Powertool Records is proud to present ‘Bulletholes 4: Exploring the Unknown’ - the New Zealand roadshow.

The roadshow
An excitingly mixed bag of Powertool Records’ artists are heading to a venue near you this October on the ‘Bulletholes 4: Exploring the Unknown’ album release roadshow. Exploring the unknown (and the known) will be Changing Same (Matthew Bannister, ex-Sneaky Feelings), Sandra Bell, Come Down Kid, Nick Raven, Brother Love, Peter Gutteridge, Malcontent, A J Sharma, Dragstrip, Cat and Sock, Vorn, Gold Medal Famous, Black Wings and Grossburger will be traversing the length and breadth of New Zealand, in various formations at each show.

The tour covers 11 dates and 10 towns across 2 countries, kicks off at Raglan’s famous Yot Club.

The album
Groundbreaking compilation ‘Here Come the Bulletholes’ came out in 2003, and while it wasn’t the first release on Powertool Records, it was undoubtedly the launching pad for what has become one of NZ’s finest underground indie labels. Hailed as “a great slice of the Auckland music scene” (The Press), it captured an exciting time and some great songwriting, with tracks by local heroes Mary, Cabbage Bomber, the Demi Whores, Voom and Rainy Days to name but a few.

Powertool Records has now reached number 4 in the critically acclaimed series, and 11 years on, with ‘Bulletholes 4: Exploring the Unknown’, the horizons have expanded considerably. In addition to an abundance of local tracks, the album showcases some of the international artists who have joined the Powertool Records family. Attics and Cellars (Jason Zumpano from Zumpano, Destroyer, Sparrow…), Rough Church, The Black Watch and Azalia Snail hail from the ever-expanding USA Powertool roster. New Zealand goodness can be heard from legends such as Sandra Bell, Brother Love, Gold Medal Famous, Vorn, A. J. Sharma and One Man Bannister (ex-Sneaky Feelings’ Matthew Bannister) - plus a whole toolbox more from the length and breadth of the country. And the songwriting remains great.

The album’s title comes from Wellington’s Cat & Sock – their track of the same name aptly expresses the album’s range. Most of these songs are seeing their first release here – but the collection of great tracks on this album means that they surely won’t remain Unknown for long.
