New Zealand singer and songwriter, Avalanche City, will release his highly-anticipated third album, My Babylon on February 22.
To mark the milestone, Avalanche City (aka Dave Baxter) is taking to the road on a four-date New Zealand tour, playing in small and intimate venues - Folk in Tauranga (all ages) on Saturday, March 2; Anthology Lounge in Auckland on Friday, March 8; Caroline in Wellington on Saturday, March 9 and Blue Smoke in Christchurch on Thursday, March 14.
Avalanche City emerged in 2011 with his breakout hit song ‘Love, Love, Love’. It established Baxter as one of the country’s most talented songwriters - winning the prestigious Silver Scroll in 2011 - and preceded the release of his debut full-length album Our New Life Above the Ground.
Avalanche City returned in 2015 with We Are for The Wild Places - another critically acclaimed album, which peaked at #3 on the NZ album charts and #1 on iTunes. The record’s lead single ‘Inside Out’ was certified Platinum in New Zealand achieving #1 spot on the NZ single charts, and #1 position at radio in NZ for five consecutive weeks. The single also won Best Music Video at the 2016 NZ Music Awards.
The success of the first two records saw Avalanche City tour the world. Now he’s taking his new album My Babylon back to where it all began - the towns and cities of New Zealand.
Due to the intimate nature of the venue, tickets are extremely limited and fans are urged to purchase early to avoid missing out.
