A Freddy’s European tour is an annual event and the announcement of an impending album release raises the stakes for the band and fans.
The fiercely independent seven piece hailing from Aotearoa New Zealand has toured Europe annually since touching base in London in 2002. Album releases however are much more special slow burn events.
Fat Freddy’s Drop, considered one of the world’s finest live draws, have built a long term love affair with Europe. Freddys love Europe – the food, culture, whanau (family) and especially the European audiences.
Now Freddys are preparing for an Album Release Tour and in usual Freddy’s style, there’s no album name or release date to share. Just the band’s promise to deliver a new studio album to the fans in time for the tour kicking off in November 2019.
Freddys have given hints of new musical directions during sold out 2018 shows at Zitadelle, Berlin, O2 Academy Brixton, AFAS Amsterdam, Zenith Paris. ‘Special Edition’, ‘Trickle Down’, ‘Kamo Kamo’ and ‘114’ are all new songs that have been road tested live as Freddys shape and refine them for recording in their BAYS studio in hometown Wellington.
For the Europe Album Release Tour, the band are stepping up the scale of their high octane live performance to include arena venues in Amsterdam, Paris, London and Berlin. Freddys will be making rare return visits to Barcelona, Madrid, Lisbon and Warsaw, and there’s a debut show in Prague in the mix.
