Germany’s DŸSE Announce NZ Tour

Media Release: Thursday 15th January, 2015

Germany’s DŸSE Announce NZ Tour

“Refreshingly inventive, cheerily old-school in the realm of art-rock and blistering when the mood takes them this is a band for those who enjoy their music heavy, brainy and willfully abstruse.”
- Sonic Abuse

German experimental noise-rock band DŸSE are heading to Kiwi shores for shows across the country this January and February.

Founded in May 2003 by Andrej Dietrich (guitars & vocals) and Jarii van Gohl (drums & vocals), DŸSE have gone on to play over 600 shows worldwide including slots at coveted festivals such as SXSW 2014, HELLFEST, DESERT FEST and ROADBURN.

Touring New Zealand for the first time, the tour celebrates the 2014 release of new album DAS NATION. Check out the video for single ‘Spinne’ here.

Mothra will also join the line-up in Auckland, while Pussywhippers will play Palmerston North and Whanganui.
