Aussie Groove Masters Hobo Magic To Tour NZ In December

Auckland can proudly boast rock duo Skinny Hobos but it takes Australia’s Sunshine Coast to produce Hobo Magic – the riff-tactically trippy heavy rock trio many are calling Australia’s best underground rock act.

Hobo Magic today announced their first international tour, heading over the ditch for a bunch of NZ dates in early December. Given the nod by Christchurch stoner fest, Blazed and Confused, the band will play eight shows including Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch, with support provided by Auckland’s own ginge stoner kings Bloodnut.

With a successful EP (2015’s ‘Leader Deceiver’) already under their belts, Hobo Magic have been firing all year on the back of their debut album ‘The World Today’ receiving plenty of critical acclaim around the globe. The talented fun-loving trio deliver a unique brand of old school-inspired psychedelic rock’n’roll heaviness, bringing fresh jams and monumental riffs.

Hobo Magic drummer Luke Hanson says of their upcoming NZ jaunt.

“New Zealand will be our first international tour and we couldn’t be more stoked! Not only is it an incredibly beautiful country but there are heaps of epic stoner rock bands spawning from the depths of Middle Earth. We’re lucky enough to be sharing the road with NZ’s own ginger riff lords Bloodnut. Let the Fellowship of the Riff begin!”

Main dates for the Hobo Magic ‘The World Today’ 2017 NZ tour (presented by Cartel Presents with supported nationally by Bloodnut) are:

Thu Dec 7 LYTTELTON – Wunderbar
Fri Dec 8 INVERCARGILL  – Southland Musicians Club
Sat Dec 9  CHRISTCHURCH – Blazed And Confused Festival
Wed Dec 13 WELLINGTON – Valhalla
Fri Dec 15 NAPIER – Cabana Bar
Sat Dec 16 RAGLAN – The Yot Club
Sun Dec 17 AUCKLAND – Whammy Bar
