Tomorrow People prepare for new tour

By Te Ao Māori News

Sunshine Reggae band, Tomorrow People, kick of their new tour tomorrow, to promote their new album, "Bass and Bassinets" which will be released on Friday.

Following their Gold selling debut album "ONE", the new album includes new recordings of the singles "Again & Again", "No Rush" and new single, "Get It Back".

Band member Avina Kelekolio says their latest album has been a year in the making, and the collection of 12 new studio tracks plus a remix of their single, No Rush, is dedicated to their families.

Kelekolio says, “We asked a lot of them to support us and to let them know, oh look, we won't be home for dinner, we can't make it to this birthday, because we're doing promotion or a gig somewhere else, all for the love of music.”

The tour begins in Invercargill, which is the hometown of one of the band’s newest members, and lead singer Hamo-ki-te-rangi Dell (Ngāti Porou).

When asked about how Dell felt about returning home she said, “I'm really excited, like it's been a year since I've been back, I haven't really seen any of my friends, and a lot of them haven't seen me perform.”

The band will also play at the popular summer music festivals, East Coast Vibes in January and One Love in February of next year.
