Vector Arena by arrangement with Artist Voice is proud to announce the return of bohemian rock'n’roll outfit Howling Bells to New Zealand to play at The Tuning Fork this September. The band returns to the country for the first time since 2006 in support of their recently released fourth album, Heartstrings.

“Like their fellow Australian Nick Cave, Howling Bells’ music lives on dirty plains and in lonely churchyards, weaving pre-dawn paranoia into a woozy tapestry of sex and death.

"And Juanita’s extraordinary voice curls around the haunting guitar lines like cigarette smoke." – NME

“...fearless vocals and beautifully put-together instrumentation... - Drowned In Sound

Forming in Australia in 2005, Howling Bells relocated to London where they filled their sound with elements of Americana, ambient electronica and their deliciously dark brand of lyrics. They combine the honeyed vocals of front woman, Juanita Stein, lo-fi riffs from guitarist brother Joel and the chest-banging beats of drummer Glenn Moule, all galvanised by the recent addition of London-born and bred bass player, Gary Daines.

June 2014 saw Howling Bells return with their stunning new album Heartstrings, recorded at London’s Assault and Battery Studios, with producers Catherine J Marks (Foals, PJ Harvey, The Vaccines) and Alan Moulder (Arctic Monkeys, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Killers, My Bloody Valentine and Depeche Mode).

Howling Bells have always been a hard-touring band, and arena supports with The Killers and Coldplay and tours with Elbow, Editors and Placebo only heightened their enthusiasm for reaching out to their audience, “I’m desperate to tour and connect with an audience again – there’s no way for an artist to gauge people’s reactions to a song unless you’re playing them live,” says front woman Juanita “Twitter’s not gonna do it, Facebook’s not gonna do it, online comments aren’t gonna do it. I need to feel them.”
