Stellar* first burst on the scene with five radio hits in 18 months - Violent, What You Do (Bastard), Undone, Every Girl and Part of Me - all reflecting the unique blend of rock and electronica on 1999's Mix album.

Their reputation as innovative hit makers was embedded with All It Takes, Taken and Star off 2001's Magic Line album, and For A While (feat. Andy Lovegrove) and Whiplash off 2006's Something Like Strangers, their third and final studio album.

They became Sony Music NZ's highest selling Kiwi band, collecting eight NZ Music Awards along the way. All three albums charted within the top 10 of the NZ Album Chart – the first two reaching No. 1 - all securing their status as a classic mainstay in the New Zealand music scene. In October 2010, Stellar* released an 18-track Best Of album, featuring a new single, So Alive.

In December 2019 they will celebrate the release on vinyl for the first time of their debut album Mix, released by Sony NZ to coincide with the album’s 20th Anniversary.

Band Members:
Boh Runga (vocals, guitar)
Andrew Maclaren (drums, programming)
Chris van de Geer (guitar)
Kurt Shanks (bass)

Official site..?

Hi, I've just come across Stellar's music and I'd like to find out more about them, like any tour dates coming up in the UK (probably wishful thinking). Has the official website changed because the stellar.co.nz one doesn't seem to exist any more?

Any other fansite links would also be appreciated.
