Time for blood brothers to unite

The Citizen (Gauteng) - - CITY -

The rag­tag band of the fourth an­nual Blood Brothers – in Cape Town on September 22 and Pre­to­ria on September 29 – yes­ter­day re­leased the mu­sic video for the 2018 events’ of­fi­cial sin­gle, Al­ways on my Mind.

The song was writ­ten by Hunter Kennedy, who joined the com­pany of rock roy­alty this year by lend­ing his pen to write a #BB2018 song to make sure the shows live on in your playlist long af­ter the per­for­mances have ended.

The video for the sin­gle is a mo­tion graphic lyric video which lets the viewer move into a poster wall.

The video, fea­tur­ing a colour­ful grunge feel, was de­signed by Merwe Marc­hand and an­i­mated by Bewil­der.tv in Cape Town.

This year, Blood Brothers fans can look for­ward to some­thing com­pletely dif­fer­ent from pre­vi­ous edi­tions.

Fran­cois van Coke, Hanu De Jong, Ja­son Oosthuizen, Jaco Mans and Chris Van Der Walt will welcome Laudo Lieben­berg, as well as South African rock roy­alty Ard Matthews, pic­tured, Jedd Kossew and song­writer Adelle Nqeto to the event. Also join­ing the shows is The Hell­cats’ Alle­san­dro Benigno and War­wick Raut­en­bach.

Ex­pe­ri­ence the rare op­por­tu­nity to wit­ness 11 of South Africa’s best lo­cal rock stars to­gether on one stage for three hours of non-stop rock ’n roll.

To­gether with The Vrede Foun­da­tion, the show aims to help fight and gen­er­ate aware­ness re­gard­ing can­cer and raise funds to pro­vide fi­nan­cial aid to young South Africans with can­cer.

This year, this for­mi­da­ble heroic force will also be on stage in Pre­to­ria and Cape Town, per­form­ing the songs that brought each of them to fame, in­ter­twined with songs that in­flu­enced their sound over the years.
