Cali-Folk-Psych band Allah-Las announce Feb 2020 Shows


Wednesday November 27, 2019 :- 5:00PM

California’s shimmering melody-makers Allah-Las have announced their maiden voyage to Aotearoa New Zealand this February with a three-date tour including Auckland, Wellington and the Coromandel. Having taken their compact California on the road across the world (making stops in North, Central, and South America, Europe, South Africa, Australia, Russia, East Asia and beyond), Kiwi music fans rejoice for their long-awaited arrival to New Zealand’s shores.

Allah-Las will be touring their acclaimed fourth LP, LAHS, released via Brooklyn record label, Mexican Summer. Widely noted as the band’s most thoughtful and evolved work to date, LAHS radiates a skilful melding of melodies and moods, venturing into new, exciting territories.

Allah-Las seem to be transmitting from a place not found on any map. Those familiar with the band’s work will recognize their skillful melding of melodies and moods, but through that lens we see them venturing into new, exciting territories. Indeed, their growth not just as songwriters, but as performers, arrangers, and producers — is clearly audible.
