THIS SHOW IS STRICTLY 18+

Teenage thrash metal band Alien Weaponry shock and surprise audiences on a number of levels. Their songwriting is complex, developed and highly political. Their live performance energy is startling, with just two fifteen year olds commanding the front of stage as effectively as four and five piece bands three times their age. But perhaps most surprising of all, given their blonde flailing locks and Viking appearance, many of their songs are in New Zealand’s native language, Te Reo Māori.

The band’s English material is equally controversial, with songs like ‘Hypocrite,’ ‘Rage,’ ‘PC Bro’,’ and ‘The Cult of Sanitised Warfare’ calling out everyone from teachers and friends at school to the media for variously glorifying and destroying the lives of television and sports stars.
“We listened to all sorts of music when we were younger,” says lead singer and guitarist Lewis de Jong, “but we were drawn to thrash metal because it’s quite complex music, and it is a great vehicle for expressing real stories and emotions.”
