Fat Freddy's Drop Announce Unknown Mortal Orchestra to support three Summer Shows

17 September 2018 - 0 Comments

Fat Freddy's Drop are stoked to announce Unknown Mortal Orchestra will be joining them for three of their NZ Summer Tour shows, in Auckland at Western Springs, Christchurch's Hagley Park and in Queenstown at John Davies Oval.

Fat Freddy's Drop are currently in the midst of an epic European tour that has been running since August and goes through to mid-November encompassing 30 shows. After playing some of the biggest EU festivals and selling-out Zitadelle, Berlin at 10k capacity, the band have already sold out upcoming shows in Brussels, Copenhagen, Manchester, Glasgow and Friday 8th November at O2 Academy Brixton in London.

Unknown Mortal Orchestra are also on an epic tour run across the globe in support of their latest album Sex and Food and have just finished their NZ Tour culminating in the triumphant sold-out performance at Auckland's Town Hall.

"UMO's show was an insane journey from hardcore psychedelic rock, to pop punk to alternative/indie and was an astonishing performance from all members of the band." - Radio 13

"The vibe was electric and emotional - audience members still wanted more" - undertheradar.co.nz


Freddy’s MC Slave is the band's number one UMO fanboy, remarking, “They’re bad-ass musicians who’ve been trail blazing around the world big time. We’re lucky to have them with us for our New Zealand summer roady”.

Fat Freddy's Drop new single Trickle Down has been heating up since its worldwide digital release. The electronic-driven reaction to the politics of the day – the false economic principle of wealth trickling down from the 1% to the 99% hit #1 on the Top 20 Hot NZ Singes chart.

Recorded at the band’s Bays studio in their Wellington hometown, Trickle Down is a slice of the new album they’re cooking up as a follow-up to their earlier releases; Bays, Blackbird, Dr Boondigga & The Big BW and record breaking Based on a True Story.

Trickle Down is released digitally now and a 12” release to follow.
