After a five year hiatus, New Zealand band Tommy And The Fallen Horses have announced their sophomore album, Openhearts alongside two supporting shows in Auckland and Wellington.
Described as an Alt-Country, Indie-Pop and Folk-Rock group, Tommy And The Fallen Horses is fronted by singer-songwriter Tommy Benefield with Openhearts due to be released on September 13.
With the band’s first album Isolation is the New Party receiving rave reviews and various songs aired on the radio and featured in Outrageous Fortune and Shortland Street, Openhearts represents a personal journey for Benefield “It is unquestionably the most important album of my life and most certainly the best. It is the most significant achievement of my life, second only to kicking drugs, raising two beautiful gifted children and creating the love I have with my wife Nicola.”
“I am incredibly grateful to have made it, honoured to have been so overwhelmingly supported by those who made it with me, and humbled to have been so lucky as to get these songs, so significant to me, so beautifully realised to share with the world. Whatever may come, this album makes me truly proud,” he adds.
With 13 new tracks on Openhearts which was produced by Geoff Maddock (behind Goldenhorse’s Riverhead album) Benefield is looking forward to performing live. “We’re really stoked to be doing two gigs around the album’s release. It’s been ages since we took to the stage, but we’re looking forward to bringing the new tracks – and some from the first album – to Kiwis.”
