Beastwars Tyranny of Distance Album Release Show Wellington heavy rock band Beastwars have announced their long-awaited fifth studio album, Tyranny of Distance, and will celebrate the release with their first Auckland show in 2 and a half years.
2023 also marks the 10th anniversary of their 2nd album Blood Becomes Fire and as a special treat to long time fans this album will be played in full alongside a selection of tracks from their new album.
Tyranny of Distance is also a covers album spanning 40 years of New Zealand music. The Gordons, Superette, Snapper, Marlon Williams, Children’s Hour, Nadia Reid, Julia Deans and 3Ds all have their songs contorted and distorted, riffs extracted and mutated. These are powerful songs in their own right, but Tyranny of Distance gives them fiery new life to become something distinctly “Beastwars”.
