Springbok Nude Girls return with new music and tour

The Springbok Nude Girls are set to return with a brand new single and an accompanying tour.
The band’s first single of 2018, Beautiful Evolution, will only be available on a limited edition signed seven-inch vinyl as well as during the tour, which kicks off at Chicky’s Yard in Port Elizabeth on 26 April 2018.

This vinyl also has Best Friends, Best Enemies on the B-side; only 60 of this vinyl will be made available to the public. The digital release is set for mid-May 2018.

Details about the full-length album will be announced later this year.

The first single, Beautiful Evolution, is a driving anthem that examines the paradox of human progression and hypothesises that to halt mortal degradation one must look to and take lessons from the past.

“It is 10 years after our last album and 20 years since we wrote Blue Eyes; all signs, I guess. With a band like us who have been together for so long... when the feeling takes hold, you go with it. You never know if it’s your last. For us making an album these days is not about relevance or making some inflated statement. It’s about five guys doing what they do best and having too much fun with it. Hopefully, the end result will reflect this,” says lead singer Arno Carstens.

“The vibe I have gathered from this album is that it is unpretentiously light-hearted good fun, riddled with great energy with some punk undertones and, of course, some big Nude Girl classic rock songs,” continues Carstens.
