SHAPESHIFTER Hitting Metro City this Friday


Late last year Shapeshifter dropped their sixth studio album Stars, and they are bringing their infamous live show around Australia, hitting Metro City this Friday.

Melding a progressive bass music approach with their definitive core elements – hypnotic electronic textures, barrelling backbeats and the driving vocals of P Digsss – Stars pushes their stadium-sized sound to new heights. Recorded between their New Brighton and Auckland studios, Shapeshifter spent six months writing tunes and ideas before setting down the album at Auckland’s Roundhead Studios with The UpbeatsDylan Jones and Jeremy Glenn.

That interstellar result includes a track listing of 11 expertly crafted tunes – tracks which travel between the summer-time anthem of lead single Stars and the cosmic crafting of Her, to the driving dance anthem Eternal and darker corners of Ex Machina.

It’s a cohesive collection which blends their signature heavy soul and explosive drum ‘n bass sound, all the while exploring space-sized synths and electric, energetic, genre-defying avenues.

Their first album since the platinum selling Delta in 2013 – a release that also bore platinum single In ColourStars marks the welcome return of one of New Zealand’s finest.

Australian audiences are set to be amongst the first in the world to hear the stadium-sized production of the new album Stars and see Shapeshifter’s globally renowned live show on their national tour across March and April 2017

Shapeshifter play Metro City this Friday from 8pm. Tickets On Sale Now from &
