Van Coke Kartel’s fourth album Wie’s Bang will be released by Supra Familias in November 2011. This album follows in the wake of their three multi-award winning albums: Van Coke Kartel (self-titled), Waaksaam & Wakker and Skop, Skiet en Donner. The last two albums both won SAMA Awards for ”Best Afrikaans Rock” album and the first album received a SAMA nomination in this category.

Wie’s Bang is Van Coke Kartel’s first album with the new four-piece line-up. Jedd Kossew (lead guitar) and Jason Oosthuizen (drums) add their unique musical flavour to complete the band’s best work to date. Award winning producer Theo Crous from Bellville Studios produced the album and calls it “the best sounding album” to come from his studio to date.

Van Coke Kartel will introduce the new album with an extensive tour in November/December 2011.

The Wie`s Bang Tour is sponsored by: Jagermeister, Monster Energy, Macbeth Footwear and Music Connection.

Van Coke Kartel will perform the new tracks at the following upcoming shows as part of the Wie`s Bang launch tour:
