My main man Ed Muzik and his band The Burning Sensations to about to hit the jungle with their latest tour with a fresh bunch of tunes. If they’re playing a town near you be sure to check them out! Here’s the press stuff:
Ed Muzik and his band The Burning Sensations will be packing their stomachs when they head out on their “Appetite for Destruction” tour this November, with four shows across both islands – including one show in a real-life fish and chip shop. The tour starts in quake-stricken Canterbury, with a show at the now thankfully re-opened Wunderbar in Lyttelton. The show is on Thursday the 11th, which is the night before Canterbury Anniversary day – so people have no excuse not to come out and party. After that, the band will load up on grease at Funk n Fish Chips, before jumping across the strait for a show at Wellington’s Mighty Mighty. The tour finishes off with the band’s appearance at the City Showcase festival in Napier.
Ed explains the theme of the tour; “The last time we went on tour, we were always thinking about what we’d be eating that night. We had all sorts of culinary delicacies – Thai, Mexican, burgers, pancakes, mulled wine, even hangi pies on the ferry. Unfortunately, now the band wont come on tour unless I promise top-shelf catering.” The tour will feature a show in central Christchurch chippery, Funk n Fish n Chips. Ed explains “They’re known to have DJ’s and be open late at the weekend. We thought it would be great if we got a band in there, especially as they’ve been suffering post-quake, with all the road closures, and now the councils ridiculous tram extension vanity project. Plus, we’ll get paid in deep-fried goods, which is a win-win really.” Oh, and the name of the tour also allowed the band to rip-off the cover of Guns n Roses seminal 1988 album Appetite for Destruction, which may have had more than a small thing to do with it.
The tour coincides with the release of some new songs, including new single “A Song Falls In The Woods”. The tracks are freely available on the Ed Muzik website and bandcamp, and will hopefully be on the upcoming Ed Muzik long-player, which will be coming out “er, soon, hopefully” according to Ed.
