The Kin who Kiwi music fans embraced last year with the GOLD #2 chart single “Get On It” are please to announce three New Zealand tour dates. A quick visit in May 2013, gave a brief insight to the trios outstanding musicianship and live performances.

The Kin join the rarefied air of an international group, which has gone GOLD in New Zealand before anywhere else in the world.

“ We had such a blast on our last tour with the crowds in Christchurch and Auckland.” says Isaac Koren. “To get back now after being out on the road for the past year and showcase our new songs is going to fantastic.”

During their tours, The Kin also are known for causing trouble with their signature “Musical Robberies” where they burst into a randomly chosen high-traffic public area, such as a diner or airport . On the groups last visit the robbed JJ Feeney from The Edge, passengers on the Devonport Ferry and were being kicked out of a lecture at Victoria University. Most recently the group robbed a Chicago Police Station !!

The Kin have established themselves as firm favourites with local audiences, given their unique New York/Australian blend and dedicated approach to live touring. They will return to our shores and traverse the country again this October, playing all the favourites from their most recent EP ‘Get On It’ and previous album material, and have promised to throw in a few new tracks for fans!

The Kin have had a busy year so far. Fresh off their 2013 Australian and US tours supporting P!NK, the power trio enjoyed a two-month headlining tour which brought their explosive live shows to 33 cities across North America. Following this tour they returned to Australia for a special one-off support slot for Coldplay’s exclusive Enmore Theatre, Sydney show.

The Kin, comprised of Australian-raised brothers Isaac (vocals, keys) and Thorald Koren (vocals, guitar, keys), and the US born Shakerleg (drums, percussion), have enraptured live audiences worldwide with their powerful vocal harmonies, hard-driving guitar and percussion and captivating stage presence. They are masters of the gritty, propulsive rock sound that comes across best during their live performances.

The band brings the same unique brand of creativity and high-energy to every stage they step onto. US reviews have been effusive: “Besides their flash mob-style impromptu concerts, the band has a drummer, known only as Shakerleg, who plays the drums with his bare hands. The band has a unique vibe, and they have an incredibly tight sound on stage” and it is clear that “the band operates under the assumption that every time they step on stage, it might be the last — and they play accordingly, no holds barred.”
