Flight of the Conchords announce tour dates and promise new music

Comedy-folk duo will head out on the road this summer

Flight Of The Conchords have announced reunion tour dates as well as plans to work on new music together.

Jemaine Clement and Brett McKenzie will head out on the road for the first time in three years this summer with a lengthy US jaunt announced today. They will start in Cleveland on June 11 and play gigs up to their previously announced appearance at Newport Folk Festival.

The ‘Flight of the Conchords sing Flight of the Conchords Tour,’ is duo’s first since co-headlining 2014’s Oddball Comedy & Curiosity Tour. A press release states “Jemaine and Bret have new material in the works, which they’ll showcase exclusively at these shows.”

Clement previously hinted at the reunion. Talking to Consequence of Sound in August last year, Jermaine Clement said “We are hoping to announce a tour. We’ll announce it before the end of the year, hopefully, and then some time next year get on the road … after we get some new guitar strings and that sort of thing.”

Meanwhile, it has been rumoured that the comedy pair will return with a featur-length film. Rhys Darby, who played hapless manager Murray in the TV series, recently confirmed that he is waiting for the script to be finished.
