Hot on the heels of a triumphant performance to a capacity crowd at Homegrown, rockers Villainy have just announced a nationwide tour, which will coincide with the release of their highly-anticipated third album, RAISED IN THE DARK.

Today’s announcement follows the release of Villainy’s new single ‘Dreams’ -  an uplifting slacker anthem, wrapped around the generational catch-cry “No-one gives a f*** about your dreams’ the track is a bluntly direct anthem to inspire and provoke.

A shift into new territory, ‘Dreams’ gives fans a taste of what’s to come on the band’s third full-length album, RAISED IN THE DARK – released on July 12.

"We went all in on this record and over 12 months wrote literally 107 songs before picking the ones that made the grade. Beneath all the smashing, screaming and noise there is a real honesty and vulnerability to this album which we're really proud of." says frontman Neill Fraser.

Full of passion and pace, it also captures the frenetic high-energy of Villainy’s renowned live performances, as witnessed at Homegrown in Wellington. Playing to an overcapacity crowd at Homegrown’s new outdoor stage just as the sun went down, saw the band hold the audience in the palm of their hands with unison jumps, multiple singalongs and an inflatable boat harbouring Fraser surfing across a sea of hands.
 
"We were really humbled that so many people knew the songs word for word, it was a privilege playing to such an engaged and connected crowd,” says Fraser. Since arriving in 2011 with game-changing single ‘Alligator Skin’, Villainy (James Dylan, Neill Fraser, Dave Johnston and Thom Watts) have been redefining what’s possible with rock in New Zealand. Their first two albums debuted at #1 and won NZ Music Awards for Best Rock AlbumVillainy have also appeared at countless festivals as well as being hand-picked to open for AC/DC during their New Zealand stadium tour, most recently toured with iconic Kiwi rock stars, Shihad, and opened for the legendary Incubus on their New Zealand tour.  Now, with RAISED IN THE DARK promising to be Villainy’s most ambitious and adventurous release yet, this is your chance to see one of New Zealand’s best rock bands live at the peak of their powers!

Villainy want to look after fans by giving the chance to get a specially priced earlybird ticket.
