About Pale Flag

Pale Flag is a metalcore/deathcore inspired band hailing from Auckland, New Zealand. Combining hard-hitting riffs and even harder-hitting breakdowns, Pale Flag delivers a full heavy sound on their records and an energetic live experience that will get everyone moshing.

Emerging into the NZ metal scene in 2018 through a humble bands competition, Pale Flag were quickly picked up by the more established metal bands of the NZ scene at the time. They went on to fulfil a relentless gigging schedule, playing on a nearly weekly basis within their first year as an active band. Pale Flag draws influence on their sound from a wide range of metal music, but specifically targets a blend between early deathcore and modern hardcore.

Releasing their first single In this Moment in 2019, quickly followed by their debut EP Emergence, Pale Flag continued on to play with notable acts coming to New Zealand. Such acts include Alphawolf, Rings of Saturn and Vulvodynia. They later released another stand alone single and music video Delusional Exhibition in 2021. All this while putting as many gigs under their belt as possible. Including flying to Australia in 2022 for their first international gig, playing in the finals of the 2022 NZ/AUS Wacken Bands competition.
