Shapeshifter Announce New Live Album and National Tour
Shapeshifter, voted New Zealand's best live act, is back on the road performing the electric and cutting edge set they are known and loved for. To top this off they are releasing their first live album with tracks from last year's epic orchestra tour.
It's been a big 12 months for Shapeshifter. The release of their third album Soulstice has achieved in excess of Platinum sales status. They have toured Australia on two hugely successful tours - the Big Day Out Tour, being handpicked to support Tool to 15,000 in Melbourne and their own solo tour with sold out shows and rave reviews. They were awarded a phenomenal three awards at the New Zealand bnet music awards for Best Live Act, Song of the Year for Bring Change and Album of the Year for Soulstice.
And there is no slowing down this group. They will release their fourth album Shapeshifter Live on 20 August with tracks from last year's Christchurch show with the Christchurch Symphony Orchestra. This was part of the extremely popular sold out orchestra tour in September 2006.
Following this national tour, Shapeshifter will be performing at the Parklife Festival throughout Australia and then heading over to Europe.
Tickets go on sale via Amplifer and other outlets on Monday 23/07.
