Dead Favours have kicked things off to a flying start since forming in early 2016.
After debuting at #1 on the iTunes Rock chart, their first single ‘Dig’ has gone on to spend an impressive 24 weeks in the radio charts, peaking at #1 for kiwi bands and #8 for all rock music on air. With great reception from the public, Dig debuted on The Rock 1500 countdown at #715.
Shortly after releasing ‘Dig’ the band hit the road with a highly successful five date tour of New Zealand presented by The Rock FM alongside Decades, Skinny Hobos and Bakers Eddy.
Dead Favours have just released their follow up single ‘High Flying’, again reaching #1 on the iTunes Rock chart. High Flying was immediately picked up by both Radio Hauraki and The Rock FM, a crossover the band has always been aiming for. High Flying was also picked up by Spotify and placed in several official Spotify playlists. The band have just shot the video for High Flying, their second video funded by NZ on Air.
Both releases were produced and recorded by Tom Larkin at The Studios in The City, Melbourne, Dead Favours will return to the studio to record their debut full-length album.
The band comes from a rich history of New Zealand music with members originating from bands including Grammy nominees Steriogram as well as Fire at Will, Bloodnut, Eqwanox and The Wreckage
