FAR EAST MOVEMENT ANNOUNCE TOUR OF NZ THIS SEPTEMBER!
Champagne at the ready – fans are sure to rejoice at the news current ‘it’ band FAR EAST MOVEMENT are returning Australian shores and making their first trip to NZ this September for a series of shows!
The US electro-hop group rocketed to notoriety with smash hit ‘Like A G6’ and show no signs of settling down any time soon, especially now that their brand new album Dirty Bass (out through Universal) has been unleashed.
Latest single ‘Live My Life’ features Justin Bieber and has been described as an ‘anthemic all-night dance party’.
Having already toured alongside some of the biggest, hottest names in the business including Lady Gaga, Jay-Z, Rihanna and Lil Wayne, Far East Movement can’t wait to take the party from the streets of LA back to the dance floors of Australia and New Zealand.
Far East Movement will be joined in Auckland, with Jupiter Project, they are the collaboration of vocalist Correia and music producer Marty Rich. The two met at an end of semester party while studying at college and went into the studio in 2009 to try their hand at producing tracks together. The result was a refreshing sound encompassing genres like indie rock, alternative hip-hop and electronica, gaining comparison to the likes of N.E.R.D, Theophilus London and Phoenix.
Singles ‘Catch Me’, and ‘Hook Up Girl’ have made waves at kiwi radio and the group are set to release their debut album later this year.
Don’t miss the chance to get your dance on to one of the world’s hottest bands – Far East Movement!
