PHFAT are South Africa’s biggest independent rap group and are teeing up to hit Australia with a self-funded tour in May, playing clubs and venues to promote their new single ‘Lights Out’ featuring JungFreud.
In the two years that PHFAT has been a full time rap act they have played at just about every established alternative music festival in South Africa and scored opening slots for international pioneers such as Public Enemy and Post Hardcore/Rock forerunners like The Used.
Whilst all of this is impressive on paper, PHFAT’s proudest asset is their ability to consistently sell out clubs around South Africa with only their name on the flyer. Multiple play listings on radio stations countrywide for ‘Lights Out’ happened almost instantly.
The single even managed to beat out electronic music giant Skrillex for “Hottest New Track of the week” on South Africa’s largest commercial station 5FM on their #NewFavourite slot. PHFAT plans to make Australia a regular touring destination and are putting in the work with 11 dates across the east coast all throughout May.
