Global Metal Stars ALIEN WEAPONRY Reveal Official Music Video for Tangaroa Album Track “Down The Rabbit Hole”

New Album, Tangaroa, Out Now via Napalm Records

On Tour this Winter Supporting Guns N’ Roses

+ Supporting Gojira in 2023!

New Zealand global metal frontrunners ALIEN WEAPONRY have been touring around the world nonstop since the 2021 release of their acclaimed sophomore album, Tangaroa, out now via Napalm Records! Spreading vital messages of peace, awareness and warning through the power of their culturally-driven music, Tangaroa proves a massive next step for the band – encompassing all of the elements that make ALIEN WEAPONRY heavy metal’s most authentic rising stars.

Following the release of their three previous Tangaroa music videos for “Tangaroa”“Buried Underground”, and “Hatupatu”, today, in anticipation of their winter and early 2023 performance plans supporting both Guns N’ Roses and Gojira, ALIEN WEAPONRY have dropped an official video for none other than their album closer track “Down The Rabbit Hole”. The track extends an important proclamation against bullying through the eyes and experiences of frontman Lewis de Jong.

Lewis de Jong says about “Down The Rabbit Hole”:

“This was an absolute blast to film! ‘Down The Rabbit Hole’ represents the growth I’ve experienced throughout my life and putting to bed demons from the past. The video captures the meaning well – the broken objects representing said demons. It’s the rough times in life that make you who you are, as long as you rise above it.”

As mentioned above, ALIEN WEAPONRY is thrilled to be hitting the road this winter and next spring with some of rock and metal’s biggest icons. In December, the band will support Guns N’ Roses on two shows in their home country of New Zealand, and will pick back up to join Gojira on a tour of the UK and Europe in February 2023.

ALIEN WEAPONRY’s latest album, Tangaroa, coalesces the band’s growing maturation with an undisturbed songwriting process, resulting in their most inspired, honest and informed material yet. Tangaroa is immersed in important historical accounts and cultural heritage of the Māori people – in addition to lyrics written in te reo Māori, many tracks feature traditional instruments, called taonga puoro, providing the tracks their own warrior-like attitude.

Since releasing their acclaimed debut Tū (2018), ALIEN WEAPONRY’s kinetic presence and sound – combining elements of thrash and groove metal with lyrics in the native indigenous language, te reo Māori — has attracted throngs of fans and media supporters across the globe. In addition to amassing millions of cross-platform streams and YouTube views, the band has seen bounds of success at SiriusXM Liquid Metal, was recently hailed the “future of metal” by Metal Hammer, and was voted by Revolver Magazine fans as “one of the bands most likely to break out in 2021”. Furthermore, in the last year, ALIEN WEAPONRY’s touring resume has expanded by supporting the likes of Gojira, Bullet For My Valentine and more, as well as appearing on festivals such as Hellfest, VOA and Resurrection – a list that already included support of some of the biggest names in metal like Slayer and Black Label Society.
