Cape Town - Fokofpolisiekar’s highly anticipated album, Selfmedikasie (Self-medication) is officially out exclusively on iTunes, Apple Music and in stores.
 
Die Bende has once again produced a timeless album with a revitalised Fokofpolisiekar sound that sticks and makes their listeners feel.  The lyrics are profound, introspective and questioning of its personal and socio-political landscape.
 
With this project, Fokofpolisiekar tried to capture the spirit of the music that influenced them when they were teenagers.
 
Earlier this year the band famously raised over a R1m with the help of their most loyal fans to fund the production of Selfmedikasie.  Their motto has always been "Passion. Liberation. Independence." That is why it was Fokofpolisiekar’s mission from the outset to release Selfmedikasie 100% independently, free from any investor or record label interference. 
 
Selfmedikasie was entirely self-produced and recorded at Fokofpolisiekar’s guitarist, Johnny de Ridder’s studio in the Northern Suburbs of Cape Town. The design work is done by one of the band’s closest friends, the artist Marchand.
 
Selfmedikasie is an album that will have fans passionately singing along for years to come and the perfect snap-shot of where Fokofpolisiekar find themselves now.
 
Check out the lyric video for the first track on the album – Dis in my bloed, baby (It’s in my blood, baby):

This album will be best enjoyed with earphones on or blasting through your sound system at full volume while browsing through the spectacular 32-page CD booklet. The booklet includes all the lyrics and every track has a custom artwork by the artist Marchand.

The 12" vinyl is also a stunning package with beautiful spot varnish finishes and is limited to 500 units. It is available from the band’s online store.
