ALIEN WEAPONRY to Make North American Debut Opening For Ministry!


October 17, 2018 — Three teenagers, known as ALIEN WEAPONRY, from a tiny town in the small South Pacific nation of New Zealand have managed to capture the imaginations of people all over the world with their unique thrash metal sound and commanding live performances. 

Proclaimed by Noisey as a band “Well on their way to world domination,” ALIEN WEAPONRY will be invading North American shores for the first time ever, supporting industrial legends Ministry.  The tour starts November 21st in San Francisco, CA and runs through December 21st in Los Angeles, CA.  A complete list of dates can be found below.

Sirius XM Liquid Metal’s Jose Mangin cannot wait until they make their North American debut, “ALIEN WEAPONRY is one of the most remarkable bands on our station right now! Fans continue to be turned on to their music through SiriusXM, and we love helping fans discover new killer music!  This band is seriously one of our favorites and will be part of our “Devil’s Dozen” of the year for sure! We’re f’in stoked that they’re doing their first American tour, and we can’t wait to see them live!”

Watch a video message from the band about the upcoming tour HERE.

Earlier this year, ALIEN WEAPONRY released their blistering debut album ‘Tu’on the world via Napalm Records, short for ‘Tumatauenga,’ the Māori god of war, ‘Tu’ also means to stand strong and proud, and, most importantly, to stand for something. The notion is reflected in the album artwork, which includes the traditional moko kanohi (facial tattoos) of the Māori warrior.

The response for ‘Tu’ has been nothing short of astounding with outlets like Loudwiresinging their praises, “Like Sepultura in Brazil before them, ALIEN WEAPONRYare working to immortalize New Zealand’s tribal culture through heavy metal.” Revolver Magazine calls the trio, “So badass and so important to heavy-music culture right now.”
