Katchafire

Katchafire return to Australia for their Rolling Hills and Island Vibe festival shows next month.

Fellow New Zealanders Masaya will also be bringing their soothing tunes on the national tour with their mash of Indie/Groove/Soul/Roots.

Katchafire will be celebrating with a new single Always With You out on November 18.

Katchafire have been spending time in Aotearoa studios recording new music and are looking forward to their first overseas shows since the pandemic began in March 2020 when they were in Hawaii; these will be their first Australian gigs since 2019, breaking a longstanding traditional of yearly tours across the ditch.

The band headed to Europe in July 2022 and North America in September. Katchafire have long been prolific international tourers and 2021 was the first year the band did not travel overseas since 2006.

Not resting on their laurels while international borders were closed, the Katchafire released two new singles, Circle Back and Whaingaroa, as well as releasing their 100 single in Te Reo (Māori language) as part of the Waiata / Anthems documentary series.

You can catch them on Thursday at The Northern from 7pm with Masaya, Kimmy and Tjaka.

Tickets can be found at: Oztix.com.
