Cremona, Italy: death metal band Pulvis Et Umbra will return to South Africa late this year to perform two headlining shows after supporting Poland’s Behemoth in Johannesburg, South Africa in April. The tour will include a return to the Northern province of Gauteng with a show at Arcade Empire in Pretoria on 10 December, but first stopping off for a visit to the Southern coastal city of Cape Town for a show at ROAR on 08 December.
“The day after our gig at Bassline with Behemoth, I stated that I’ll try my best to bring the band again to play for this awesome crowd. I got a lot of South African friends on twitter and Derrick from DevilSpeak helped us to book the Cape Town event, so my main ‘DANKIE’ goes to him and his band.” ~ Damy Mojitodka (vocals, Pulvis Et Umbra)
“I grew up in the underground scene and I perfectly know that several times ticket entry or similar bullshit could be expensive for people.” ~ Damy Mojitodka
He also told us about some further friendships and collaborations which have manifest since the last visit to South Africa, extending his thanks to South African artist Tanya E Art for the tour design. Furthermore, just released is a new track from Pulvis Et Umbra featuring none other than Lilitu from Theatre Runs Red sharing dual vocals, titled ‘Crows Belong To Her’. This makes up the title track of an EP which will be released whilst on tour in South Africa.
Joining Pulvis Et Umbra as support in Cape Town will be DevilSpeak and Junkyard Lipstick, and in Gauteng a massive line-up at the suitably titled Arcadextreme Festival includes Theatre Runs Red, Bleeding Spawn, Bloodbeast, Spectral Realm, My Columbine and Forsaken Fortress. The Gauteng show will also include a painting exhibition by Tanya E Art.
