Possessed of a defiant punk zeal, they are seen as unapologetic performers whose two-fisted punch impact - especially in their incendiary live performances - is entertainment as thrilling as that of any other duo that comes to mind.
Look at any review of a Die Antwoord concert and there's one word which keeps cropping up - "incendiary". The South African rave rap duo have built a formidable reputation for their high-energy live performances, which take the no-holds barred spirit of their albums and multiplies it by about a million. Alongside their viral-ready videos (the Lady Gaga pillorying Fatty Boom Boom) its this ferocious commitment to live performance which has elevated the group to its current cult status.
Die Antwoord is formed of Ninja and Yolandi, with the masked DJ-Hi-Tek their unofficial third member. Their music is an vigorous assault on taste and the eardrums, always twisted and frequently hilarious. They are currently gearing up for the release of their third album Donker Mag, which has been in the making for over two years and promises the tantalising prospect of a collaboration with electronic guru Aphex Twin.
The US leg of the tour run through May and June, including an appearance at the Sasquatch music festival. Go to hear their new material and experience their phenomenal show in the flesh.
