Supporting Lorde will be Australian producer / songwriter / singer George Maple. Having written and produced for many other artists including Snakehips, Flume and Tkay Maidza, Maple has recently announced she will be releasing her long awaited debut album Lover on 27 October (through EMI Music). To celebrate the news, Maple revealed the video for her new single ‘Hero’. Lover follows an acclaimed EP, Vacant Space released via Australian label Future Classic in 2014, 2015’s “Where You End And I Begin” and “Gemini”, her masterful collaboration with What So Not. Most recently she has worked with DJ Snake on 2016’s “Talk”, a re-crafted  version of her original track "Talk Talk".

Since forming in 2013, Mermaidens have played countless live shows around the country, captivating audiences and capturing praise along the way. Lily West on vocals, joined by Gussie Larkin on guitar/vocals and Abe Hollingsworth on drums, this trio are a cool, mesmerising dip into realms of post-punk, grunge and gothic blues, the entangled riff-based melodies of Larkin and West driven by Hollingsworth's fluid and dynamic percussion. The band released their album ‘Perfect Body’ this year featuring Satsuma and Sunstone


Yumi Zouma

Yumi Zouma

(8 NOV – CHRISTCHURCH SHOW ONLY)

Few artists find a committed fanbase without having ever played live, but in 2014, Yumi Zouma endeared themselves to listeners before their first band practice. Having only just revealed their debut album Yoncalla last year, their latest album Willowbank, which was recorded entirely in the group’s home country of New Zealand, features tracks such as the lead single ‘December’ and ‘Persephone’.


French for Rabbits

French for Rabbits

(9 NOV – CHRISTCHURCH SHOW ONLY)

French for Rabbits is the project of musician Brooke Singer and band, formed after creating a series of lo-fi dream folk recordings in the small coastal township of Waikuku Beach.The band have toured their ethereal dream pop extensively through Europe. During which time they opened for admired songwriter Agnes Obel, featured twice on The Vampire Diaries, and have garnered millions of listens online. They have just come off a month long tour in Europe where they made their debut performance in Denmark, and opened for renowned singer Marlon Williams. Their second album ‘The Weight of Melted Snow’ was released to high praise in New Zealand earlier this year.


TAPZ

TAPZ

(WELLINGTON SHOW ONLY)

With widespread support both locally and internationally under his belt, the buzz is loud for TAPZ. Having already brought his electrifying energy to the same stage as heavy-hitters like A$AP Ferg, Jeremih, Tinie Tempah, Hermitude, G-Eazy and Danny Brown and BANKS, his meteoric trajectory continues with a brand new EP Beautiful Nightmare slated for 24 November this year.


Drax Project

Drax Project

(12 NOV – AUCKLAND SHOW ONLY)

From humble beginnings as the late night drums and sax busking duo of Jazz school students Shaan Singh and Matt Beachen, Drax Project's steady rise has recently seen them closing the main stage at Sound Splash, playing a key role in making 2017's Homegrown the most successful ever, along with opening for Six60 on their AU tour, and their future classic Auckland Town Hall show. After releasing their well-received first EP in April 2016, Drax Project revealed singles 'Falling Out of Sight' and 'So Lost' to round out the year. Drax Project have a busy release schedule for 2017, with a live record, collaborations and a new record of originals all in the pipeline. 


David Dallas

David Dallas

(14 NOV – AUCKLAND SHOW ONLY)

Arguably the biggest innovator in hip-hop New Zealand has seen in two decades, David Dallas has sold out shows across New Zealand, Australia and the United States, released three chart-topping albums, opened for huge acts including Eminem's Rapture Tour (NZ) and received a long list of accolades. Building up to the release of his next record, David Dallas hinted at a new direction and sound with the heavy social commentary of 'Don’t Rate That' - something solidified on the 2017 release of his new album Hood Country Club.With rave reviews rolling in and a massive Australian tour just around the corner, Hood Country Club seems set to add to Dallas Dallas' impressive track record. An artist that continues to push the boundaries, it also cements him as one of the country's biggest innovators in hip-hop.
 


Matthew Young

Matthew Young

(15 NOV – AUCKLAND SHOW ONLY)

Matthew Young emerged onto Soundcloud shrouded in mystique; as he began to seep his future-sexed alt-B tracks across the internet, building into his first major project titled DIVE, an EP released mid 2015. DIVE quickly found a pedestal on music blogs and garnered him the attention of labels and publishers from across the globe. Soon after, Matthew released his track ‘For You - Low Life’, which showcased more of his fluency as a producer.

Frontier Touring (Australia & New Zealand) and Eccles Entertainment (New Zealand) are thrilled to confirm Lorde for an 12-date run across the Antipodes this November. All eyes are on the meteoric return of one of pop’s most celebrated talents with an all new album, Melodrama, and captivating live show.

‘LORDE IS BACK!!!!!’ – coupdemain NZ

‘An unprecedented kaleidoscopic take on modern pop music...’ – Pedestrian TV

‘Lorde has resurfaced as clever and mysterious as she first emerged’ – Noisey AU

The tour begins in Lorde’s home country – New Zealand, where she will play six shows before arriving in Australia for the remaining dates in Perth, Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne as well as a headline slot at Canberra’s Spilt Milk Festival.

At the age of just 16, Lorde released her first album Pure Heroine (Universal), breaking into the international market and later going on to win two Grammy Awards including the coveted Album of the Year. The album peaked at #1 in over 20 countries, including Australia, New Zealand and America and featuring chart topping tracks ‘Royals’, ‘Tennis Court’ and ‘Team’.

Now 20, Lorde has truly grown in her formidable talent. Her forthcoming second studio album Melodrama (out now through Universal Music) is one of the most anticipated records of the year. Produced by Lorde, the esteemed Jack Antonoff and Frank Dukes, the album was recorded between Jack’s flat and Electric Lady Studios.

Fronted by the release of three stunning songs – current single ‘Perfect Places’, ‘Green Light’ and ‘Liability’ as well as today’s surprise release ‘Sober’ – Melodrama’s tasters are critically acclaimed in the recorded and live arena. Lorde’s stunning debut performance of ‘Green Light’ on Saturday Night Live made international waves, reminding us all of her compelling vocals and stage presence.  

Following her 2017 TV debut, Lorde went onto play the main stage of Coachella showcasing four of her new songs to critical acclaim.

‘Perfect Places’ is a glorious popstravaganza that captures Lorde at her best:

thoughtful, melancholic, poetry and saying what her peers are thinking.’ – The Spinoff NZ

‘The strength of her newer material was also on display’ – Rolling Stone  

‘Everybody loves Lorde. Her combination of dream-pop music and heartbreakingly human lyrics appeal to everyone.’ - Music Junkee AU

Finally, Lorde returns to New Zealand and Australia. Be there to see her take to the stage this November!
