Avalanche City will tour throughout New Zealand this May and June on the ‘Little Fire’ tour, with support from singer/songwriter Ciaran McMeeken. The run will celebrate Avalanche City’s latest single of the same name, which has been quickly gaining favour across New Zealand as a most-added song on NZ radio.
Dave Baxter (Avalanche City) will bring music from the album – We Are For The Wild Places - to some of the most beautiful venues across New Zealand on an extensive all-ages 10-date tour; his largest national run yet. Baxter will be joined on the road by his touring band, and all of the accompanying instruments one would expect of an Avalanche City performance.
Avalanche City’s long-awaited sophomore album We Are For The Wild Places is the mature follow-up to an accidental hit career, launched to critical acclaim. Released last year, the record debuted at #3 on the Official Top 40 Albums Chart (and also peaked at #1 on the iTunes album chart).

The album’s beautiful first single, Inside Out was a chart and radio smash hit – reaching #1 airplay for five consecutive weeks. The track quickly reached platinum sales and peaked at #1 on the sales chart, remaining consistently active in the top 10 on iTunes.

The second official single from the album, Keep Finding A Way also received extensive airplay, peaking at #25 on the airplay chart.
Baxter hit the road shortly after releasing We Are For The Wild Places last year, performing sold-out theatre shows in major centres throughout New Zealand and thoroughly impressing his fans in the process with the live rendition of the album.

We Are For The Wild Places (mixed by Death Cab For Cutie’s Chris Walla) is a mature and fitting follow-up to Avalanche City’s debut album - Our New Life Above The Ground, which spawned the Silver Scroll-winning single, Love Love Love (currently at 2.5million views on YouTube!).

Supporting Avalanche City for the full tour is singer-songwriter Ciaran McMeeken, who is drawing attention with his strong lyricism and unique blend of emotive acoustic pop.

With his self released debut EP The Valley in 2014, McMeeken caught the attention of acclaimed producer Greg Haver, who worked with McMeeken to produce the seven-track Screaming Man EP, receiving much acclaim upon it’s release late last year.
After a successful week-long jaunt around regional radio stations as part of the NZ On Air regional radio initiative in February and a stint rubbing shoulders with the best songwriters in the business as part of APRA-NZ On Air's Song Hubs programme, McMeeken is excited to get back behind his guitar and play live on the Avalanche City tour. Ciaran McMeeken's sophomore EP Screaming Man is available to download now.

The Avalanche City Little Fire tour is for all ages and is proudly presented by More FM and The Edge.
