New Zealand rock band 'Ekko Park' return to Belfast for the first time since 2014, joining local legends The Crossfire Hurricanes & Alpha Twin on Friday 29th Sept at The Belfast Barge.
8pm — £12 on the door and its 'Bring your own beer & wine'
Since the release of their debut album 'Tomorrow Tomorrow Today' in 2013 and the nomination for Best Rock Album at the 2014 New Zealand Music Awards, the band has had a whirlwind 36 months. With an honest, unique and energetic brand of rock 'n’ roll, Ekko Park released their highly anticipated, second album 'Know Hope' in 2015, going straight in to the Official NZ Album Chart at #13 and was the #5 Kiwi album.
The «Know Hope» singles are causing a massive stir in Europe. 'Probable Cause' going to #1 & 'Validation' going to #3 on the Official Italian Rock Radio Airplay Chart, whilst enjoying exposure to over 100 million listeners. And… they continue to receive substantial support from 200+ radio stations.
With the release of their brand new single 'Going Uptown' in 2017, the band will embark on their first Italian Tour with a warm up show in singer Joe's hometown of Belfast, N Ireland.
THE CROSSFIRE HURRICANES
Belfast four piece The Crossfire Hurricanes are driving their own tanked-up style of blues-infused Indie Rock&Roll, and they rarely take it out of fifth gear. Their recipe is a cocktail of cool confidence mixed with creative musical agility, and these ingredients manifest themselves in their music; a repertoire of punchy riffs dripping in psychedelic delay effects, and ignited with catchy choruses. This has resulted in plays on BBC Radio, festival bookings including support for The Kooks and The Coronas, and London gigs including the famous Indie venue ‘The Dublin Castle’ in Camden; where Blur, Amy Winehouse, and The Arctic Monkeys honed their craft. Whether playing in sweaty clubs or festival tents The Crossfire Hurricanes have gained a reputation as a fearsome live act with a determination for success. So if you walk past a music venue and you hear raw attitude amplified in a storm of riffs, drum rolls, and punchy vocals… then you know The Crossfire Hurricanes are in town… and they’ll charm you like a new belief.
