FLORENCE + THE MACHINE ANNOUNCE NEW ZEALAND SHOW NEXT JANUARY
- NEW ALBUM HIGH AS HOPE RELEASED FRIDAY JUNE 29 -
“Florence’s infectious enthusiasm and pure abandon on being on stage in front of 6000 people who adore her makes her concert so much more than a rendition of her recording. It’s communal ecstasy” -- News.com.au
“It was a show that started at a million miles an hour and never really slowed down” -- Sydney Morning Herald
“Mesmerising doesn’t begin to cut it” -- MusicFeeds
“It was as a spiritual experience to behold” – The AU Review
Florence + The Machine will return to New Zealand next January.
Florence Welch and her band return to unleash their mesmerising live show on New Zealand audiences. “Florence is not one to be tame, nor is her band one to shy away from eccentric production and excessive grandeur”, the Sydney Morning Herald announced of their most recent Australian shows, while The Music declared, “her presence on stage was nothing short of captivating and if her flowing red hair and bare feet didn't give her the persona of a goddess, her angelic voice did”.
Released globally earlier this week, Florence + The Machine’s latest offering, ‘Big God’, is a raw and enchanting affair, and is the third single to be taken from their highly-anticipated fourth album, High As Hope, out next Friday June 29th. As Paste Magazine notes, “if Welch’s ethereal vocals made her sound like a goddess on previous tracks, she’s a distinctly grounded one on ‘Big God’ – ‘Big God’ is sparser, but gorgeously so.” Earlier this year, Florence + The Machine performed their brooding second single ‘Hunger’ on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
High As Hope is as intimate as it is epic, venturing into new sonic territory whilst reaching back to Florence’s roots. The new album will feature collaborations from the likes of Kamasi Washington, Sampha, Tobias Jesso Jr, Kelsey Lu and Jamie xx, and as Florence describes it, “is a pure expression of who I am now, as an artist, and an honest one.”
The UK artist has dazzled fans and critics alike across three celebrated studio albums; Lungs (2009), Ceremonials (2011) and How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful (2015), which produced a slew of worldwide hits including, ‘You’ve Got The Love’, ‘Dog Days Are Over’, ‘Shake It Out’ and ‘Spectrum (Say My Name)’ among many others.
Don’t miss out when Florence + The Machine return in January to play fan favourites and debut songs from High As Hope in New Zealand for the very first time.
