When New Zealand Shapeshifter's five-strong line up of PDigsss (vocals), Devin Abrams (sax/keys/synths), Sam Trevethick (guitar/synths/sampler), Nick Robinson (bass/synths/MPC) and Johnny Hooves (drums), fuse their talents as one band, they drive a sound as unrelenting as a force of nature. The System is a Vampire is a true document of their heavy soul, designed to motivate dance floors, arenas and festival fields.
While New Zealand Shapeshifter continue to set their own terms for their music and how it's presented, this didn't stop The System is a Vampire debuting at number one on the New Zealand album charts. Its success has been as unstoppable as the rolling drum breaks that fuel New Zealand Shapeshifter – the album was released on a Friday and by lunchtime had sold more albums than any other that week, going on to become their third LP to clock platinum sales.
