Metal heavyweights, 36 Crazyfists are making their much anticipated return to South Africa this April on their Lanterns Tour, where they will play two epic shows to their adoring SA fanbase. The band made their first visit in 2015 and have returned this year to unleash their new material. Potchefstroom Herald spoke to frontman, Brock Lindow on their return to SA and their latest album Lanterns. Check it out here:

      1. Hi, guys it does not always happen that a band returns to South Africa for a second show. What made you decide to come back to SA a second time? The first trip was such a life changing  experience that we had to come back and do it again!
      2. What was the highlights of your 2015 Krank’d Up show in SA and what are you looking forward to most, this time around? I think meeting all the wonderful people and hearing the stories on how the band impacted their lives was really special for us.
      3. Your latest album “Lanterns” represent more of a self-rejuvenation for the band, looking for positivity? How important would you say are the lyrical content of music in today’s age? Well it’s everything to me as it’s my job in the band. Lyrics are what I have always appreciated with the bands I love, I’d say it’s extremely important.
      4. What sound did you go for on “Lanterns”? Was it a mixture of sounds from previous albums? How do you feel  about the overall response to the album? The response has been really great and I think it’s a good balance of the past and the future, not losing sight of the signature sound but not repeating ourselves either.
      5. What would you say makes 36 Crazyfists still relevant after more than two decades as a band. In other words what do you still offer as a band?  What do you attribute to the band’s longevity? I believe that if you have your fans continuing to support you than the relevance is alive and well, we have had a connection with our people on a level that has been very tangible all this time.
      6. What can fans expect this time around on your two shows and do have any messages for your SA fanbase?

We will be jamming old and new songs and we are excited to come back and rock SA, thanks to all the fans for coming out and we can’t wait to see you again.

36 Crazyfists will play two shows at the following venues with some of the top local acts supporting this acclaimed Alaskan band.
