With support from Monroe. Sleeping Dogs are on the road again, with a 15-date, two-month long tour of the country. This follows a hugely successful last twelve months for the band; in 2012 they completed their latest album, Death of a Muse, with veteran producer Greg Haver, and completed their first ever international tour of the UK and Europe.

This latest run of shows precedes the inevitable burst of creative activity as Sleeping Dogs, never ones to be let lie, embark on the recording of another album, with returning producer Haver, to capitalise on the success of their previous year’s efforts.

Catch Sleeping Dogs, plus local support artists, in April and May 2013, before they disappear to make their next masterpiece.

Monroe is a Wellington band to watch. Their sound is unique and still accessible with hints of early U2, Radiohead, The Beatles and Nirvana.

On stage the band present well and entertain the audience during and between tracks making for an excellent night out with friends. There is no room for arrogance here yet these guys love music and they clearly love how they play it which is refreshing to watch!

New Zealand has no shortage of quality musicians and this band is set to be one of best produced in recent years. I eagerly await how they will grow their sound from what has been a promising beginning.
