mr sterile Assembly is a noisy bass and drum duo – part punk, part noise, math rock, free-form squall; they are not easy to box, and are quite happy about that.
Known as much for their word-smithing as for their fierce delivery – they have been described as “oppressive and delightful both at the same time.” Organ Magazine, UK.
The duo are also known for their tours, taking uncompromising music to venues dotted around the planet.
“A jolt of pure creative spirit married to social commentary, and damn good fun!” NZ Musician.
“Catch them if you can. There’s nothing else like it.” Nick Bollinger
TOOMS are also a noisy bass and drum duo who recently supported post-punk ranters Sleaford Mods at their only NZ show in February. Coming fresh of a Covid cancelled USA tour, and from making a selection of choice covers during lockdown, TOOMS are always a joyous treat!

After selling out Auckland’s Powerstation in just six days, Auckland’s indie faves The Beths announce a nationwide tour in support of their new record Jump Rope Gazers, out next Friday 10 July on Carpark Records. The tour will see The Beths criss-cross New Zealand for 12 dates from 27 August, followed by a very special show on the iconic Auckland Town Hall stage on Friday 6 November.
Straight from the heart of Auckland’s music scene, The Beths have gathered an ever increasing fan base in New Zealand and around the world. Their debut album Future Me Hates Me, was nominated for the 2019 Taite Music Prize, saw the band win Best Alternative Act and Best Group at the 2019 Vodafone New Zealand Music Awards and garnered acclaim from the likes of Rolling Stone and NME. With the imminent release of Jump Rope Gazers, The Beths have been connecting with their global fan base via their popular “Live from House” livestreams, but it’s the New Zealand fans that get the first chance to hear the new album live and The Beths can’t wait to get on the road to visit cities they’ve played before and some brand new towns.”
