The ever prolific Fokofpolisiekar are certainly delivering the goods this year. The band successfully launched the Antibiotika India Pale Ale in March – we had a taste of it, and it tasted like we were in the middle of the band busting out killer tunes in a packed crowd! Not waiting on anyone, Fokofpolisiekar are heading for New Zealand and will release the Hemel op die Platteland Amber Ale at the end of May, and July will see the release of the Monoloog in Stereo EP vinyl.

Hemel op die Platteland Amber Ale (Rooibos infused) coming to your fridge soon…

Fokofpolisiekar will release their third craft beer in a series of four on the 26th of May. Hemel op die Platteland Amber Ale, which can be ordered right here, along with Dagdronk Blonde Ale and Antibiotika India Pale Ale that are already on sale.

Hemel Op Die Platteland Amber Ale is infused with Rooibos which makes for a unique and refreshing tasting experience.

Beer lovers can look forward to the release of Skyn(Heilig) Weiss beer in September.

Fokofpolisiekar rocking New Zealand

A thing of beauty – Monoloog in Stereo vinyl

On 23 May 2005, JIP Volksblad announced Fokofpolisiekar’s plans to hit the studio to record the Monoloog in Stereo acoustic EP.

Fokofpolisiekar took a chance and recorded an EP way different from their previous two releases: As Jy Met Vuur Speel Sal Jy Brand and Lugsteuring. The mostly acoustic driven sound proved to be a hit and showcased the bands diversity from their previous punk rock sound.

Ten years later Fokofpolisiekar will be commemorating a decade of the Monoloog in Stereo by releasing a limited edition vinyl reproduction of the classic EP in July 2015. The vinyl will be available at shows and from Fokofpolisiekar’s website. AND they’re also heading on a great tour – Hemel op die Platteland tour!
