The Low Down

It’s been nearly three years since SA rock legends, TAXI VIOLENCE released their 5th album, Tenfold. But they are hitting 2017 hard and fast – and with a twist.  They intend to release multiple EPs during the course of this year.

“To release music in smaller batches allow us to give our fans new material more regularly. In the end it is still going to come together to form a full album, it will just be released in installments,” says Rian Zietsman, guitarist for Taxi Violence.

The first offering in this series will be named Shape and Form I.

Shape and Form I, as well as the music video for the first single, Fake It, will be released on 13 February.  To give fans a taste, Fake It will premiere on 5FM’s Hamman Time on Thursday morning, 26 January at 08h40.

Thereafter the single will be available as a free download on the band’s SoundCloud channel.

The artwork will evolve with each EP’s release. “It symbolises progression and evolution. Nothing stays the same, including us and what we do as a band,” says Rian.

The sound of the first installment of the Shape and Form series is SUPER SIZED to say the least. It is almost inevitable that there will be a natural evolution of sorts. “We have been doing this for a long time and there is a broader change, but within the microcosm of this album, I am sure the sound is going to change from episode to episode,” says Rian.

The new set of songs will be broken in at Up the Creek and other upcoming shows:

  • 27 January: Up the Creek
  • 19 February: At Hillcrest Quarry, Cape Town with AKING: CLICK HERE 
  • 19 March: Backsberg Picnic Concert Series
  • 29 April: Africa Bike Week

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...
