Kiwi Rock Soundcheck 28/03/2019

Hot on the heels of a triumphant performance to a capacity crowd at Homegrown, rockers Villainy have just announced a nationwide tour, which will coincide with the release of their highly-anticipated third album, RAISED IN THE DARK.

Villainy will play the Powerstation in Auckland on Saturday, July 27.

Today’s announcement follows the release of Villainy’s new single ‘Dreams’ - an uplifting slacker anthem, wrapped around the generational catch-cry “No-one gives a f*** about your dreams’ the track is a bluntly direct anthem to inspire and provoke.

A shift into new territory, ‘Dreams’ gives fans a taste of what’s to come on the band’s third full-length album, RAISED IN THE DARK – released on July 12.

"We went all in on this record and over 12 months wrote literally 107 songs before picking the ones that made the grade. Beneath all the smashing, screaming and noise there is a real honesty and vulnerability to this album which we're really proud of." says frontman Neill Fraser.
