Now recording their 7th studio album for a 2020 release, Shapeshifter continue to innovate while solidifying their status as New Zealand’s premiere live electronic outfit.

The eagerly anticipated first taste is the single "Break Me Down", combining the intensity of modern drum and bass with mature song writing and inspirational vocals – a combination the bands legion of fans know well.

The five-strong live line-up of PDigsss (vocals), Sam Trevethick (guitar/synths/sampler), Dan McGruer (synths/sampler), Nick Robinson (bass/synths/MPC) and Darren Mathiassen (drums) have created their very own heavy soul; a stadium-sized sound which adds layers of drum & bass, jazz, funk, rock and electronica to solid bass culture foundations.

Written on tour in the London studio of Brad “Baloo” Ellis (Nextmen, Wilkinson, Little Mix, Plan B) the tune has already been a highlight of live performances at New Zealand’s biggest festivals including Homegrown and Bay Dreams.
