“Back to shed light on the local music scene is Hutt rock band Alphashift, launching their debut album at Bodega on Saturday night. Called Light In The Darkest Night, the release is a major event for the hard-working band. The first single off the album, A Thousand Voices, is a high-energy rock song typical of the group's sound. "It has been a real shift in gear for a band that draws its raw energy from the live atmosphere," said spokesman Jeremy Wheeler, "but they have become more focused because of it". Alphashift have been converting audiences to their explosive rock style since 2006. In 2009, they won the New Zealand final of the Global Battle of the Bands, which came with a trip to Sydney to compete in the Australasian final against 19 other acts. - Alphashift album launch, Bodega, 101 Ghuznee St, Wellington, 8pm, Saturday, June 11, entry $5.
