Following up their 2022 debut EP, Wanaka rock four-piece Powder Chutes release their latest single ‘Moths To The Flame’ on May 5th with a simultaneous video release, shot and directed by Joe Murdie on location in Wanaka.
The single is a mature slab of rock of which Studio Sublime’s Tom Harvard says:
“These boys draw inspiration from a plethora of heavy genres, from decades old and new, to deliver a riff-laden sonic assault. ‘Moths To The Flame’... this should be called ‘Behemoths To The Flame’ it’s so huge!"
Powder Chutes are currently on a roll, having just opened for ZZ Top, Pat Benatar & Neil Giraldo, Stone Temple Pilots and The Angels in front of 16,000 people at the 2023 Gibbston Summer Concert. They also headlined the Friday Night Live stage at 2023 Burning Horse Festival, supported The Feelers on their Communicate 21st Anniversary Tour, and played with rock titans Pull Down The Sun at their recent Christchurch show.
Some upcoming gigs include two shows with East York (currently the support for Devilskin on their national tour), and Powder Chutes’ first Dunedin show with Mads Harrop in May.
Powder Chutes continue to furiously write new songs, and plan to be back in the studio soon, with the aim to have an album under their belt before the year’s end.
