After taking some time off to reset, Kiwi reggae fusion band Sons of Zion have announced a seven-date tour nationwide in August.

The group, who boast more than 40 million streams on Spotify, have been using the last few months as 'school holidays' to take some time out with their families.

Caleb Haapu told Newshub now that their batteries are recharged, they are excited to realign with fans.

"I speak on behalf of most musicians when I say there's nothing like the feeling you get when going on stage.

"Seeing and hearing the fans sing every word as if the song was their own. It always buzzes me out and makes me proud to do what I do."

The 'Come Home' tour celebrates the release of the band’s new hit single of the same name.

Haapu says he and members Rio, Sam, Joel, Matt and Ross have been overwhelmed with the love and support fans have shown for the new song.

The hit debuted at number 6 on the NZ singles chart.

"We are so excited to see how far this new journey goes."

Tickets go on sale Wednesday July 3.
