Australian psych-rock band Tame Impala will return to New Zealand this year to play their biggest ever show in the country, at Auckland's Spark Arena. 

The one-off concert on April 16 will be hot on the heels of the band's upcoming album, The Slow Rush, to be released in February. 

As well as giving Kiwi fans their first live taste of their new music, the Grammy-nominated act will likely perform their best known hits, such as 'The Less I Know The Better' and 'Let It Happen'. 

Tame Impala will be supported by Texan instrumental three-piece Khruangbin, who will be making their New Zealand debut. 

Last year, Tame Impala headlined at international festivals like Coachella and Glastonbury. The band is led by multi-instrumentalist Kevin Parker, who has collaborated with Lady Gaga, Kanye West and Travis Scott. 

Kiwi audiences were introduced to Tame Impala when they played at Laneway Festival in 2013, followed by Big Day Out the following year. They went on to play headline shows in Wellington and Auckland in 2015. 

Tickets to this year's gig go on sale Tuesday, January 28.
