Welcome to the dual natures that exist within the SKIP&DIE universe; filled with cosmic psychedelia, metamorphic body shaking, socio-political undertones and an infinite opposition to the status quo. Their debut album “Riots in the Jungle” was recorded on a transdisciplinary trip through  South Africa (lead singer Cata.Pirata’s homeland) and then finalized in the electronic valhalla of Amsterdam.

SKIP&DIE pursue their irresistible ascent

and bring their wild (political) party spirit to festival stages all across Europe

After their superb shows at Bourges, Brussels (Botanique) & Berlin, the mighty combo fronted by South African vocalist/visual artist Cata.Pirata is embarking on a new leg of their tour, which includes dates at major festivals such as The Great Escape (GB), Art Rock, Musiques Metisses and Europavox (FR), Sonar (ES), Solidays and Vieilles Charrues (FR), Parkpop (NL), Paleo (CH), Pohoda (SK), Esperanzah (BE), Sziget (HU) and more.

A special edition of the band's album "Riots in the Jungle" will be coming out in June. It will include two tracks from their deleted 1st single ("Muti Murder" and "Get Your Braai On", which originally came out digitally in 2011, on Dutch electronic music label Bmkltsch, and are still two highlights of their live set), and well as a previously- unreleased track, "Zumzuma". This edition will be available on vinyl (limited 2LP edition) and as a CD with a bonus DVD also including the three SKIP&DIE videos.

Meanwhile, the glowing review of the band's show at Nuits Botanique (BE) in French daily Libération can be found here (and the band's videos are also accessible from that page).
