Once upon a time, CKY burned it all down, with a raucous, anarchic, hard rock sound soaked in the skate-punk culture that birthed them and a hard-partying lifestyle onstage and off that decimated relationships and reputations in its wake. Now, CKY rises from the ashes of the aftermath with ‘The Phoenix’, a bold mission statement that hoists the flag high for big, raw, authentic, earth-shaking rock n’ roll – and they’re bringing all that and more to South Africa this year!
Chad I Ginsburg, the band’s guitarist and singer, steps into the frontman role with charisma, charm, and bravado, confidently delivering diverse performances as he claimed a position that was clearly rightfully his to own.
He’s joined in enduring partnership and musical chemistry by fellow CKY cofounder, Jess Margera (Bam Margera’s brother), the drummer whose extracurricular work in projects like The Company Band (with guys from Clutch and Fireball Ministry) expanded CKY’s horizons as much as Ginsburg’s solo work has as well. The duo has now returned to their primary project refreshed and reenergized, with bassist Matt Deis (ex-All That Remains), who first joined CKY in 2005.
Guns N’ Roses, Metallica, and Deftones have all personally invited CKY on tour, cementing their legacy as a hard-charging live act. CKY has built a worldwide fanbase of dedicated acolytes, friends, and supporters lovingly dubbed the CKY Alliance.
The band will head to South Africa this October/November for three bewitching Halloween shows in Pretoria, Johannesburg and Cape Town. View all event and ticket details below and follow CKY on Facebook for more information and to discover their music.
