AUCKLAND ROCK BAND PLUTO MAKE WELCOME MUSICAL RETURN WITH RELEASE OF NEW ALBUM IV
Iconic New Zealand rock bandPLUTO have today released their fourth studio album, the aptly titledIV. The band say “On paper it isIV, but its title is whatever you, the listener decides. So sit back and enjoy the ride, because that’s all it is, just a ride.”
Releasing under their own company5 Moon Entertainment, the long wait was worth it as PlutoIVsees a true and full return to form for these talented musicians. Once more Pluto combines sonic pop melodies and intelligent lyrics to create the memorable, evocative and seductive songs that their fans love the band for.
“We are so proud of this group of songs, and we finally finished what we started so many years ago”, says front-man Milan Borich.

Having given everyone a taste of things to come with the surprise drop of the triumphant hook-laden first single ‘Oh My Lonely’, the boys Milan Borich, Tim Arnold, Matthias Jordan, Mike Hall and Michael Franklin-Browne signaled that old wounds had healed and that more was to come.
Pluto had already mastered the art of the multi-layered rock sound – sometimes indie, moody and restrained, at other times angular, hand-clap pop – oftentimes full-energy, anthemic rock. At their peak they went double platinum, becoming a household name throughout the mid 2000’s with critically acclaimed hits ‘Long White Cross’ and ‘Dance Stamina’ and touring the world playing prestigious festivals. That was before egos reigned supreme and relationships imploded, forcing Pluto to disband and follow other paths and projects.
Fast forward to the chance finding of an unfinished track becoming the initial catalyst and Borich decided that enough time had passed to reach out and reconnect with his old bandmates. It was an easy reignition, with the rest of the guys also ready to bury any misgivings and come back together and before long the boys found themselves back in the studio, with good friendsJol Mulholland andNick Abbottproducing.
A decade in the making, this album thoroughly exemplifies the old saying “good things take time” as take time it certainly did. A new chapter, even a new beginning maybe…..whatever this is, it’s a definite welcome back to one of the finest, most exciting and alluring bands New Zealand has ever produced!

Of their return to playing live, Borich says “You can expect the most opulent Pluto experience there has ever been, full of twists and turns…a labyrinth of emotions.” Get tickets for the showsHERE or go towww.banishedmusic.com for more information.
