New Zealand Maori metallers, Alien Weaponry, have announced they will be releasing a strictly limited 7″ vinyl including the tracks ‘Ahi Kā’ and ‘Blinded’. This is ahead of their Download Festival 2019 main stage set. This will be limited to 400 units.
This is the first new material released from Alien Weaponry since their debut Tu in 2018.
This is what the band have to say about the new tracks:
“In 1952, in preparation for a Royal visit by Her Majesty the Queen, the Auckland City Council, in a misguided attempt to beautify the city, evicted the local Ngāti Whātua people from their village at Ōkahu Bay and burned it to the ground.”
“Relationships are difficult to understand at the best of times but when you are 16 and on tour all over the world these things are bound to get confusing and hard to reconcile. Blinded is about a very personal trip down this rabbit hole”
“We have had a very busy touring schedule ever since the release of Tū and we are stoked we managed to record two new tracks in the short break we had back home in New Zealand. We can’t wait to play the new songs live!“
