Due to public demand, Francois Van Coke will collaborate with Die Heuwels Fantasties, The Sweet Resistance and will perform with his own band, Die Gevaar, in Rock in my Taal, the Afrikaans rock event of the year!
Francois van Coke kicked off his solo career with a bang with the launch of his self-titled debut solo album in April of 2015. What followed can only be described as a year of unbounded success with numerous number ones, sold out shows, awards and shattered records left in its wake.
During his 13 year career as lead singer of various Afrikaans rock bands, he has released 9 full length albums, 3 extended plays and collaborated with likes of Jack Parow, Die Antwoord, Die Heuwels Fantasties, Seether (Shaun Morgan) and Karen Zoid.
He has received 4 SAMA awards and multiple other prolific awards. After releasing the self-titled album Francois van Coke in 2015, Francois van Coke returns with his second studio album Hierdie Is Die Lewe, which was released on 02 February this year.
Francois says that “the recording of the second album is already going smoother than the first one. I’m working with my band, Die Gevaar, on all the tracks. They had a bigger hand in the writing process this time round. We are taking things slow so that we have more than enough time to make something fantastic.”
