Long Beach based trio half•alive announce their return to New Zealand with a show in October! Aptly named after their recently released sophomore album, 'Conditions Of A Punk’, the tour will commence in New Zealand and then journey through Melbourne's Max Watts, Brisbane's The Triffid, and Sydney's Metro Theatre.
The music of half•alive breathes, evolves, grows, and changes alongside the lives of the Long Beach trio - Josh Taylor [vocals], Brett Kramer [drums], and J Tyler Johnson [bass]. half•alive officially came to life on the 2017 3 EP, which sparked a palpable buzz on the strength of “The Fall” and “Aawake At Night”. Their breakout single, "still feel.," was RIAA certified Gold, reached over 276 million worldwide streams and placed Top 10 on Alt Radio. Accompanied by a visually captivating video, "still feel." rapidly surpassed the 10 million views milestone within just two months.
In 2020, half•alive released their EP in Florescence, an audio and visual project that included orchestral arrangements of four tracks off their critically acclaimed debut album Now, Not Yet as well as videos for three of the four songs to accompany them. Last year, the band shared their EP Give Me Your Shoulders, Pt.1 featuring “Move Me” which was most added at Alt Radio around its launch and “What’s Wrong” which has garnered over 23.8 million streams worldwide. The band also performed “What’s Wrong” on Jimmy Kimmel Live!. The band recently released their sophomore album Conditions Of A Punk featuring “Did I Make You Up?” which reached Top 10 at Alt Radio and embarked on their UK, Europe and North America Conditions Of A Punk headline tour.
After their successful debut headline tour in 2019, which featured two sold-out shows at The Fonda Theatre in LA, half•alive is now set to make a highly anticipated return to Australia and New Zealand in October and November this year.
