The group will be playing their new EP, answering fan questions... and playing Fortnite, a free online game that sees players battle it out to be the last person or team, standing. The game is arguably the biggest online game in the world right now.

According to The NZ Music Commission, SWIDT are avid Fortnite players and plan to 'put on a display of prestige gaming whilst fans are treated to new music'.
