About Tourist

Tourist arise from Auckland. Playing distinctively original songs, the band has defined a brave new sound unique for this part of the world. Their rare ability to intertwine infectious melodic subtleties and stadium-ready anthems demonstrate a group well beyond their years. The quartet featuring Peter J Rudd (vocals, guitar) Rob Ranger (bass, vocals) Scott Gamble (guitar) and Simon de Vere (drums), have their debut album titled ‘Minutes Last For Years’. This record will become the hypnotic soundtrack people can’t shake from their minds.

The album was recorded at Stir Studios, in the cold wet streets of Cardiff, Wales and at York Street Studios, amongst the warm wet streets of Auckland. ‘Minutes Last For Years’ was produced by award winning UK producer Greg Haver who has worked with international artists such as Manic Street Preachers, Catatonia, Super Furry Animals, Mel C and New Zealand acts The Feelers and Pluto. The resulting sound of this recording is one that is intense and exciting, yet at the same time openly accessible and honest. Peter J Rudd’s unmistakable voice, infectious melodies and thoughtful lyrics atop surging guitars and raunchy, pulsating rhythm section that together forge a masterfully structured debut album of colossal rock songs brimming with classic britpop style and distinct indie flare. Rip It Up magazine recently reviewing the band’s last EP release noted “Tourist are a fresh New Zealand band that I have confidence in getting very big because they are so original.”

Tourist are regular performers around New Zealand and have played internationally alongside artists such as Gramsci, 48 May, Zillionaire, Goodnight Nurse, Heavy Jones Trio, Midwest Motorparts Corral, The Septembers, Leonard and The Fanatics to name a few.
