SIX60 has recently released their new album ‘Castle St’ (Universal/Virgin Music) on the 6 October 2022, but now you can finally cop the album on vinyl which is released today (16 December 2022)! Holiday Records was again the pressing plant behind the country's biggest band's vinyl release.

The eleven-track record features their recent singles ‘Before You Leave’ and ‘Never Been Tonight / Nobody Knows’ and is available digitally to stream & download, as well as physically via CD, cassette and of course, vinyl.
The album harks back to the band’s early days: the album title and cover artwork both refer to the place where the band first met, formed and performed.
Of the album, Matiu says: “It’s our greatest work to date. A real coming together of every member of the band to capture a unique moment in time. It’s the kind of album you can’t make in your bedroom and need to make with other great musicians. We are so excited to finally share it with the world”.
SIX60 are the most commercially successful and award-winning band in the country’s history. They gained worldwide recognition last year when they performed a sold-out tour across their home country, while the rest of the world isolated. This captured the world’s attention, as images and footage of their joyous, celebratory performances in New Zealand highlighted just how much the world missed live music performance.
SIX60 were covered by the world’s media last year - the band were featured on TV, radio and press across the globe. BBC News highlighted that the shows are “just unimaginable right now - the rock band SIX60 are out every weekend playing to thousands of fans” in their extended segment on the band back in January 2021, ITV’s Good Morning Britain also featured the band, with then-presenter Piers Morgan citing them as “the hottest band in the world right now”. NME featured the band, interviewing Matiu for a feature which noted that the band are “currently the planet’s biggest touring band”, and CLASH Magazine reviewed the show - the only live music review on the planet at the time: “SIX60 are riding high and don’t look like they’ll be stopping any time soon”. In a lead interview in The Telegraph newspaper, the band’s show at Auckland’s Eden Park stadium was named ”the biggest gig since Covid began”. The show was the most-shared entertainment story in the world that week - despite taking place the same weekend as The Oscars.
