TAXI VIOLENCE will make you like Mondays again

TAXI VIOLENCE will release a series of EPs in 2017 culminating into a full length album release at the end of the year.  This series is dubbed Shape and Form. 13th February 2017 sees the release of Shape and Form I.

Releasing music in increments allows the band to give their fans “new material more regularly v”.

The first single from the Shape and Form I EP, Fake It, was released on SoundCloud as a free download at the end of January 2017.

Lead singer and lyricist, George van der Spuy, explains how the idea for the song was born: “I think most people can relate to this song or have been put in situations, like a new job, that you’re not entirely qualified for.  You have no clue what you’re doing, but desperately need the money, so you learn it as you go along or ‘fake it till you make it.’ Sometimes, when we write new songs, for instance, I don’t have all the lyrics memorised and I kind of just ‘wing it’ and hope nobody realises, haha!”

Bassist for Taxi Violence, Loedi van Renen, also an accomplished music video maker at Kill City Pictures, ran with this idea and turned the music video for Fake It into a hilarious modern day rock ‘n roll take on the 1989 black comedy, Weekend at Bernie’s.

Name is Austin, peeps call me Austinrock. I like to interact with bands. You DO NOT have my permission to utilize any of my profile information nor any of the content contained here \m/{*¿*}\m/ ...THERE...OK. I'm a huge Melodeath metal fan. I'm proud to be a METALHEAD. Metal isn't for everybody, it's for the chosen few. Most friends I have tell me they don't understand why I like metal, that it is too much noise. They just going to have to listen beyond the noise and the truth is they don't have to figure it out, it is either in you or it isn't. Metal is my morning coffee and it's my night sleeping pills...
