Die Antwoord announce new, and reportedly final, album, ‘The Book Of Zef’

May 09 2017, 11:22 AM EDT By Maggie Dickman


After much supposition around their future—and claiming that they aren’t actually breaking up in 2017—Die Antwoord have announced a new album, The Book Of Zef, which, according to Pitchfork, is reportedly their last.

Check out the lyric video for the record’s first single, “Love Drug,” along with their world tour dates, below!

Last September, in an interview with Exclaim!, Die Antwoord's Ninja said that the group would be breaking up September 2017. "Die Antwoord dies on that day. It's all over. I feel beautiful about it. I'm not scared of the end," he told the media source. "I'm a Ninja. I'm not scared of death."

However, a day later, the second half of the duo, Yolandi Visser, took to Instagram and said that Die Antwoord will not end next year, adding the journalist "twisted" their words.

Visser said in her social media post: "Die Antwoord is not breaking up. The journalist 'Daryl Keating' who wrote an article stating that we are breaking up totally twisted our words an[d] took what we said completely out of content with his latest article."

Die Antwoord’s new record comes after last year’s Mount Ninji And Da Nice Time Kid.
