Wolf Alice have been shortlisted for the Mercury Prize Album Of The Year for the second time, for their acclaimed sophomore album Visions Of A Life.

Wolf Alice’s Auckland show will now take place on Sunday 30 September (prev. Thu 20 Sep) at the originally announced venue, Powerstation.

‘With a reputation for a ferocious live performance, Wolf Alice stuck an exclamation mark on a tour that has seen them scoring universally positive reviews. Ellie Rowsell is clearly the jewel in the band's crown, her stellar voice and magnetic presence reason enough to watch.’ – The Music

Wolf Alice are not just another indie band’. NME’s statement about the North London quartet is a simple one, but it captures the powerful waves they’re making both in studio and live. Frontier Touring are thrilled to announce that they will return to New Zealand this September to perform an exclusive headline show with plenty of bite!

The band’s roots go back to 2010, when vocalist Ellie Roswell and guitarist Joff Oddie came together to make tunes inflected with a mix of rock, folk, grunge and shoegaze. Joel Amey (drums) and Theo Ellis (bassist) completed the group a few years later, culminating in the release of their debut EP Blush.

That momentum continued with the group’s debut album My Love is Cool (2015), a critical and commercial success. The gold-certified release hit #2 on the UK charts, garnered multiple nominations including the Mercury Prize and Grammys, and led to the band claiming the NME Award for Best Live Band.

Last year’s second record Visions of a Life, recorded in Los Angeles, took things to new heights on stellar tracks including the slow-burning ‘Don’t Delete The Kisses’, and ‘Beautifully Unconventional’ with its beast of a groove. Fittingly describing the album but also apt for the band’s power onstage, Rolling Stone asserted ‘The stakes are high, and the payoffs are real.’

Live is where Wolf Alice’s combination of bite and beauty is most strongly felt. The powerhouse quartet have dominated their own headline shows and supported Queens Of The Stone Age in the US and will support both Liam Gallagher in the UK and the Foo Fighters in Europe in the coming months, before embarking on a string of northern summer festivals.

This will be Wolf Alice’s first ever headline show in New Zealand after an electrifying set at Laneway in January of this year:

‘It was Wolf Alice who really raised the bar, delivering a feisty post-grunge riot that had punters moshing in the mid-afternoon sun. – NZ Herald

In amongst all this, Wolf Alice have contributed to iconic soundtracks including 2016’s Ghostbusters and T2 Trainspotting. If there’s a soundtrack though that’s simple yet dynamic, brash yet beautiful, it’s the one that the band have been carving out for themselves. You won’t want to miss out on these guys when they hit our shores again for this latest headline run!
