Great News! American Rockers Latex Grenade will be hitting South African shores this week for their second visit and tour to our country.
They first toured South Africa in 2018 when they supported the Springbok Nude Girls on their Beautiful Evolution Tour. This time round they will be performing with Johannesburg based rock band, Oooth.
Latex Grenade Guitarist & Vocalist Geoff Davis comments
“Last time we visited South Africa, we thought it was a beautiful country, and found it to be culturally similar to San Diego in many ways. South Africans are awesome; they rock hard and always support the bands through buying their music and merchandise. That is a great thing to see as the support out in California is lacking in comparison.”
The band have released four studio albums and is a band that brings great passion and energy to the stage. Attracting the adrenaline seekers in action sports, this power trio inspires the listener through fast upbeat melodies and highly energetic vocals.
Their latest album, The Cage, tackles very topical concepts of the day, speaking out to what the band believes in with a bold message.
Upon the release of their album, FDR Part 1 in 2013, Latex Grenade took off on their first national tour. They played at SXSW Austin and headlined the Winter Snow Show with FM94/9 at Bear Mountain. Since then the band has embarked upon 3 national tours. They’ve played in more than 27 US states and they’ve undertaken 2 international tours.
San Diego Citybeat says
“Latex Grenade’s music is straight forward Pennywise-style punk melodies roughed up with some thrash metal riffs”.
Latex Grenade had the following comments about their upcoming tour:
“We found South Africa to be highly receptive to our music, and we met such great people along the way and made friends for life. We can’t wait to rock out with our fellow South Africans! Every show on the last your was an incredible time, or shall we say it was LEKKER!”
