Written and recorded over three countries and two continents, The Colossus is the debut album from Cairo Knife Fight.

The Colossus sees frontman Nick Gaffaney (a man who has drummed for many of New Zealand’s leading songwriters); expanding his writing horizons to include working with a revolving cast of some of the most accomplished guitarists and songwriters from around the globe. From New Zealand musicians Aaron Tokona, Joel Haines, Laughton Kora and William Knapp, American Legend Mark Lanegan (Screaming Trees, Queens of The Stone Age) and Los Angeles producers/musicians Tyler Fournames (Marilyn Manson) and John Anderson (Banks).

This diversity in writing partners has seen an album develop of great subtlety and dynamism while still maintaining that fierce and razor sharp intensity Cairo Knife Fight is known for.

“Written with and influenced by a number of extraordinarily talented friends from all over the world - some of whom I hadn't even met when the process started - it's a genuine culmination of all the experiences Cairo Knife Fight has had, but also a launchpad to the band's future musical direction"

And speaking of talent, joining Nick for this run of NZ release shows is American, Grammy Award-winning guitarist, songwriter and producer George Pajon Jr. who in addition to being one of Black Eyed Peas’ key performing and recording musicians, has co-written many of the group’s most popular hits and has a list of credits that include Carlos Santana, Sting, Macy Gray, Kelis, Nas, Damien Marley, Sérgio Mendes, July Black, and various other artists.
