Kings per­form­ing over this sum­mer

Te Awamutu Courier - - Classifieds -

Fresh from tour­ing the world, one of New Zealand’s hottest acts, Drax Project, are hit­ting the road this sum­mer for three shows. And for good mea­sure, they’re tak­ing fel­low Kiwi hit­maker, Kings, along for the ride.

The tour heads to Coroglen Tavern on De­cem­ber 27 then But­lers reef, Oakura on Jan­uary 3 and Waihi Beach Ho­tel on Jan­uary 5.

They’re joined on their sum­mer tour by an­other big name in Kiwi mu­sic, the mighty Kings.

But wait there’s more. We’re of­fer­ing up the chance to win an au­to­graphed copy of Kings de­but self-ti­tled EP as the ideal pre­cur­sor to get you amped for the up­com­ing shows.

Kings, the EP, con­tains his smash hit sin­gle Don’t Worry ‘Bout It.

The Auck­land-based pro­ducer, rap­per, singer and song­writer has topped the charts, amassed mil­lions of streams on Spo­tify and YouTube; smashed records and won count­less awards since emerg­ing on the scene in 2016.

He fol­lowed up the EP with his full-length de­but al­bum, Chap­ter One and then his sec­ond al­bum, Two.

In late 2018, Kings re­leased the sin­gle 6 Fig­ures sig­nalling new ma­te­rial on the way from his third al­bum, Love & Ego, and se­cured a nom­i­na­tion for ‘best hip-hop artist of the year’ at the VNZMAs.

This tour wraps up an in­cred­i­ble year for Drax Project in which their hits such as Woke Up Late and Toto — from their EP Noon — dom­i­nated the air­waves and saw the band sell­ing out two shows at Auck­land’s Pow­er­sta­tion in a mat­ter of hours.

The Welling­ton band also drew crit­i­cal ac­claim for their sup­port slots at Ed Sheeran’s record-break­ing NZ Tour and they trav­elled through­out Europe open­ing for global sen­sa­tion Camila Ca­bello.

Their suc­cess has earned Drax Project four nom­i­na­tions at this year’s VNZMA’s, well and truly ce­ment­ing their rep­u­ta­tion as one of the most ex­cit­ing bands on the Kiwi scene right now.
