New Zealand band LIKE A STORM have made huge waves in the US scene, labeled “one of the hottest buzz bands out there right now,” by National Rock Review. With a brand new album out through Century Media / Another Century, this year the storm spreads to Europe and the rest of the world.
The band of three brothers moved from Auckland, NZ to North America knowing no one. Renowned for their explosive live show, LIKE A STORM quickly climbed the ranks, having now toured arenas and large clubs all across the US with such heavy-weights as: Alter Bridge, Black Stone Cherry, Steel Panther, Shinedown, HellYeah & more.
Their connection with the crowds every night was instant – Their first album, ‘The End of The Beginning’, debuted in the Billboard Top 200 from nightly tour sales alone.
LIKE A STORM’s brand new single, ‘Love The Way You Hate Me’ has been #1 on the biggest rock station in North America for 5 weeks. Its stateside success makes LIKE A STORM the highest-charting New Zealand rock act in US radio history. The track connected with listeners everywhere. When a new single typically lasts a few weeks at US radio, ‘Love The Way You Hate Me’ blasted for over 9 months! Outlasting singles from much more established acts.
The official video for ‘Love The Way You Hate Me’, which features a zombie mob of actual LIKE A STORM fans, has over 2 million views on Youtube.

The track was inspired when someone at a truck-stop in small-town USA called one of the brothers a “freak.” Produced by the band themselves, it’s one of the first, if not the only, charting single to feature the ancient Aboriginal wood instrument, the Didgeridoo. When combined with crushing guitars and prog drumming, “Didgeridoo Metal” was born.
Their brand new album, ‘Awaken The Fire’ is one of the first releases from Century Media imprint ANOTHER CENTURY, and will be released all across Europe on March 16th, 2015
