Cape Town, this is your chance to see what Oppikoppi BewilderBeast Festival is all about, Deftones and Yellowcard on one stage for one night!
Since their inception, Grammy Award-winning alternative hard rockband Deftones have quietly been pursuing two paths, delivering songs defined by churning, double-fisted aggression while also quietly testing the boundaries of music by incorporating elements of psychedelia and shoegaze. “White Pony”, released in 2000, reached platinum status a month after release. This album earned raves for blending the moodiness of bands like the Cure and Slowdive.
Getting an opportunity to make an impact by playing music is a dream for many bands, but getting a second chance, according to Yellowcard frontman Ryan Key, is a blessing.Yellowcard, is known for the hit single “Way Away” from the album “Ocean Avenue”. In 2011 this pop punk / alternative rock band returned to the spotlight after a three‐year hiatus releasing the energized“When You’re Through Thinking, Say Yes”. The album was a renaissance of sorts for the Jacksonville natives, as its 10 tracks played like the band never spent any time apart.A logical progression from 2007s “Paper Walls”, the group managed to capture elements of its entire discography with the album, which was welcomed by patient fans and praised by critics alike.
