Henry | Alien Weaponry
The Morning After with Ben and Josh | 24 November 2020
Josh had a yarn to Henry from Alien Weaponry about their upcoming Christchurch show, this Friday 27th November.
Waipu’s favourite sons Alien Weaponry are heading out on the road this November and December for the ‘Level One Tour’. Fresh from a newly inked management deal with RSE Group (home to metal greats Slayer, Mastodon, Ghost and Gojira), Alien Weaponry are armed with new music and a crushing live show.
Known for their emphatic, energetic thrash metal songs that whakapapa back to stories of their ancestors, Alien Weaponry are set to conquer Aotearoa this Summer. Beginning in Tauranga, The Level One Tour will see Alien Weaponry on their biggest New Zealand tour yet, playing six shows throughout Aotearoa, finishing up at Auckland’s Powerstation, the first time the band have headlined the iconic venue.
Heralding in a new era for Alien Weaponry, this will be the first time on the road with new bass player Tūranga Morgan-Edmonds, a long-time friend of the band and former classmate of drummer Henry de Jong.
Whilst 2020 may not have been the touring heavy year the band had in mind, they have used this time to write and record a new album, which is due for release in 2021. New Zealand fans will be the first in the world to hear new material from the forthcoming album live, alongside favourites from their award-winning 2018 debut Tū.
