Indie-rock band The Paper Kites, who hailing from Australia, are about to kick off a tour throughout New Zealand, Australia and North America, released an album last year titled twelvefour—but every song that they wrote haven't made it onto an official album yet.

“It's hard to curate an album, because every song serves a purpose and is intentionally placed to be a part of the journey of the record," said the band's frontman, Sam Bentley. "So, to swap out one song for another meant changing how the record would make the listener feel as a whole. So, unfortunately these didn't make it, but we still enjoy them. In fact, we’ve played it on the road for the last few tours.”

The two songs, "Holes," and "Breathing Fighting Love" have not been available anywhere until now. The two are completely opposite of each other and it gets the listener a taste of a band that can play more than one style. You can listen to both "Holes" and "Breathing FIghting Love," only on AXS below.

The band will be making stops in major cities in the U.S. with Passenger, including The Ogden Theatre in Denver, The Wiltern in Los Angeles and the Showbox SoDo in Seattle. Take a look at all tour dates below.
