Tiny Ruins - Ceremony Album Release Tour

To celebrate the incoming release of their fourth album, Ceremony, Tiny Ruins will embark on an eight-date headline tour around Aotearoa this Autumn. Out April 28th, Ceremonyfeatures the singles ‘The Crab / Waterbaby’ & 'Dorothy Bay’ and is the soaring follow-up to 2019's celebrated Olympic Girls - a finalist for the Taite Music Prize.


Traversing influences that cross genre and era, the artistry of Hollie Fullbrook and her band spans delicate folk, lustrous dream pop and ebullient psychedelia. Building on the sparse arrangements and a novelist's eye for detail cultivated over the past several years, the group's greatly anticipated fourth album is out on Ba Da Bing Records, Marathon Artists and Courtney Barnett's label Milk! Records. If Olympic Girls was an album suffused with existential emptiness, portraits often sketched from afar or in empty buildings, Ceremony zooms right in, unafraid of intimacy and connection. Now over a decade in, Hollie Fullbrook's evolution as Tiny Ruins has reached an apex of power, as she's become a deft bandleader of incredible musicians.


“Fullbrook’s voice is silvery, with a controlled grain, the texture imparting a sense of trust as she guides us through muddied trails of melancholy.” - Pitchfork


“[Tiny Ruins’] orchestrated folk can feel timeless and inconspicuous at once, content to lie unnoticed in an understated grandeur all its own.” - NPR Music
