The Veils Announce 9 Show New Zealand Tour

Monday 12 October 2009

The Veils have announced a 9 show "coming home" tour across New Zealand in November.

The band will be appearing in Queenstown, Dunedin, Leigh, Auckland, Hamilton, Wellington, Palmerston North and Napier and also at Christchurch's Southern Amp festival.

An Emerald City will be the opener for all shows except Auckland (it's James Duncan at that show) and Southern Amp.

“Finn Andrews, the striking frontman of The Veils has a streak of lovelorn bleakness as deep as the night is long” said the LA Times as they reviewed a recent show by the Antipodean/UK quartet. “His creepy preacher hat, and an unshaven, alabaster complexion that suggests he lives off a varied diet of scotches, only accented the band's sense of gnawing doom -- though it was leavened with melodic sweetness and a lovely ear for arrangement detail.” The Veils’ third Rough Trade album Sun Gangs has been universally hailed as their best and sees Finn and the band striking a rich vein of form, capturing a emotional range in their music from joyous indie pop to compulsively gloomy epics worthy of the Doors.

Tickets for all shows (except Southen Amp) are on sale now from Eventfinder.co.nz.
