Published Sep 15, 2010Controversial South African rap innovators Die Antwoord recently revealed the details for their tongue-in-cheek Interscope debut, $0$, which will be released on October 12. On that same day, the group will kick off a North American tour in Vancouver at the Commodore Ballroom.
From there, Die Antwoord will head down the west coast for a week before hopping across the continent to Chicago. Then they'll head north, eventually playing two more Canadian shows. Those appearances are taking place at Toronto's Phoenix Theatre on October 24 and Montreal's Metropolis on October 25. US dates in Seattle, Chicago and New York will be joined by Deadmau5.
Whether you're calling bullshit on Die Antwoord's deeply layered sense of humour or you can't get enough of their otherworldly beats, there's no question that they're an incredible live act. As they told Exclaim! in an interview, they plan to release five albums and five movies and then "disappear," so catch them while you can!
