The Jungle Giants Hits NZ Shores For The First Time This September

Aussie indie rockers, The Jungle Giants, will launch their debut performance in Auckland this September.

The Brisbane-based quartet are making a whirlwind trip across the Kiwi soil coinciding with the highly-anticipated release of their third album 'Quiet Ferocity' on July 7. Their tour came hot on the heels following their recent appearance on Australia’s favourite regional touring festival, Groovin' The Moo.

Featuring two of their latest singles, 'Feel The Way I Do' is about to break two million streams on Spotify while catchy as hell anthem on Triple J 'On Your Way Down' shines a light on The Jungle Giants’ ability to combine simple arrangements with melodic intensity.

"Not like a bashing your head way, more like a rumbly building intensity. It makes you want to dance, but also clench your fists." - Sam Hales, Jungle Giants' frontman

Supporting The Jungle Giants is Auckland indie-pop band, Young Lyre. A hard-working five-piece, Young Lyre have built a reputation for their exciting live performance and are looking forward to playing their hit singles 'Winter', ‘Night Swimming’ and more at REC this September.

The Jungle Giants’ latest 10-track record showcases a seamless creative pairing of songwriting and diverse production methods. It marks a key stylistic and musical evolution for the band, creating a genre-bending universe that’s entirely their own.

Racking up more than 30 million Spotify streams, the band have played sold-out headline dates and appeared at all major Australian festivals. They have also played shows in LA, New York, Toronto, Austin, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, and Jakarta. Now Kiwi fans and guaranteed soon-to-be fans will get the chance to see for themselves what all the hype is about.
