Springbok Nude Girls’ work ethic has never-ever waivered. 2021 saw the band signing to specialist rock and metal label Mongrel Records for the release of their new album Partypocalypse, and the last to feature original members Adriaan Brand (keyboards / trumpet) and Arno Blumer (bass). With Blumer and Brand now living abroad, the bulk of the new songs were recorded in 2019 when they were together for the last time.
Vocalist Arno Carstens explains
“when we started work on the record in 2019, we had a month to put it all down, and we worked within our limited timeline to produce some of the bands best performances to date. Little did we know that the album would have this personality that would reveal itself against the chaos of the planet in 2021.”
“The bonus to having created a good album is the luxury of being part of the bigger Mongrel Records family and their meticulous attention to how we present that to everyone. Mongrel Records bring a sense of calm to the never-ending chaos of the Springbok Nude Girls and we feel incredibly fortunate…”
Produced by the band, Partypocalypse is recorded and mixed by the bands guitarist Theo Crous at his renowned Belville Studios facility.
Drummer Francois Kruger comments on Partypocalypse
“Theo did a fantastic job mixing and engineering the record, and I love the live feel of the songs… Arno’s lyrics are some of the most beautiful that he has written…”
Carstens explains Partypocalypse
“The album encapsulates the craziness of our times, there’s nothing out there like it, and I think we are very blessed to still be able to have a unique voice in today’s ever-changing world…”
