Motocade
Posted: Sun Nov 1, 2009 9:55 am
Returning home after entertaining audiences all over Australia and in New York at the CMJ Music Marathon, Auckland based band Motocade set out on a four date tour of New Zealand. The Commandeering Tour will cover Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch and Queenstown.

With a hurtling rhythm section, erratic and explosive guitars and vocal melodies and harmonies that send shivers to the nether regions, Motocade’s musical style has made an imprint on the New Zealand alternative populous.

Over the last few years the four-piece indie rock band from Auckland have toured extensively throughout New Zealand as well as performing in Australia, building themselves a strong live following in the process.

Released in April this year, their debut album ‘Tightrope Highway’ has received critical acclaim, with catchy first single ‘Oldest Trick In The Book’ firmly securing Motocade on alternative and commercial radio throughout the country.

After forming in 2005, Motocade released their self-titled EP in 2006, followed by the ‘Into the Fall’ EP in 2007. Both were well received and showed the depth of the band plus their ability to transcend indie rock and explore experimental pop avenues. Motocade have gone on play at a range of New Zealand’s largest music festivals including the Big Day Out, Home Grown and Rhythm and Vines as well as at high profile events such as NZ Fashion Week and the APRA Silver Scroll Awards. Motocade were also applauded for a stand out performance supporting New York based band The Bravery on their New Zealand tour.

With a style that fits somewhere in amongst the intensity of The Strokes, the groove of Talking Heads and the scattered beauty of early Kings Of Leon, seeing Motocade live is something not to be missed.

MOTOCADE TOUR DATES:

31st OCT - Queenstown @ Revolver. With Guests.
5th NOV - Wellington @ SFBH. With Tiddabaddés & Diana Rozz
7th NOV - Auckland @ Montecristo Room. With The Tutts & F in Math & Mint Chicks DJ's
