New Zealand hard-out metal outfit Alien Weaponry, are touring Australia on their Tūmatauenga Australian Tour in March 2019 – and today they are rolling out their Australian support acts!

The tour acts as sideshows to their appearances at Download Festivals Melbourne & Sydney on March 9 and 11, respectively. Adding to that, they have also just announced that they will be supporting Slayer and Anthrax in Germany in August 2019 on Slayer’s final tour!

Both Brisbane’s show at The Zoo on March 6 and Canberra’s show at The Basement on March 13 will see COPIA and Take My Soul in support, Adelaide’s Enigma Bar on March 14 will feature COPIA and Hidden Intent and March 15’s Perth show is TBC and still on the hunt for supports!

The three-piece thrash metal band who sing in their native language, Te Reo Māori, from Waipu, New Zealand, formed in 2010 by brothers Lewis and Henry de Jong. The band consists of Lewis de Jong (guitar and vocals), Henry de Jong (drums), and Ethan Trembath (bass guitar). Most noted for their fusion of Te Reo Māori (the native language of New Zealand) with thrash metal, they deliver emotionally and politically charged stories of conflict and grief with a warrior-like attitude.

In addition to that, RNZ Music is set to release a new 10-part web series that follows Alien Weaponry on their 2018 European tour. Rū Ana Te Whenua: Alien Weaponry Shake Europe goes live on the RNZ website on Monday, 18 February,

In 2018, the three teenaged members of Alien Weaponry achieved a lifelong dream: performing at the world’s biggest metal music festival, Germany’s Wacken Open Air. Rū Ana Te Whenua: Alien Weaponry Shake Europe follows their journey.
