Black Rebel Motorcycle Club to headline Synergy Live
1 Nov 2011 10:04
Synergy Live 2011 is back with a killer line-up from 25 to 27 November, 2011, at the Boschendal Wine Estate, Franschhoek Valley, Western Cape. The international main stage headline act will be Black Rebel Motorcycle Club.
Black Rebel Motorcycle Club consists of Peter Hayes on guitar and drums, Robert Levon Been on bass, piano and vocals, and drummer and percussionist Leah Shapiro. "Beat the Devil's Tattoo" is the band's sixth album (released in March, 2010) and was billed as the album that brought back the prodigal sons (and daughter) keeping them ahead of their time. The album sounds vintage, grungy, and dirty.
Blazing the electro stage is the Brazilian duo Marcus, aka Jim, and Eduardo, aka Du, as Dirtyloud. Their jacking, tough yet effortlessly groovy sound has come to define the nu-electro style currently taking the world by storm.
SA's own The Narrow headlines the SA contingent. The band received wide support for their debut album "Self Conscious", which spawned four singles in South Africa. The album was voted best rock album and was nominated for a SAMA. Due to the popularity of "Self Conscious", the band decided to give the album a facelift in September 2005, including tracks that were initially left off the first release. The re-release has now been re-mastered with new artwork, two extra bonus tracks and two music videos of their songs The Banded and Push Up The Level.
The rest of the lineup includes: Isochronous, Desmond and the Tutus, a King, Taxi Violence, Saint Fearless, Brucewillis, Jam Jarr, Riot Squad, PHFAT, and Double Adapter.
