SHAPESHIFTER will be bringing their future-shocked live show back to Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne and Perth throughout August.
The towering success of Christchurch-formed SHAPESHIFTER can’t be denied. Across their career they have made genre-defining appearances at Glastonbury, The Big Chill, Big Day Out and Parklife, plus sold-out performances across Europe. DELTA is the fifth studio album from SHAPESHIFTER, following the previous albums that have all achieved platinum status in New Zealand.
Recorded in Berlin, Woodhill and Wellington and incorporating elements of the 'heavy soul' tempered with drum n bass, jazz and funk that fans have become accustomed to, DELTA sees SHAPESHIFTER stretch their palette even further, adding club tempo feels and other more slanted elements into the mix, while at the same time pushing the man/machine interface that drives their music to new heights. While there is possibly no such thing as a 'typical' SHAPESHIFTER album, all of their output shares a common thread - a willingness to experiment above and beyond genre confines.
This August sees the band undertake a national tour and fans know to expect the dancefloor anthems that have given SHAPESHIFTER their justifiably fearsome live reputation both at home and around the world.
