Alien Weaponry reveal new single, "Ihenga"

Alien Weaponry

Piotr Kwasnik

In 2021, Alien Weaponry, the New Zealand metal band, released their second album, Tangaroa. Their music focuses on the historical and cultural heritage of the Māori people, and their efforts to share these stories with a global audience have earned them recognition. Last year, they were honored with the Aotearoa Music Award for Best Rock Artist, a prestigious accolade in New Zealand's music industry. The band's latest music video for the track "Īhenga" continues their mission of preserving and spreading Māori history.

Alien Weaponry says:

When the Te Arawa people first came to Aotearoa (New Zealand) from Hawaiki (greater Tahitian Island group), they set about exploring the new land. Īhenga traveled throughout the North Island of Aotearoa and named many places that still have these names today.
