Waipu’s favourite sons Alien Weaponry are hitting the road this November and December for the Level One Tour.

Skip to tour details.

Alien Weaponry live at the Auckland Town Hall as part of Te Wiki O Te Reo Māori 2020

The band have just signed a new management deal with the group that represents metal greats Slayer, and Mastadon, and are armed with new music.

Beginning in Tauranga, the Level One Tour will see Alien Weaponry on their biggest New Zealand tour yet, playing six shows throughout Aotearoa.

The tour ends at Auckland’s Powerstation, the first time the band have headlined the iconic venue. 

This will be the band’s first time on the road with new bass player Tūranga Morgan-Edmonds, a long-time friend of the band and former classmate of drummer Henry de Jong. 

The band have spent 2020 recording their second album which is due for release in 2021.
