The Pop Group Announce Auckland Concert

Seminal 1970s punk band The Pop Group will be performing one show in Auckland in a few weeks.

The King's Arms gig, due to take place on Wednesday 4th March, will follow the release of their first album in 35 years. Citizen Zombie was produced by legendary British producer Paul Epworth and will be out on Monday 23rd February.

The Pop Group formed in Bristol in 1977 and drew on an eclectic range of influences from free jazz, conscious funk, heavyweight dub to avant-garde experimentalism. Alongside contemporaries like Public Image Limited, This Heat and Throbbing Gristle, they were at the forefront of a musical period marked out by its ground-breaking innovation. The Pop Group originally disbanded in 1980.

Reforming in 2010, the group have played a number of festivals across the globe including All Tomorrow’s Parties, Summer Sonic and Primavera, and just recently completed a 7-date UK tour in support of the reissued We Are Time and new archival compilation Cabinet Of Curiosities.

Tickets are on sale from Under the Radar.
