The idiosyncratic indie-rock band returns to Wellington for one show.

Fun fact: Did you know English indie-rockers alt-J are named after the delta symbol that appears when pressing 'alt' and 'J' on a keyboard?

Anyway, after successfully touring Australia in 2013 and making quite the impression at New Zealand's Laneway Festival, the unique idiosyncratic British band return to New Zealand shores to showcase their highly-anticipated third album RELAXER, which was released June 2 (cue screaming).

Three years of worldwide touring has built alt-J's reputation as an incredible live act. They have headlined festivals, created award-winning albums and sold out arenas across the globe. The eccentric group has announced shows for both Auckland and Wellington — as well as Australian dates for Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane.

Alt-J are back to share their sweet harmonic symphonies and strong acapella harmonies this December and we can't wait. It's time to put your hands together and form that well known triangle symbol. Support from Clap Clap Riot.
