Hello to our friends across the ditch!
We are very sorry to announce that we're going to have to cancel this weekend's New Zealand shows due to my leg injury! It's very swollen and due to the amount of internal bleeding the doctor has said I can't fly because it would risk blood clots and other serious complications! We're very sorry to cancel and wouldn't be doing it if there was any other way! The shows are already being rescheduled for later in the year!
Love,
Wil xxx
**Note - carb on carb will still play Great Job in Palmerston North, any extra news on shows at the other 2 venues will be posted to the tour facebook event
All tickets purchased through UnderTheRadar.co.nz will be refunded this week

One of Australia’s hardest working bands is at it again… Melbourne locals The Smith Street Band have barely stopped to take a breath since the release of their third album, 2014’s Throw Me In The River. Now before heading into the abyss to work on its follow-up, the four-piece will give Throw Me In The River one last run of live shows across Australia, wrapping up the tour with dates in Auckland, Palmerston North and Wellington.

The last 18 months has seen the band take Throw Me In The River to rock fans everywhere, with two headline Australian tours, playing North American and European festivals, Splendour In The Grass and this year’s Australian Laneway Festival dates. They’re just back from their first North American headline tour where they played sold out shows in New York, Philadelphia and Boston. Next month, the band play seven Australian dates before crossing the ditch for just their second visit to New Zealand shores.

Released to critical acclaim Throw Me In The River landed triple j album of the week and debuted in the ARIA top 20 album chart, scored the band a nomination for ‘Best Independent Hard Rock, Heavy or Punk Album’ at the 2015 AIR Awards, ‘Live Act of the Year’ at the Rolling Stone Awards and took out the gong for ‘Best Live Band’ at The Age Music Victoria Awards. Single Surrender came in at #69 in triple j’s Hottest 100 and their Tony Abbott 7 release donated all its profits to the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre.

No stranger to top notch supports, the New Zealand leg of the tour will see The Smith Street Band joined by Auckland’s Carb on Carb on all three dates, Street Chant in Auckland and more support bands to be announced.

This June, join relentless road warriors The Smith Street Band in celebrating and saying farewell to Throw Me In The River around Australia and New Zealand.
