Katchafire, one of the hardest working and most respected collectives to come out of New Zealand, have evolved into a formidable force on the international music scene.
Off the back of the release of their platinum selling, fourth studio album On The Road Again, a nonstop 2012 has seen the legendary Aotearoa roots-rockers smash headline tours of the US and Brazil while over in the UK the band have been nominated for Best International Band at the British Reggae Music Awards.
Katchafire will blaze into Australia with their iconic reggae sound, lighting the way out of the winter chill with a national tour this August/September.
The eight-piece band, that hosts five extraordinary singer songwriters, deliver one of the most authentic reggae shows around today. Their world famous, distinctly NZ sound, is backed by a blistering live show packed with hits. With Breathtaking vocal harmonies and a magnetic on stage presence the momentum just continues to build.
On The Road Again is in stores now through Lion House Records and Katchafire will be touring nationally - playing on September 21 at The Forum in Melbourne tickets through www.katchafire.co.nz
