alt-J Return to New Zealand this December

Watch for an electrifying performance of British rock band alt-J as they make their way to Auckland and Wellington this December.

With thousands of Kiwi fans thrilled about the upcoming shows, a second show has been added in Auckland.

Quietly, resolutely, impressively and singularly, alt-J has become one of the biggest rock groups of all time famed by their muscular sound of cutting edge innovation and pumped by a melodically bleeding heart. One of the most successful bands of the millennium who are now on their comeback to give a lasting impression to their fans as the year comes to a close.

Their famous single 'Adeline' has been released as a further taste of what’s to come on alt-J’s highly anticipated album 'Relaxer' which will be released on Friday 2 June. Ahead of its release, '3WW' as well as 'In Cold Blood' have both been made available to fans.

The release of Relaxer follows 'This Is All Yours' which debuted at no. 2 in Australia and no. 1 in the UK. Their debut 'An Awesome Wave' won the 2012 Mercury Prize and an Ivor Novello Award. Between them, the two albums have sold in excess of two million copies worldwide and their songs have been streamed well over 1 billion times.
