About

Tribal. Supremely talented. Fiercely noble. Richly proud. Shepherds Reign are bringing their house to your ears, mind and heart, their power and passion unequivocal, their musical voices luminescent and majestic. Hailing from South Auckland New Zealand, and thus Polynesian by birth and blood, Filiva’a James (vocals and keytar), Gideon Voon (guitar), Oliver Leupolu (guitar/production), Shaymen Rameka (drums) and Joseph Oti-George (bass) are not playing games. Shepherds Reign is life, Shepherds Reign is survival, Shepherds Reign is mental and physical health and Shepherds Reign is what they are on this planet to do. Their voice is their mighty, fearsome music and their vocation is to share with the world every aspect of lives and cultures deserve the international ear. Whether unleashing the raw, guttural tribal roar of “Aiga” or the biker-rough riffery which is “Ua Masa'a”, there is a special passion and power in every single note Shepherds reign share with the world, a rare presence which demands the world stage.


 

Believe the hype, this is one of the best metal albums of the year. In a time where music is consumed via singles and playlists, this album from front-to-back was an incredible journey with each song standing on its own. For those wanting to experience an exciting and international standard of heavy music, look no further and embrace the Shepherds. Fa'afetai.” - Kris Raven

DISTURBED with Shepherds Reign - New Zealand 2024

Spark Arena, Auckland

RETURNING TO NEW ZEALAND FOR ONE SHOW ONLY IN MARCH 2024! WITH SUPPORT FROM SHEPHERDS REIGN. Frontier Touring is stoked to welcome one of the biggest rock acts of this generation, Disturbed back to New Zealand for one massive show only at Auckland’s Spark Arena! Last on our shores playing to a sold-out house in 2016, Disturbed are renowned for their intensely electrifying live concerts. Emerging out of Chicago at the turn of the century with an insidious, infectious, and inimitable vision without comparison, Disturbed have quietly dominated hard rock on their own terms. South Auckland Polynesian metal band Shepherds Reign will join Disturbed for their only New Zealand. The band is made up of 5 brothers from Pacific, Maori and Asian descent, who are united in their passion for writing and performing hard hitting music that expresses where they are from and their life experiences. Singles ‘Le Manu’ and ‘Aiga’ showcase the band’s forceful performance and cultural integrity and more recently have become well respected for the primal onstage performance.
