Never miss another 'Alien Weaponry' show
Alien Weaponry are "one of the most exciting young metal bands in the world right now" according to REVOLVER Magazine. And they're not the only ones. Since well before they released their debut album 'T?' in 2018, fans, bloggers, the music industry and the media have raved about their unique blend of metal and their native language, Te Reo M?ori. The New Zealand trio deliver emotionally and politically charged stories of conflict with a war-like attitude.
Named Alien Weaponry after watching the movie District 9, the band has worked hard since their formation. They have opened for Prophets of Rage and played festivals including Wacken Open Air and a packed stage at Bloodstock (the latter their only UK appearance to date!!). Signed to Napalm Records, their video for 'Kai Tangata' has had over 2 million views in just four months!
Don't miss metal's rising stars as they head to Fuel on their first UK headline shows and what we're pretty sure is their debut Welsh performance.
Support from our favourite extreme metallers Sodomized Cadaver and highly rated young thrashers Excursia.
Alien Weaponry is a three-piece thrash metal band from Waipu, New Zealand, formed in 2010 by brothers Lewis and Henry de Jong, who were 8 and 10 years old at the time. The band consists of Lewis de Jong (guitar and vocals), Henry de Jong (drums), and Ethan Trembath (bass guitar).
The band is most noted for its fusion of Te Reo M?ori (the native language of New Zealand) with thrash metal – delivering emotionally and politically charged stories of conflict and grief with a warrior-like attitude. Drummer Henry de Jong says, 'Our musical style and messages have a lot of similarities with haka, which is often brutal, angry and about stories of great courage or loss.'
