Skyscraper Stan announces New Zealand tour on the back of his upcoming album 'Golden Boy'

17 May 2019 - 0 Comments

Beloved songwriter 'Skyscraper' Stan Woodhouse announces national full band tour on the back of upcoming release Golden Boy Vol. I and II - out on June 14th, 2019.

This August Skyscraper Stan and the Commission Flats are touring Golden Boy through NZ with four opportunities to see a songwriter and band at the top of their game.

Thursday 8th Aug, Lyttelton, Wunderbar | Tickets HERE

Friday 9th Aug, Dunedin, The Cook | Tickets HERE

Saturday 10th Aug, Auckland, Tuning Fork | Tickets HERE

Sunday 11th Aug, Wellington, Meow | Tickets HERE

Revered for his piercing observational lyricism and thrilling live performance Stan has once again teamed up with long time touring band The Commission Flats and engineer/producer Richard Stolz (Paul Kelly, HUSKY) to create a rollercoaster of a record.

Following on from 2015’s Last Year’s Tune, Golden Boy is tender, angry, introspective and political over the course of its 10 tracks. Split into two 5 track volumes the full length LP first tackles themes of privilege, masculinity, crime and ambition before moving into an introspective and autobiographical exploration of lessons learned (or not).

Driven by Stan’s intricate lyrics and underpinned by the dynamic Commission Flats, Golden Boy flies between such disparate influences as Stax era soul, Melbourne post-punk, Tin-pan Alley songwriters and rambling folk tales - a menagerie of mismatched musical muses coalescing into something unique, melodic and unexpected.
