Cape Town, South Africa: Zombies Ate My Girlfriend will play launch shows in Cape Town and Johannesburg to celebrate its recently announced Shun The Reptile album. Whilst Shun The Reptile releases digitally on 02 November, the live launch shows will take place on November the 03rd and 09th in Johannesburg and Cape Town respectively.
“Some of our favourite shows to play are album launches. It’s just different in the way that you can really offer up a proper experience with the set. Most of the time you’re playing events or festivals which usually entail 30-40-minute sets. With this we get to exceed the one-hour mark and really take people on a ride. We’re pretty deep into the rehearsal process already; it’s kind of like the reward for us after the two-month slog of tracking and producing the album.” ~ Adriano Rodrigues (guitar, Zombies Ate My Girlfriend)
Adriano explains how the band also enjoys placing a spin on live performance of tracks, giving the live experience a unique aspect. The current set also will consist largely of new material, but not neglecting some old favourites.
Apart from the South African shows, the international Wacken Metal Battle winner intends to return to Germany in 2019 to reconnect with fans acquired there during the 2016 visit.
