Truth and its Burden
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.
