Supermodel and Sleeping Dogs are headlining the Live and Loud summer tour for 2012, bringing their exciting stage shows to Raglan, Tauranga, Oakura and Wellington this month.

Both bands are hot on the heels of their UK-produced albums released in 2011, and are anticipating the next leg of the Live and Loud tour after their recent successful musical excursions to Auckland, Hamilton, Napier and Palmerston North over the last few weeks.

Supermodel have been receiving rave reviews of their current LP, To the Mountains, with some critics calling the record “a real mover and shaker of a release”; that its “colour and punch... sets Supermodel apart from other bands on the Wellington landscape”. The record went straight to top position on the iTunes rock charts at the time of its release. Supermodel are a brilliant live act; tight vocal harmonies meld perfectly with concise and catchy rock arrangements that have beautiful sing-along choruses. They are not to be missed.

Sleeping Dogs are also touring their current album and have received similar reviews. Their songs have been described as “unavoidable, deep and unapologetic”, while their sound and style is “extravagant, big, epic and over-the-top, with long, long instrumental parts”. They, like Supermodel, secured the services of highly sought-after UK producer Greg Haver, along with the in-house mixing talents of Clint Murphy, giving their album Myth Reducer its huge, classic rock sound. The video of their single, Myth Reducer has been receiving airplay and music television rotation.

Catch these two magnificent bands around the North Island while you can this summer, before they both hole themselves up to write their highly-anticipated new albums.
