Popstrangers announce new album

Auckland trio Popstrangers have announced their signing to the independent New Zealand record label - Flying Nun.

Their inclusion in the highly respected Flying Nun stable will come as no surprise to those who have followed them through the two eventful years since they played their first live shows.

The band - Joel Flyger, Adam Page, and David Larsen - have been working on their full first length album - set for release in early 2012. The new single "WHAT ELSE COULD THEY DO "is here.

Popstrangers have developed a following for their unmissable live performances, and have supported international acts Peaches (US), Crocodiles (US) and MGMT (US), as well as taking their grunge inspired noise-rock sound to Big Day Out , Rhythm and Vines Festival and have toured New Zealand and Australia. They have recently been nominated for the Critics Choice Award at the 2011 NZ Music Awards.

Next month, POPSTRANGERS travel to New York for numerous shows throughout the USA including CMJ Music Marathon. And return to NZ just in time for the Flying Nun 30th Anniversary celebrations in November.
