23 Days to Bonnaroo: Die Antwoord

Since the fearsome threesome just released a new video for the song “Pitbull Terrier,” now seems like a good time to tackle this South African beast. Enjoy.

Bonnaroo Tip of the Day: Just because you don’t hear any music coming from the Silent Disco, that doesn’t necessarily mean there’s nothing going on.

The most fitting way I can find to describe everything Die Antwoord: fucked up shit! However, this is not an insult. In fact, I think Die Antwoord would be offended if I called them anything less explicit. Die Antwoord is a South African rap-rave collective whose debaucherous, and that’s putting it lightly, themes and hard beats have built them a surprisingly large following in the US. They’ve released two albums thus far, $O$ and Ten$ion, and their third album Donker Mag is scheduled to be drop on June 3.

I will definitely be seeing Die Antwoord live. Actually, I have no other choice. My girlfriend is dying to see Yo-Landi Vi$$er, the group’s Fergie with more meth. But just because I have no say in whether or not I’m seeing going to see them, that doesn’t mean I’m not excited. “In fact, I don’t know if I’m more scared or aroused.” – Allie Warhol
