Melbourne indie folk five-piece The Paper Kites have announced dates for their New Zealand tour this October in support of their new album twelvefour, with special guest Patrick James.

Pre-dawn lyrics and lush, late night melodies: twelvefour is the gorgeous second album from The Paper Kites. It’s been four years since the quintet first formed and turned heads with EP Woodland (followed up by 2013’s EP Young North.) Then came their acclaimed 2013 longplayer, States . which delivered favourites such as ‘St Clarity’, ‘A Lesson From Mr Gray’ and ‘Young’ and saw the band travel to New Zealand for 2 sold out shows.

Determined to capture a bolder sound for album number 2, the band travelled to Seattle to record with Grammy-nominated producer Phil Ek (Father John Misty, Manchester Orchestra, Fleet Foxes) the result is twelvefour.

“This record is the sound of five people trying to make something they're proud of. And we really are,” enthuses Vocalist/Songwriter Sam Bentley. “As always I hope that the people who listen to our music continue to go along with us. We're really excited to be taking these songs on the road, and bringing everyone up to speed with where we've been.”
