Expect to hear the band’s well-known repertoire as you have never heard it before plus exclusive new material.

Present day, 2020. Mankind has suffered incredible losses, global economies have fallen, governments have been abolished, cities have been abandoned as those seeking refuge away from main centers try and rebuild a sense of community in the ruins of the outlying wastelands. With emotive resources now facing dire scarcity, one such faction, TRUTH & ITS BURDEN have reinforced stability and structure in the region. Bringing forth hope for a future, hope for restoration, hope from the ashes of the hell we’ve all been condemned to. This is mankind, living through hell, a theatrical turmoil brought to life through light, sound, motion and stage.

Tickets are R80 and available on HERE



Over a decade ago, Truth & Its Burden immersed themselves in a thriving metal scene. The idea was simple enough: delivering a message of hope and positivity out of the ashes of friction, adversity and dreams reshaped and redrawn. Their drive, purpose and urgency mark them out as something special, something more than a creative flash in the pan.

Overseeing a career filled with preeminent highs and intense lows, Truth & Its Burden have embraced and enjoyed some of the world’s finest festivals, countless shows, and undertaken extensive touring throughout South Africa, Europe, UK and the US. Against a backdrop of adversity that very few touring outfits ever experience, on their own steam and with almost no label support, they have forged a space in which to exist. Prolonged adversity can permanently fracture bands. But, for Truth and its Burden, it has created a steeled determination and a street-smart grit, remaining a staple in the heavy music scene.

A palpable sense of passion for creativity and performance seeps throughout Truth & Its Burden’s discography, spanning a string of EP’s and 3 full length releases. Their most recent offering, I Labour, delivers a huge shift in sonic adventurism and evolution, production value and energy. I Labour is their most accomplished work to date and exists as their pinnacle, their revolution, a successful navigation of the wild and tumultuous waters they sail.
