Indie-rock four-piece MAKO ROAD have just released their surefire biggest hit yet Don’t Keep Me Waiting and to celebrate the band have just announced a national New Zealand tour! Their highly anticipated debut album Stranger Days was released on Friday 30th July and their album release tour was sadly halted by COVID, we’re back with new dates to finish it off with their Wellington, Christchurch and Dunedin shows all back on!
With little airplay to date, Mako Road have built a substantial and loyal fanbase. They have received over 60 million streams and been certified Gold and Platinum multiple times across their earlier EP’s and single releases. Their heavy touring schedule has seen them translate their hazy summer psych grooves into an explosive live set, resulting in multiple sold-out Australasian tours, with their name appearing on festival bills including Splendour In The Grass, Electric Avenue, Sound Splash, Bay Dreams and Rhythm and Vines. They’ve also supported acts including Rudimental, L.A.B, Leisure, Shapeshifter and Ziggy Alberts.
The long-awaited debut album Stranger Days brilliantly captures the band’s epic indie-rock sound and includes earlier singles Helicopter, Surfing on Mars plus lead single Don’t Keep Me Waiting. It was recorded in the renowned & secluded studio environment of Wellington’s The Surgery and produced by the band’s bassist, Connor Jaine, engineered by James Goldsmith (Mermaidens, Beastwars, Into Orbit) and mastered by Chris Chetland (Savage, Snoop Dogg, Lorde, Drax Project, Scribe).
Stranger Days was released worldwide on July 30 and has already been digested by their original fans and made a bunch of new ones.
Mako Road have fast become the most exciting independent act in New Zealand and the new album Stranger Days is the beginning of much, much more. The sky’s the limit for Mako Road band members Rhian Ward, Connor Jaine, Connor McErlich and Robbie Day.
These shows will sell out fast. Get your tickets the second they go on sale!
