Supermodel & Sleeping Dogs pre-European tour   30 May 2012

Wellington musicians Supermodel are once again, teaming up with Christchurch rockers Sleeping Dogs in a main centre NZ tour this June and July - before they set off on their World Tour which starts in Europe this September. The tour will showcase brand new material from both bands and all three shows will be filmed for a Live DVD release.

Pop-rock quartet Supermodel released their highly anticipated UK-produced debut album To The Mountains last year with the NZ Herald calling it a“mover and shaker of a release”. The album topped the iTunes charts (rock category) on the first day of release, entered the IMNZ charts at number 4, and made The Official RIANZ Top 40 Album Chart.

Supermodel ‘s music features tight vocal harmonies that meld perfectly with concise and catchy rock arrangements and beautiful sing-along choruses influenced by the likes of The Beatles, Queen, Muse and The Strokes. They are a brilliant live act that have toured extensively and performed shows such as Rhythm 'n Vines, Homegrown and the historic 100 Club in London.

Sleeping Dogs have just completed their epic second album which was recorded at York St Studio in Auckland and mixed at Modern World Studios in the UK by respected producer Greg Haver with mixing guru Clint Murphy - the same crew responsible for the group’s huge classic rock debut album,Myth Reducer.

Sleeping Dogs is the creation of Thomas Reid; a mad, classically trained pianist and self-confessed Bowie addict. Their songs have been described as“unavoidable, deep and unapologetic”, “extravagant, big, epic and over-the-top” They are a must see for fans of epic rock music.


Catch Supermodel with Sleeping Dogs in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch this June/July and see them before the rest of the world!

Friday 22 June – Dux De Lux, CHRISTCHURCH
