Watch: Blindspott perform acoustic version of 'Phlex' ahead of NZ tour

  • 25/02/2020

Ahead of Blindspott's upcoming nationwide tour performing their debut album live in full, the Kiwi rockers have teased fans with a special performance of one of its most well-known tracks. 

Members Damian Alexander and Marcus Powell visited The Rock Morning Rumble on Tuesday and performed an acoustic version of their hit 'Phlex'. 

The sentimental 2003 song is said to have become an anthem for Blindspott fans dealing through a difficult time or struggling with the loss of a loved one and was held in a particularly special place for the group's members.

"It had a story that meant a lot to us but by God did it mean a lot to the general public," drummer Shelton Woolright told Newshub. 

"We didn't realise when writing it how important it would become for so many I can't wait to hit the road we're visiting some spots we haven't been to in over 15 years so I will be great to revisit this album at the same time." 

Woolright said it's humbling that fans have continued to listen to their tunes over the years, keeping the dream alive for the band who are dedicated to doing what they love. 

"It's really is the best feeling in the world to know as an artist you've made an impact."  

Blindspott's 2020 tour kicks off in Kerikeri on March 6 and concludes in Invercargill on April 11. Tickets are currently on sale.
