After winning Best Group, Best Song & Best Album two years in a row at the New Zealand Music Awards, taking out Best Record at the 2022 Rolling Stone Awards, Best Song at the 2023 Rolling Stone Awards and being voted New Zealand's Best Live Act by Radio New Zealand, L.A.B are on fire as they release their sixth album.

L.A.B’s groove blends an eclectic mix of soul, reggae, blues, funk, rock and electronic - all combining to create a sound entirely their own. Formed by Brad Kora, L.A.B comprises his brother Stu Kora, Ara Adams-Tamatea, Miharo Gregory & frontman Joel Shadbolt. 

The past five years have seen them release a new album each year, and have since become a mainstay in the NZ Music Charts and on the festival circuit, headlining every major festival across New Zealand and Australia from the Byron Bay Bluesfest & WOMAD to Rhythm and Vines & Electric Avenue.

L.A.B’s 2022 summer run of sold-out stadiums saw them perform to over 70,000 people in Australia & New Zealand, including a sold-out show at Auckland’s iconic Western Springs. 2023 has seen the band not only finish their sixth album, but also sell out tours in New Zealand & Australia, playing to over 25,000 in Australia alone. This was followed directly with their first performances in the United States, capped off with a performance at the iconic California Roots Festival & a sold-out Hawaiian show. October saw their debut European shows, selling out both Paradiso in Amsterdam & the 02 Forum in London. The band have been recently profiled & spotlighted globally by Dolby with an Artist Spotlight video. 

After releasing five albums in five years, the band have cemented themselves on the NZ charts, with ‘In The Air’ and ‘Why Oh Why’ both reaching Number One. Their accomplishments include all five albums reaching multi-platinum status, alongside 20 multi-Platinum singles & 12 Gold singles.
