NEMESIS ARMY (article first published : 2006-04-13)

The alternative act, Nemesis Army, has embarked on their biggest headlining tour to date, travelling from Johannesburg to Cape Town and their hometown of Durban.

The Nemesis Army (ex Nemesis) of 2006 is the sound of a band that has progressed, evolved and found their musical niche. The sound of a musically experienced and altogether tight alternative rock unit that has grown as a band and as individuals over the last few years.

After the release of their critically acclaimed debut album A lover’s guide to the end of the world Nemesis Army fell into the category of a commercial, radio-friendly group, largely due to the success of their first single Remember the Stars. Although this definitely helped to get the name out and led to numerous radio, TV and magazine interviews and appearances as well as five national tours, the band has never been happy with what they believe is a stigma now attached to them.

Being on the road so much and being thrown into the deep end of the industry was an eye opening experience, and gave them the opportunity to see exactly what not to do. Being the next top 40/flavour of the week band was never a goal for them and so they took a step back and applied the knowledge they had learnt to focusing on what was really important...the music.

With their brand new album And so it comes to this released through Witchdoctor Records in mid November 2005, Nemesis Army have reinvented themselves with an intense, dark and brooding sound while still maintaining that melodic appeal that has always been at the core of the band.

Venues and performance dates in KwaZulu-Natal are: Crowded House – Pietermaritzburg (May 4 to 5); Mojos Blues Bar in Umhlanga (May 5); Red Door – Pietermaritzburg (May 26) and Witchfest –at Burn in Durban (May 27).
