THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE: “As one of South Africa’s most decorated and applauded bands of the last three decades, Springbok Nude Girls’ work ethic has never waivered. Their long-awaited full-length Partypocalypse — reportedly the last studio release that will feature the original lineup — is all the proof you need.
Through a series of serendipitous events in the early ’90s in the small wine-making town of Stellenbosch, Arno Carstens, Theo Crous, Adriaan Brand, Arno Blumer and Francois Kruger became Springbok Nude Girls. Little did they know that they would go on to become one of the most loved rock bands South Africa has ever seen, known for their high-energy stage shows and unique musical sound which combines rock, punk, reggae, metal, funk, and jazz.
They played their first gig in September 1994 in a small bar and released their first album Neanderthal 1 the following year. Since then, this platinum-selling, award-winning band have gone on to record albums that contain some of the country’s most-beloved anthems. They have headlined every major South African music festival and performed at some of the most auspicious international festivals in Europe, including Pukkelpop in Belgium.
Some 26 years after their first show, with 11 albums, two live recordings, an EP, two DVD releases, and a U.K.-exclusive release in their coveted arsenal, SNG’s creative curiosity is showing no signs of abating. If anything, their greatest work lies ahead, and with it a growing wall of fans invested in passionate, adrenalin-injected modern rock alchemy. Stay tuned.”
