' Now HERE

Soaked Oats have just stepped off the plane returning from a successful US tour where they travelled in excess of 10,000 miles in a 1980s RV, called "The Driftwood", to play 20 shows to the far reaches of the land of Milk & Honey. With no time to rest on their laurels and with the sweet taste of camper-van touring fresh at hand, the boys have picked up an NZ version of The Driftwood - although yet to be named. This summer tour has already taken in Gizzy's Rhythm and Vines, Coromandel, Mount Maunganui and Taupō.

With plenty of dates to come and a slew of talent lined up to support the boys at each of the NZ shows (see below) - this is your chance to soak up the sonic fruits of their labour.
