Posted by Aileen Raymond Saturday, July 6, 2013 0 comments

VAN COKE KARTEL is hardly back in South Africa from their very successful Afrikaans Verower Harte Tour in The Netherlands, and they are ready to hit the national circuit to liven up winter with their Jägermeister, Monster Energy and Music Connection presents: Van Coke Kartel Winter Acoustic Tour. The tour will feature the band performing acoustic versions of their hard edge rock songs. The smaller intimate venues promise a cozy but lively atmosphere, a winning remedy to keep the winter blues at bay.

The fifth studio album.

Since the release of their fourth studio album, Wie’s Bang, Van Coke Kartel has been on top of their game.  They are one of the most talked about rock acts in South Africa. They have been dominating the charts, winning endless awards, touring nationally and internationally, they release spectacular music videos and have become a must-see at top local music festivals.

In spite of their hectic schedule, Van Coke Kartel felt inspired to start working on new material soon after the release of Wie’s Bang in November 2011. Producer Theo Crous was the obvious choice and after a production meeting a conscious decision was made to write and record material as it came about.

The goal was to capture the energy of the band by playing the songs live during the recording and to record the new material over a period of time. This approach will give the album a more diverse flavor as the music is written over a period and not in just a few months.

Wynand Myburgh, bassist for Van coke about the new album:

‘’We have always put time aside to write an album and only after we have the collection of songs we would start recording. The recording will be done in a month. This time we want to capture what is happening in our lives and around us over a period and not just in a few months. By doing this the final collection of songs promises to be more complex and exciting and a greater listening experience’’.

The first three tracks were recorded at Bellville Studios in September 2012.  Since then Van Coke Kartel has recorded a total of seven tracks and will be returning to the studio to record another three songs before the end of July 2013. The album will be completed in time for the release date - 27 September 2013.

‘’We are trying to work with whatever comes about and not be too bothered by song structures, etc.’’ says Wynand Myburgh. ‘’Jedd Kossew has taken up the role of coming up with riffs and guitar licks and Francois will add words that he has been scribbling in his note book over the past year. As a band we will construct it into songs and all add our flavour.’’

The still untitled album will be launched with a national tour by the end of September 2013.
