Kiwi rock band the D4 are celebrating the 21st anniversary of their critically acclaimed debut record, 6TWENTY. To mark the occasion there will be a limited run of 180g vinyl, a new-take on the album cover and extensive liner notes written by Dion and Jimmy.
Between 1998-2006, the D4 took on the world and their run sheet is impressive. They toured relentlessly playing clubs and festivals in the US, UK, Japan, Europe, Australia and New Zealand - these included, SXSW, Glastonbury, Reading, Leeds, Fuji Rock, Pukkelpop and The Big Day Out. On the strength of their live shows and the reception of the debut album, the D4 were lauded by stalwarts of the scene past and present and invited to play and tour alongside legacy heroes and contemporary upstarts including: The New York Dolls, the Dictators, Bo Diddley, the Pretty Things, Iggy and the Stooges, Guitar Wolf, and the Hives.
‘Rock'n'Roll Motherfucker’ was an NME single of the month in 2001 and their first US single ‘Get Loose’ went Top 40 on mainstream US radio.
John Peel invited the band to record a Peel Live session that aired on his legendary BBC Radio 1 show and they performed live on late night US TV shows, David Letterman, Jimmy Kimmel, Craig Kilborn and Last Call with Carson Daly.
