The invasion by Kiwi bands continues apace, with Shapeshifter (pronounded ‘Sheepshufter’ in the local dialect) returning to Oz for a tour this October and November fresh from recording in their Berlin Studio and playing at this year’s UK Glastonbury and Big Chill Festivals. Releasing four albums and playing countless sold-out shows, Shapeshifter’s ability to get their massive crowds into a groove that doesn’t let up for several hours has been honed over hundreds if not thousands of gigs over the years.

Smashing it out at many Aussie festivals, including Parklife and Big Day Out, New Zealand’s Best Live Act will be back on our shores to rip up festival stages this Summer. Releasing three consecutive number one independent albums on their own terms and label, Truetone Recordings, Shapeshifter have the studio smarts to back up what they deliver live on stage.
