Born in Auckland, New Zealand in 2010, Ekko Park are a rock band best described as “a ship captained by an Irishman and crewed by 3 kiwis” – singer Joe, a born and bred Belfast boy, travelled the globe playing music before settling in NZ, where he teamed up with 3 kiwi fellas. A collaboration of diverse backgrounds forming a unique and explosive offering in the NZ music landscape.
In November 2013 their debut album ‘Tomorrow Tomorrow Today’ entered the Official NZ Album Chart at #15 and was the #5 NZ Album. Engineered and co-produced by Andrew Buckton (Crowded House, Midnight Youth, The D4, Clap Clap Riot)
‘Tomorrow Tomorrow Today’ captures Ekko Park in its purity – melodic and sonic, thrown together with powered energy. The album features the singles My Crime & Simpatico (both going to #1 on the iTunes NZ Rock Chart) and Becoming The Enemy (going to #2 on the iTunes NZ Rock Chart).
‘Always A Fire’ the final single from the album, sees a May 2014 release in build up to a nationwide New Zealand Winter Tour with London based I AM GIANT before Ekko Park head to Europe for their first Ireland & UK tour in September & October.
