Legendary South African rock band, SPRINGBOK NUDE GIRLS, will release new music at the end of April 2018.

During their successful and powerful nation-wide tour in 2017, the Nude Girls found that their fans were as hungry as ever for their music.  It felt like a natural progression to write new material.

“It is 10 years after our last album and 20 years since we wrote Blue Eyes; all signs, I guess. With a band like us who has been together for so long… when the feeling takes hold, you go with it.  You never know if it’s your last. For us making an album these days is not about relevance or making some inflated statement. It’s about 5 guys doing what they do best and having too much fun with it. Hopefully the end result will reflect this.” Arno Carstens

SPRINGBOK NUDE GIRLS:  Back with new music  +  The Beautiful Evolution Tour

Through a series of serendipitous events in the early 90’s in the small wine making town of Stellenbosch, Arno Carstens, Theo Crous, Adriaan Brand, Arno Blumer and Francois Kruger became The 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 Punk, Reggae, Metal, Funk and Jazz.

They played their first gig in September 1994 in a small bar in Stellenbosch 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 our 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.

In 2015, Thinking Owl Films, in association with Sony Music Entertainment Africa, released an exciting documentary film which tells the story of the band’s early beginnings, touching on the crippling censorship of that time, and then the liberation of 1994 and how, for these kids, there was finally freedom in music.

Twenty four years after their first show, and two decades after the release of “Blue Eyes”, the song that redirected the trajectory of the band, 2018 marks the year where it all comes full circle.  The band are going back to their roots, and releasing their music independently.  This is what the fans have been waiting for: unpolluted, powerful, real and rampant; as they were then, they are now.

The first single, “Beautiful Evolution”, is a driving anthem that examines the paradox of human progression and hypothesizes that to halt mortal degradation, one must look to and take lessons from the past.  It’s an ironic call to action:

It’s a beautiful piece of evolution
So many problems with no solution
Be kind, be kind, be kinder than kind
Unwind

“Beautiful Evolution” will be released exclusively on just 60 x limited edition signed 7# vinyls, with the savage sounding “Best Friends, Best Enemies” exploding onto the B-side.

This exclusive vinyl will only be available through the 60 VIP concert ticket packages and full details on how to get your copy are available on www.nudegirls.co.za
