SINGLE SHOW: Band of Horses will perform a single show in New Zealand in August.

Band of Horses say they are looking forward to "exploring" when they come to New Zealand in August.

The alt-country act, which last performed here at a sold out show at The King's Arms in July, 2008, will play at The Powerstation on August 3 to promote their new album, Infinite Arms.

Guitarist Tyler Ramsey told Stuff.co.nz they were looking forward to the show.

"We had such a blast there last time," he said.

"I think we hit it on a weird couple of days. The weather was rainy and cold, I’m really hoping we go back there when it’s not raining and we can explore a little bit."

Band of Horses will also be playing several Australian tour dates as well as the Splendour in the Grass festival.
