Pretoria based rock band 'All This For Nothing' are celebrating 25 years as an ever-evolving riff machine and to celebrate, are hitting all the major cities in South Africa this November and December.
Having largely drawn on progressive, metal and punk rock influences throughout their career, ATFN have crafted a sound proudly their own and will be flying the banner for local label Mongrel Records, who represent the very best in South African metal, alternative, punk and rock bands.
This nationwide tour which kicks off on the 17th November promises an unforgettable experience for fans of the punk rock genre, as ATFN takes the stage at some of South Africa's coolest music venues including Sognage (JHB), JARR Bar (PTA), Daisy Jones Bar (CPT), Armchair Theatre (CPT). Striped Horse (CPT) and Robson’s Real Beer (KZN).
Joining ATFN on this exhilarating journey are some of the best bands that the local scene has to offer, including FUZIGISH, Nomadic Orchestra, West Coast Wolves and Hawema. Each of these powerhouse acts brings their unique flair to the stage, promising a diverse and thrilling lineup that will leave fans begging for more.
ATFN's guitarist, Paul Gioia, expressed the band's excitement about the upcoming tour, stating, "It's been ages since we've played outside of Gauteng and it's the first time since the pandemic that we've been able to get to The Western Cape and KZN. We are so stoked and I think it will be a little surreal.
We're especially excited to get to Durban because we've noticed such an awesome DIY scene thriving there again and for us, KZN has always been super close to our hearts. Our first real "tour" show was back in '99 with Crossing Point and Still Thinking at the Bat Centre and for years after that, places like Burn, The Winnie and the Willowvale were like second homes to us. We learned so much from the Durban bands and have made some genuine life-long friends along the way. DSW for life."
