Lawrence Arabia 'Chant Darling Tour'

Where: Cassette Number Nine, 9 Vulcan Lane, CBD, Auckland

Restrictions: R18

Listed by: Charlotte Ryan

With his multi-talented band, Broadsword, in tow . . . Lawrence Arabia finally returns to New Zealand to tour his new album, “Chant Darling”, which is out 9 March on Honorary Bedouin/Rhythmethod.

Having toured throughout the UK and Europe during 2008 with such acts as Feist, Okkervil River, Camera Obscura and NZ’s Ruby Suns and Liam Finn, Lawrence Arabia and Broadsword are back from abroad to take their full spectrum live aural britzkrieg/lovely pop music to the Aotearoan masses.

They’ll be playing cuts from “Chant Darling,” along with the better numbers from 2006’s self-titled debut, and there’s a definite possibility of Reduction Agents covers and gratuitous guest appearances from anyone of numerous former collaborators and friends.

Joining Lawrence Arabia and Broadsword along their route will be some of their favourite bands, including The Sneaks, who double as the members of Broadsword and are playing in Christchurch and Dunedin; Cassette, with whom they join up for a double billing in Wellington, and Dictaphone Blues and Teacups who are playing the final extravaganza in Auckland.
