This little "upgrade" marks the start of a site-wide revamp, which will see many of our most popular areas upgraded over the next few weeks.
The aim here is to make the site easier to use and more appealing - the existing design is almost 5 years old!
At the moment it's kind of like a renovation job on an old student flat. We've got a new paintjob on the outside, but the inside is still a little worn and tired looking. But never fear, the builders, plasterers and painters are all busy at work tidying up the inside already!
We hope you like the new update and as always would appreciate any feedback you might have.
Adam, Lisa & The muzic.net.nz Team

"With 2007 already seeing the band play club shows in Melbourne, rock festivals in Taiwan, and soon another Australian tour supporting art-rock vanguards The Red Paintings, Battle Circus have spent any downtime back in Auckland putting the finishing touches on their David Holmes (Jakob, Gramsci)-produced debut EP.
Upon it's release in September, Battle Circus will unveil a new video (their first since the animated epic "Utopium" released earlier this year) before again hitting the road for a national tour- taking the songs and intricate production (along with some special guests) of their debut record to audiences throughout New Zealand, before continuing their travels overseas.
Next year is sure to have an even stronger international focus for the band, with more trips to Asia, Australia, Europe and the U.S, and eventually the recording of a full-length album."
