Grammy® nominated New Zealand folk comedy duo Flight of the Conchords will kick off an eight-week North American tour in Tampa.
The tour coincides with the conclusion of the second season of HBO’s hit show Flight of the Conchords and the release of the duo’s as-yet-untitled second full-length album for Sub Pop.
Flight of the Conchords follows the trials and tribulations of a two man, digi-folk band from New Zealand as they try to make a name for themselves in their adopted home of New York City. The band is made up of Bret McKenzie on guitar and vocals, and Jemaine Clement on guitar and vocals.
Bret and Jemaine have moved to New York in the hope of forging a successful music career. So far they've managed to find a manager (whose "other job" is at the New Zealand Consulate), one fan (a married obsessive) and one friend (who owns the local pawn shop) – but not much else. Flight of the Conchords' self-titled 2008 full-length is nominated for a Grammy for best comedy album. This follows their 2007 Grammy win for the EP The Distant Future in the same category.
