THE TALE OF THE BARCODE BANDITS STARTS IN 2012, WHERE THREE VERY DIFFERENT MUSICIANS FUSED TO FORM THIS INCREDIBLE 3 PIECE ROCK ACT.
They are dedicated to breaking away from the world’s issues and walking their own path.
They are the bandits of the barcode system that society follows each and every day. Even though it’s a simple three-piece band, the powerful rock still oozes out of each and every song they perform. You can expect to hear influences from Nirvana, Rage Against the Machine, The Sums, Led Zeplin and many more of the greats of rock music.
The passion for playing music has been the best medium for them to express their views and feelings. You would be forgiven for thinking that this is a young band just starting up, but each member brings a lot of experience from past projects. They are very familiar with the Gauteng’s music scene and are rapidly increasing their fan base with every gig they perform.
The last couple of years the band started to focus on getting their music on every fm and online radio station, local and abroad. Some of their singles like ‘Burry Me’ did amazing on NBT Music radio in Germany, also ‘Shut your mouth’ had record 40 week status at no 1 on Zone Radio and ‘Let It Go’has had great response on TUKS FM to name a few. Please check in at the next gig and become an instant fan and friend of the band.
