ENTER TO WIN!
The Living End CD — Wunderbar. Performing at Auckland’s Powerstation (R18) Wednesday, February 6 with Ekko Park
Fans of The Living End are over the moon after hearing that the Aussie rockers are returning to NZ for the first time since 2012.
The Living End need no introduction. Since rising to international fame in 1997 with the release of double A-side Second Solution/prisoner of Society, The Living End have remained at the top of their game, consistently producing an abundance of anthemic choruses and memorable songs.
Their new album Wunderbar lays testament to that.
Recorded in Berlin, during an icy cold winter, the elements provided a key role in producing one of the most raw, conscious and politically vital albums of their career. “There’s no better place in the world for rock and roll bands to make dirty, gritty rock and roll music,” recalled bassist Scott Owen.
We’ve got two copies up for grabs to get you amped and ready for the live show!
Look out at the show for lead single Don’t Lose It and other top tracks such as Otherside, Amsterdam, Death Of The American Dream and Not Like The Other Boys. They’ve also penned a fitting tribute to the fallen in Too Young To Die. Much respect guys! Lest we forget.
Their new music sits comfortably alongside smash hits and fan favourites such as All Torn Down, Raise The Alarm, Who’s Gonna Save Us, Wake Up, West End Riot, One Said To The Other, White Noise, Tabloid Magazine and I Can’t Give You What I Haven’t Got, Pictures In The Mirror and Save The Day that never fail to get the crowds rocking.
They have a wicked sense of humour too — here’s how they announced Ekko Park’s support slot on Facebook — “We have picked a choicest band in the land of the long white cloud; Ekko Park to play at our show at the Powerstation on Wednesday, February 6. You’se can have Russell Crowe back, we’re gonna take Ekko Park home with us. Chur (sic).”
