South African rock group's first full-length album drops September 8!
I am really thrilled to share that BLK JKS will finally be releasing After Robots in about a week. You can pre-order it here. In its review of the album, the Johannesburg Mail & Guardian says that "After Robots is probably the most important South
African album to have appeared in the past 20 years." Having seen them twice this year, I know these guys are good. If the album lives up to the hype, they'll be outta here.
Of course, the band will tour in support of the new album and here are the initial dates:
09/08/09 New York, NY – SOB’s
09/18/09 Urbana, IL – Canopy Club
09/19/09 Madison, WI – Orpheum Theater-Stage Door
