Die Antwoord Return with New Single "Love Drug," Add Canadian Dates to World Tour
Published May 05, 2017Despite denying reports of an imminent breakup last year, Die Antwoord are set to deliver what they are now calling "their final album" this year with The Book of Zef. Before it arrives, though, the duo have shared the album's first single in "Love Drug."
The song, which can be heard in a lyric video below, also serves as the namesake for their upcoming "Love Drug World Tour 2017," which kicks off this month. While the bulk of the current dates will find the two playing a slew of festivals in Europe, they will play Canada late this summer as well.
The duo will play Vancouver's Doug Mitchell Thunderbird Sports Centre on August 27 before travelling to Edmonton and Calgary for performances on August 29 and 30, respectively. Of course, they'll also take the stage at Osheaga in Montreal earlier this summer on August 4.
