King Missile IV are making their very first visit to New Zealand.

The latest, perhaps greatest version of the unique and hugely influential King Missile is led by poet, songwriter, author, and intellectual property analyst – whatever that is - John S. Hall, who will be bringing his current band members Azalia Snail and Dan West (who are also known as the duo LoveyDove).

From the band’s formation in 1986 and right throughout the 1990s, King Missile released a string of singles - and albums - that were resoundingly embraced by New Zealand’s student radio network: songs of note include ‘Take Stuff From Work, ‘Sensitive Artist’, ‘Jesus Was Way Cool’, ‘Gary and Melissa’, ‘Cheesecake Truck’, ‘Martin Scorsese’ and the hugely popular ‘Detachable Penis’ – just to name a few.

King Missile disbanded in 1994, and in 1996 Hall released a solo album, ‘The Body Has a Head’, and in 1998 formed King Missile III. Hall has also had two books published: 1997's Jesus Was Way Cool, a collection of 40 poems which became songs on King Missile/Hall albums; and 2007's Daily Negations, a dark-humoured satire of self-help books. Hall went on to study law, co-founding a small entertainment law firm, and later taking on a law-related job at a major law firm.

John S. Hall continues to perform on a regular basis - solo, as a poet and musician – and more recently with the newly-formed King Missile IV, comprising Snail and West.
