The Paper Kites fly back to NZ roads this March

Australian indie-folk outfit The Paper Kites are about to cross the Tasman sea once again, bringing their critically-acclaimed 'Where You Live' tour to Christchurch's Blue Smoke, Wellington's San Fran and Auckland's The Tuning Fork this March.

The Paper Kites last toured New Zealand with their 'twelvefour' tour in 2015. Untiring and passionate, the band capped off a phenomenal 2018 with two critically-acclaimed album releases—'On The Train Ride Home' in April and 'On The Corner Where You Live' in September.

"After spending so much time touring and recording overseas over the past few years we are so happy to finally bring these new songs to New Zealand. We can't wait to head back to some of our favourite cities around the country and share this new album with our home crowd!"

The Paper Kites have earned a loyal, organic fan base all over the world. With monumental streaming numbers, 200 shows across the world in just under three years and recent Gold accreditation in the US with nearly 700,000 copies of their track ‘Bloom’ being sold in the country, The Paper Kites are Australia's quiet achievers.

Co-produced with Grammy Award winner Peter Katis (Interpol, The National), the latest 'On The Corner Where You Live' album edifies the band's world class songwriting prowess. The album was produced at Peter's studio in Connecticut—a 120-year old Victorian era home that The Paper Kites lived and recorded in for five weeks.

"It's a collection of stories about these characters all living in an apartment building; I wanted to capture moments, feelings, it's about people and their stories," says lead vocalist, Sam.

Meditative yet complex, 'On The Corner Where You Live' is best listened to from start to finish as each story seeps into the next. It is an album for loyal fans of The Paper Kites but also one that's guaranteed to draw new audiences too.
