Freddy’s annual summer roady around New Zealand in Jan 2019 is stopping off at Western Springs. The 'Trickle Down' tour gets a super-charged tune up with the addition of some incredible tour bus buddies; DJ legend Norman Jay MBE direct from London plus local super stars Ladi6, MC Silva, Logg Cabin & Printor, Unknown Mortal Orchestra and Troy Kingi.

Brand new track 'Trickle Down' is an electronic-driven reaction to the politics of the day – the false economic principle of wealth trickling down from the 1% to the 99%. As they sing of running out of patience while waiting for the rain to fall, a confident, steady beat propels us forward as a sign of promise.
Recorded at the band’s BAYS studio in their Wellington hometown, the track arose from a series of jams and is a slice of the new album they’re cooking up as a follow-up to their earlier releases; BAYS, Blackbird, Dr Boondigga & The Big BW and record breaking Based on a True Story.


Freddy's NZ summer roady through January 2019 will be an ideal opportunity to witness Trickle Down live. Newcomers to the Freddy's tour bus include dirt-blues extraordinaire Troy Kingi and Unknown Mortal Orchestra. Freddy's summer tour frequent flyers returning for 2019 include the incredible Norman Jay MBE, NZ's hip-hop and soul queen Ladi6, MC Silva, Logg Cabin & Printor and Troy Kingi.
