ALIEN WEAPONRY Drops Māori Language Single „Hatupatu“

„The story of ‚Hatupatu‘ is one Lewis and I grew up with – our father was the first person to tell us as children,“ said drummer Henry de Jong. „Having a family connection with it only made creating a song more intriguing for us. Traditionally, Māori legends were passed down through families by re-telling them, not by having them written down in books. It only makes sense for us to be re-telling this story as our tūpuna (ancestors) did for generations. We cannot wait to share with the rest of the world.“

Alien Weaponry just released their new album Tangeroa, which is available here. The band also has a handful of tour dates coming up with Gojira and Knocked Loose, as well as some solo dates. Check ‚em out below.
