Hailed as South Africa’s first hard rock supergroup The Devil’s Party Band is a band like no other. The band consists of Anthonie van der Walt (ex Thysis and Jack Hammer), Chris van der Walt (Vulvodynia), Werner Bosman (Led Zeppelin Tribute Band) and Jason Oosthuisen (Van Coke Cartel, Oooth).
All of these okes have made massive strides in both the local and international music industry. Expect original “Devils Music” as it was labelled from the earliest of times. Great original songs with influences from bands like Led Zeppelin, Metallica and Guns N’ Roses.
Today sees the release of their debut single “Band Outta Town” taken from their upcoming 6 track EP which is set for release later this year.
The Devil’s Party Band takes you back to Sunset Boulevard
It’s revival of the 80’s LA rock scene like never before. When asked why they’ve gone for that dirty LA rock sound, bassist Chris van der Walt said “In this controlled and regulated world we’re living in there’s just too many “safe” bands and nice things out there, we’re here to put the bad-ass and attitude back into rock music”.
The Devil’s Party Bands’ belief is that people are out to have a good time. Their music gives their fans the opportunity to let loose and enjoy themselves. It all started out as a fun project, and the band believes this is key to their recipe. “We do what we love, and this is our sound we grew up with it, it’s in our blood.“ says Anthonie van der Walt.
“Banned Outta Town” is available now on all digital platforms including Apple Music, Spotify & Deezer. Check out the lyric video for the song below:
I don’t know about you guys, but I’m blown away. When I was listening to it, I actually waited for my mom to break down my door for playing this too loud…
I’m kicking myself for not seeing this band live yet. They’ve played at JARR Bar (which is only a block from my humble abode, but I’ve missed them every time they’re there). I really need to make an effort.
