Avalanche City will tour New Zealand this October, with support from Benny Tipene.

Dave Baxter (Avalanche City) and his touring band will bring the music from recent album - We Are for The Wild Places - to life on the tour of the same name; across four dates taking in Auckland, Christchurch, Dunedin and Wellington.

We Are for The Wild Places recently debuted at #3 on the Official Top 40 Albums Chart (and also peaked at #1 on the iTunes album chart).

The album’s beautiful first single, ‘Inside Out’ has been a chart and radio smash hit – it is currently #1 Airplay after five consecutive weeks in the top spot; while the single also peaked at #1 on the sales chart and has remained consistently in the top 10 on iTunes.

The second official single from the album, ‘Keep Finding A Way’ is an upbeat and catchy pop tune, recently serviced to radio.

We Are for The Wild Places (mixed by Death Cab For Cutie’s Chris Walla) is a mature and fitting follow-up to Avalanche City’s debut album - Our New Life Above the Ground, which spawned the Silver Scroll-winning single, ‘Love Love Love’ (currently at 2.3million views on YouTube!).

Dave Baxter is looking forward to performing the new album in front of a live audience, alongside his touring band consisting of Steve Thomas (drums), Ben Devery (keys), Dave Love (hammered dulcimer) and Finn Scholes (trumpet).

Supporting Avalanche City at all four concert dates is another incredibly talented New Zealand musician, Benny Tipene.

Armed with an acoustic guitar and a cheeky smile, Benny has become a firm Kiwi favourite since hitting the spotlight in 2013 with debut single ‘Walking On Water’. His debut EP Toulouse followed in 2014 and spawned the Gold hits ‘Make You Mine’ and ‘Lonely’. Then came album Bricks, with another Gold single, ‘Step On Up’.

The Avalanche City We Are for The Wild Places tour, with support from Benny Tipene, is proudly presented by More fm.
