Die Antwoord takes cue from Butcher Boys

2012-01-23 22:38
Cape Town – Die Antwoord has released a teaser trailer to promote their forthcoming album, Ten$ion, which is set to release on February 7.

The video sees the group seemingly referencing South African artist Jane Alexander's most famous piece titled The Butcher Boys. Pale, painted skins, demonic mask-like faces and horned figures allude to the famous work by the prominent resistance artist.

The trailer features Yolandi Vi$$er as a goblin creature with a hankering for fresh heart.

The explicit short video is set to the latest track by Die Antwoord titled I Fink You Freeky, which was released last week.

Ten$ion will be the first record released on their own Zefrecords label after dropping Interscope last year.

      What worries me about this lot is that they may end up adopting their stage persona's for real. Very freaky, I sometimes think they are a bit over the top - I still think Ninja is their best song, more humour than the current anarchic stuff.

    I honestly won't ever support this music. I think that this is a bit satanic. That guy looks exactly like a demon.... just saying!
