Mac DeMarco's one-off NZ show announced for January 2020

Jangle-pop crooner Mac DeMarco has announced a return to New Zealand in January 2020, in support of his latest tour 'Here Comes Mac DeMarco'. Hitting Auckland's prestigious Town Hall on Wednesday 8 January, this will be Mac's first headlining Kiwi show in four years! Joining him as support act is Wellington-based dream pop singer and instrumentalist, Fazerdaze.

Mac DeMarco's fourth album 'Here Comes The Cowboy' was described as his "masterpiece" (Q magazine) upon its release in May. Written, recorded and mixed at his Los Angeles studio, the album was the debut release on the eponymous Mac's Record Label. The Canadian-born artist has always taken a more contemplative approach to songwriting, and on 'Here Comes The Cowboy' he's at his thoughtful and introspective best.

"On stage, he's all pranks and jokes; on record he's largely attempting to get at the core of universal human ideas." – Pitchfork

"'Here Comes the Cowboy' proves DeMarco can still own his psychedelic, lighthearted sound, while adding something fresh and novel." – Sydney Morning Herald

"The slacker hero slows things down on his fourth full-length album, finding catharsis in gentle instrumentation and thoughtful lyrics." – NME

Mac's New Zealand date is announced on the heels of an immense international touring schedule, including northern hemisphere summer festival sets at 'Bonnaroo', 'Festival de Beauregard', 'Montreaux Jazz Festival', 'Primavera Sound', 'Coachella', 'All Points East' and 'Iceland Airwaves'. Last month, Mac lent his curatorial skills to 'Mac DeMarco Will See You Now'—a day festival in Margate, United Kingdom—that featured the likes of Thurston Moore, Aldous Harding, Yellow Days and Amyl and the Sniffers.
