Throne for aKing

 Founded back in 2008, Cape Town rock band aKing has been together for 9 years. With five albums to their name, they were awarded the SAMA for Best Rock Album in 2016 for their latest LP, Morning After.

Going on a decade of rocking, they will open the stage for the 80's alternative rockers, The Pixies, in Cape Town and Johannesburg this month. They've shared the spotlight with international acts like Oasis and Snow Patrol, and you will always be guaranteed a tight and entertaining set.

aking was formed when associate act Fokofpolisiekar band member Jaco Venter and former member Hunter Kennedy teamed up with Laudo Liebenberg and Andrew Davenport. The band's first album, Dutch Courage, scored three no 1 singles. We caught up with the guys - Laudo Liebenberg, Jaco Venter, Andrew Davenport, and Hennie Van Halen - on Expresso.
