MISS JUNE CONFIRM U.S. AND EUROPEAN TOUR DATES IN MAY

INCLUDES MAY 8 IN LOS ANGELES AND MAY 11 IN NYC

SHARE VIDEO FOR “ORCHID”


 DEBUT ALBUM BAD LUCK PARTY

OUT VIA FRENCHKISS

 

New Zealand’s Miss June is returning to the road. Known for putting on a commanding live show that will often sees singer Amanda Liddell swinging from the rafters, the band have just confirmed two U.S. shows — May 8 at Los Angeles’ La Cita and Mercury Lounge in NYC on May 11. Following that the band head to Europe for a tour that concludes in Berlin on May 29. All dates are listed below.

Last summer saw the band release their debut album Bad Luck Party (Frenchkiss Records) and today the band also share a video for the LP’s “Orchid.” It was shot guerrilla style while the band had a day off in Nashville during their 2019 North American tour. Directed by Nick Giumenti, it serves to capture the band in their natural habitat: road warriors. He notes, “We put everything together extremely quickly as they only had one day here in Nashville while on tour, but they were fantastic performers and fully willing to try some of my more adventurous ideas. Massive credit to them for being willing to show up early and film for 8 hours and then go play a kick ass show the same night.” Of the track Liddell notes, “‘Orchid’ represents an ongoing rhetoric about loss, subjugation, the strain of pursuing freedom in love and life itself.

Miss June – Orchid
Raised in the embers of punk rock and described as “some unholy union between Sonic Youth and Le Tigre,” the Auckland four piece harness jagged, noisy guitars filtered through the unrivaled stage presence of Liddell, guitarist Jun Park, bass player Chris Marshall and drummer Tom Leggett. Combining elements of post-punk, no-wave and rock, Miss June hold close their DIY roots while creating a blistering, reckless sound full of melodic hooks and overdriven riffs that are at once immediately recognizable and yet entirely their own.

Praise for Miss June:

“A nod back at a pantheon of powerful statements and sounds… calibrated for 2019 ears craving a clever, irresistible outlet.” NY TIMES

“bolstered, anthemic pop-punk jam for the next generation” Consequence of Sound

“Packed with blistering guitars and an abrasive attitude, [“Enemies”] gives their post-punk vigor a revamped, no-wave finish and will make you want to reevaluate who your friends really are.” Alternative Press

“New Zealand’s Miss June make catchy, punky alternative rock,” Brooklyn Vegan

“Honestly, I’m not sure I can remember a song recently that rocks and melts faces as much as this one. It’s under 3 minutes long and doesn’t let up in its intensity for one second.” Austin Town Hall on “Enemies”

“a creative forward thinking piece of punk music… this band are brilliant.” BBC Radio 1

“(‘Enemies’ is)a big step forward for Miss June and a determined signal of intent ahead of their debut” with front person Annabel Liddell “in prime form, destabilising not just in her performance but her lyrics.” Line Of Best Fit

“New Zealand punks offer up 30 minutes of tightly coiled rage… (Annabel Liddell is) ferocious… like the demented love child of Thurston Moore and Kathleen Hanna.” Uncut

“If you enjoy the grungy yet gnarly sweetness of Wolf Alice, and also fancy a side of Sonic Youth (attacked with a chainsaw, in a good way), you’ll love this.” Classic Rock Magazine
