The Speed Of Dark ......... PEST004 2014 PESTROY
Pestroy mark 15yr anniversary with the release of their new album - 'Speed of Dark - Part 1'Pestroy have been spreading the word and fighting the good fight for fifteen years, and remain one of the main pillars in the South African alternative music scene and "Kings of the Underground".
In a country starved of international attention, particularly in the alternative music genre, Pestroy have stepped up to the plate and have become the de-facto flag bearers of the home grown scene, giving local fans something to hang their hat on.
They've toured the entire country numerous times, played headline slots at all the major S.A. festivals and have played just about every conceivable venue in South Africa. They have performed alongside international acts such as Bring Me The Horizon, Pennywise, In Flames, Metallica, Every Time I Die, Pendulum, Enter Shikari, Rise Against, Funeral For a Friend, Alkaline Trio, Haste The Day, Blindside, Entombed, Dieselboy, Horse the Band and Deftones.
It's total entropy at a Pestroy gig. Their live performance has become legendary. Pestroy's stage presence, razor sharp sound and airtight technical prowess make them an event-organizers dream, or nightmare if you're trying to maintain a calm silence.
2013 marks a landmark in any bands career - surviving 15 years. To mark the date, Pestroy launched their new album at OppiKoppi Bewilderbeast. Speed of Dark will be released in two parts with the first single - 'The Flaw' being available for free download on the band's Soundcloud page. In conjunction with the first half of the album, the band has released never seen before images, footage, interviews and designs onto a limited edition USB which can be purchased through the bands Facebook page or at live shows.
