On the floor: Prayer takes wing

Dunedin sonic-rock three-piece Idiot Prayer depart their beloved South Island haunt for the first time in April to showcase their debut five-track EP.

Thwarted by the elements from playing outside Dunedin in 2010, Idiot Prayer have been keen to display their wares further afield ever since.

They have already garnered some impressive media attention, with Rip It Up's Martyn Pepperell saying: "As abrasively toned as the bone-cutting chill of midwinter Dunedin, South Island trio Idiot Prayer fashion an elastically pictorial mixture of conventionally structured post-rock and free-form improv noise arrangements".

The tour will be in support of Idiot Prayer's debut five-track EP Falconer, available on CD and download from Muzai Records and on vinyl from Monkey Killer Records. It will be available at the shows. The song 100 Ducks is the second single to be released from the EP.

The band's tour begins on March 30 at Refuel, with John White and Thundercub.

The trio follows that with a show at Whammy Bar, in Auckland on April Fool's Day, with God Bows to Math and The Knew Yeah.

They then head to the capital to perform at Happy with God Bows to Math and Kittentank.
