New Zealand outfit The D4 are set to play their first Australian show in 20 years at Melbourne’s Tote Hotel on Thursday, 30th March. They won’t be going it alone: local garage act Grindhouse, The Stripp, and Fly! will be joining them as supports.
The show is in celebration of their debut album 6TWENTY, which turned the grand old age of 21 in October 2022. The D4 issued a re-release of the record and have been circling their home country of Aotearoa ever since.
The D4: ‘Sake Bomb’
Formed in 1998 by Dion Lunadon and Jimmy Christmas, the band would wind up on the roster of New Zealand’s most famous independent record label, Flying Nun. Their debut EP dropped in 1999, and they would go on to release just two studio albums: 6TWENTY in 2001 and Out Of My Head in 2005.
The band split in 2006, but they reformed in 2018 to bid farewell to one of their favourite local venues, the Kings Arm Tavern in Auckland, and to play a set at the short-lived Auckland City Limits festival. The band were last in Austraila for the 2003 edition of the Big Day Out.
