Flight of the Conchords Announce First North American Appearance in Years
New Zealand comedy duo Flight of the Conchords haven't offered up much in the way of details behind their feature film, but they have come through with at least one live appearance for 2016. This July, they play the Newport Folk Festival in Newport, RI.

The fest takes place July 22 to 24, with Flight of the Conchords' opening night slot marking the first North American performance from Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie's since 2013. The group joins a lineup that includes Father John Misty, Ray LaMontagne, Villagers and more. You'll find more info over here.

While nothing else has been confirmed just yet, Clement had hinted last year that "New Zealand's 4th most popular guitar-based digi-bongo a cappella-rap-funk-comedy folk duo" were "hoping" to head out on a full summer tour. Additional North American appearances, if any, have yet to be announced.

As far as the band's apparently in-the-works movie goes, Clement had explained last summer that various ideas were being batted around, but "who knows if it will ever be made."

He told Indiewire: "we've written some notes for some different film ideas. We're not down to the stage where we're going, 'The film is going to be like this,' it could be this, this, this, this, this."

The band have not issued an LP since 2009's I Told You I Was Freaky.
