Young rock band Eqwanox will be at the Yot Club on Saturday 10 July. Formed in Te Awamutu in 2004 while still at high school Eqwanox released their debut album All Roads Lead from Here back in April.
The album’s leading single ‘21st Story’ is an epic party sing-a-long with huge guitars and an even bigger chorus. It was made available for free online download on Purevolume.com and hit the radio airwaves in early 2010.
Eqwanox have performed on some of New Zealand’s largest stages, playing with a number of their music idols including Seether, Billy Corgan (Smashing Pumpkins) and most recently, with NZ Rock Icons Dragon. Eqwanox have also cut their teeth playing with other renowned local bands such as The Bleeders, Midnight Youth, Autozamm and Luger Boa. The band has been an annual Smokefree Rockquest Guest Band since 2006, made the National Final of the World Battle Of The Bands competition, placed 1st in the Axces Bar Rattle the Room competition, made the finals of KFC’s NZ Music Month ‘Sounds From Your Hometown’ competition and performed live for JUICE TV’s The JD Set.
The 2nd single from the album titled ‘Growing Up’ has just hit the radio waves and is also available for free download on purevolume.com.
“The band strings together tight gripping melodies and strong vocals/backing vocals and produced one outrageously great album” â€¨— Muzic.net.nz
