Muzic.net.nz Celebrates 20 Years!

04 May 2019 - 0 Comments

One of New Zealand’s longest running music websites Muzic.net.nz is celebrating its 20th anniversary by throwing a rock-fuelled party with proceeds going to charity.

The concert will feature some of the country’s most well-known rock acts - Skinny Hobos, Coridian, Written by Wolves, Dead Favours and Rebel Sound Radio - and will be held at Neck of the Woods in Auckland on Saturday, May 4.

The not-for-profit website Muzic.net.nz has supported Kiwi music since 1999 and has long enjoyed the reputation of being the go-to site for all local music news.

“We have nothing but admiration for the people who make up the team at Muzic.net.nz . To make it to 20 years is an incredible milestone, and it would not have been possible without their time, energy and efforts,” says the site’s manager Lisa Jones.

“We are in absolute awe that Muzic.net.nz has been around for this long. The love and support that we have received in return has been truly amazing,” she says.

All proceeds raised from the May 4 show will be donated to the Crescendo Trust of Aotearoa. Founded by Kiwi rock stalwart Marcus Powell ( Blindspott, City of Souls), Crescendo provides young people in Auckland with opportunities to succeed within the creative arts industry.

THE LINE-UP:

Alt-rock four-piece powerhouse Coridian are known for their hard-hitting, grooving rock vibe and powerful performances. Their latest single, Better Off, produced by Zorran Mendonsa (Blacklistt/City of Souls), has clocked tens of thousands of streams on Spotify and signals a new chapter for the band, as they gear up to release their debut album later this year. Check them out  here.

Dead Favours  have a reputation for combining huge fuzzy, and sometimes quirky, riffs with groove-laden drums and beautiful falsetto vocals. With their tunes blasted on radio stations The Rock and Hauraki, they’re a Kiwi favourite. Their new single Lost On You is out now. Check them out here

Written by Wolves are one of New Zealand’s fastest rising rock acts, with a growing international fanbase. Their hits Elastic Heart, Not Afraid To Die and Genius have clocked millions on Spotify, with their videos doing similar damage on YouTube. Their recently-released EP Prologue has also earned the band critical acclaim. Check them out here.

With a gritty, full rock sound two-piece Skinny Hobos are New Zealand’s answer to Royal Blood. Big Riffs, Big Drums! They make more noise than any two people should. They’re also undoubtedly one of the most charismatic live bands on the Kiwi rock scene. With a new EP coming out this Friday, they're a must-see! Check them out here

Rebel Sound Radio was formed early 2015 in Hamilton. The three-piece makes wild, untamed rock ’n’ roll, bringing new meaning to the word ‘rebel’. Check them out here.
