Dirty post-punk rock is guaranteed when The Twitch play
at Dux de Lux next month.
"We're the kind of band that makes you want to party," lead
vocalist and bass player Fleur Jack told the Queenstown
"You'll walk away wanting to destroy the town. I don't mean
break things, but you'll want to let loose and party."
Fleur, backing vocalist and guitarist Jesus Raine and backing
vocalist and drummer Josh Crowther, all of Auckland, visit
eight centres in February.
The trio will be playing tracks from their follow-up album,
Time For A Change, which was produced by former D4
frontman Jimmy Christmas and mixed by award-winner Andrew
Buckton (Midnight Youth's album The Brave Don't Run).
The Twitch formed at the Music and Audio Institute of New
Zealand (MAINZ) in 2003, won the national Battle of the Bands
in 2005, was second at the world finals in Hong Kong, and
toured New Zealand three times in 2007.
Fleur, also a presenter on Kiwi FM, said the band is taking a
more professional approach with its music, compared to the
2006 debut album What the F**k is Going On?.
The group's first extensive tour of Australia is being
planned for this year.
"We've grown up . . . we're taking music seriously and want
to be taken seriously as a band."
