The Outsiders have grown together as a band on the highways and cramped tour vans of Europe/UK, Australia and New Zealand. Their debut album 'The Words Will Write Themselves' is the highly anticipated testament to their first year and a half as a band.
The album was recorded in studios across Wellington and mixed and mastered by powerhouse producer/engineer Andrew Buckton (Sommerset/The D4/Midnight Youth). 'The Words Will Write Themselves' tells the story of losing everything and finding it again; recapturing youth while looking for redemption. The Outsiders have a wealth of experience to draw on, from playing sold out shows in places such as Amsterdam, Berlin, London and Melbourne, to getting lost in the countryside in Belgium, and eating banquets in squats in Germany.
The Outsiders play Punk/Alternative Rock with pop hooks similar to bands such as Husker Du, The Replacements and The Ramones. Three vocalists and an anything-goes live act sets this band apart from many current acts and harks back to the heyday of the early 90's when music and passion took precedent over fashion.
Within their first year together as a band The Outsiders toured Europe, The UK, Australia and New Zealand extensively, all on the back of their highly acclaimed debut EP, which was released 2009. In that time, they also performed with International heavyweights such as Propagandhi, Lagwagon and The Parlotones. The release of their debut album will again involve extensive national touring and another venture overseas where The Outsiders will take their gritty Alternative Punk/Rock to the world.
