The Shuggah Doom Tour coincides with the announcement of a new single Shuggah Doom set for release Thursday Jan 31st, with an accompanying music video from NZ alterna-video guru director, Jake Munro (Avantdale Bowling Club, Marlin's Dreaming, Yukon Era).

Soaked Oats have just stepped off the plane returning from a successful US tour where they travelled in excess of 10,000 miles in a 1980s RV, called "The Driftwood", to play 20 shows to the far reaches of the land of Milk & Honey. With no time to rest on the laurels and with the sweet taste of camper-van touring fresh to hand, the boys have picked up their NZ version of the Driftwood although yet to be named. This summer tour has already taken in Gizzy's Rhythm and Vines, Coromandel, Mount Maunganui and Taupo.

With a slew of talent lined up to support at each of the NZ shows (see below) and plenty of dates to come - this is your chance to soak up the sonic fruits of their labour.
