Katchafire Gig Guide

Irie Australian Tour Aug/Sep 2012

Tour Announcement

Katchafire, one of the hardest working and most respected collectives to come out of New Zealand, have evolved into a formidable force on the international music scene.

Off the back of the release of their platinum selling, fourth studio album On The Road Again, a nonstop 2012 has seen the legendary Aotearoa roots rockers smash a mammoth 25 date headline tour of the USA and Hawaii selling out iconic venues such as House Of Blues and The Mezzanine, a headline tour of Brazil (with a documentary in the making) while over in the UK the band have been nominated for Best International Band at the British Reggae Music Awards.

They will return to the USA over summer to play the prestigious Sierra Nevada World music festival, before landing in Australia late August for a month long national tour including headlining the 10th Anniversary of the Cairns Reggaetown Festival.

The eight-piece band, that hosts five extraordinary singer songwriters, deliver one of the most authentic reggae shows around today. Their world famous, distinctly NZ sound, is backed by a blistering live show packed with hits. With Breathtaking vocal harmonies and a magnetic on stage presence the momentum just continues to build, and has lead to multiple platinum records, prestigious awards and critical acclaim.

Katchafire will blaze into Australian spring with their iconic reggae sound, lighting the way out of the winter chill with a national tour this August / September.

“Katchafire just keep coming up with goods. Their songwriting ability over the years has become second-to-none and time has allowed them to develop older songs to a point of perfection.” artsHub

“The band has matured into one of the most cherished, original live reggae bands in the world.” The Brag

“The crowd reaction indicated that almost every song played was a crowd favourite in itself.” Fasterlouder

“…They transformed the place into a freedom-founded club where the only rule was to enjoy the music. No external force could stop the fire!” KDHX 88.1

On The Road Again is in stores now through Lion House Records (www.lionhouserecords.com), Katchafire will be touring nationally this August / September.
