Zebra & Giraffe

After the successful release of their second album ‘The Inside’ in September 2010, Zebra & Giraffe began 2011 in fine style with the release of the 2nd single ‘Terrified’. The song reached the Top 20 on the 5FM Top 40 and #1 on various campus stations. The band also scooped another SA first by filming a video for the song entirely on the iPhone4. The video also reached #1 on the MK Top 10.

In May 2010, Zebra & Giraffe were nominated at the SAMA awards for Best Rock Album – their 2nd consecutive nomination in this category – they also performed their latest single ‘End of the Road’ live at the awards show. Earlier in May, they were also invited to perform at the exclusive Musexpo showcase in Hollywood, Los Angeles alongside bands from across Europe, the UK and America.

May also saw the release of their 3rd single ‘End of the Road’ which features a video shot by acclaimed directing cinematographer Rob Malpage – the video subsequently spent 3 weeks at the top of the MK charts. The band is about to release their 4th single to radio called ‘Undo These Lies’ with a video due to be out in August.

Van Coke Kartel

Van Coke Kartel kicked 2011 off with supporting international acts Alkaline Trio and Funeral for A Friend as part of the Ramfest 2011 Festival. Their explosive live performances during this tour earned them recognition as one of the hottest acts in SA today. In May and June 2011 the band visited London and Amsterdam to play various successful shows with the highlight of performing with Springbok Nude Girls at the premium London venue Shepard's Bush Empire. The band will be returning to Amsterdam in 2012.

Van Coke Kartel will be visiting Taiwan in July 2011 to play three shows in Taipei. The highlight will be playing at the Hohaiyan Rock Festival with an estimated attendance of 500 000 music lovers.

On their return to SA, Van Coke Kartel will start pre production for the new album with Theo Crous at Bellville Studios. The album will be released in November 2011.

The bands first single ''Vir Almal'' will be released (free download) at the beginning of September 2011. A accompanying music video featuring the complete new band will be released at the same time.
