36 CRAZYFISTS 28th APRIL JHB
Alaska’s finest to make their South African return
Back in 2015 during their face-melting performance at Krank’d Up festival front man Brock Lindow of Alaskan metal legends 36 Crazyfists promised the ravenous crowd that the band will return to our tip of Africa soon.
Well staying true to his word and never letting their rabid fan base down, Brock has kept his promise and thus the band will be making their way back to South Africa this week for two exclusive club shows, namely Mercury Live in Cape Town and Rumours Rock City in Johannesburg in support of their new album, ‘Lanterns‘.
“Lanterns represents the light we all seek,” explains Brock.
“These songs are all about struggling to locate it and trying to find the way to move forward and get past
what has mentally hampered you in your life.”

Unbridled honesty cast in unpredictable metallic soundscapes and icy melodies has
defined the veteran group since its emergence in 1994.
Their journey would be
earmarked by classics such as 2004’s ‘A Snow Capped Romance‘.
The breakout album yielded the hit “Bloodwork,” which not only featured on the Resident Evil:
Apocalypse Soundtrack, but also garnered a cumulative total of 7 million streams.
Along the way, the boys toured with the likes of everyone from
Alice In Chains and Killswitch Engage to Atreyu and Fear Factory.
2015 saw the release of their Spinefarm debut, Time and Trauma.
It crash landed at
#2 on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart, a career high, and earned acclaim from Metal
Injection, Blabbermouth, Loudwire, Revolver, and more.
Meanwhile, the single
“Also Am I” racked up over 1.3 million Spotify streams and counting.
