RIDDLEBREAK - To Release New Single "The Hog" On 6 March

Hot on the heels of their recent video release for “Allegiant”, South Africa’s Riddlebreak will release their new single The Hog on Friday, 6 March 2020.

Jade Osner (Vocals) states that "the Song is about the Hedgehog (Erinaceinae), a tiny unassuming creature that is the embodiment of purest rage and destruction. Everybody, despite appearance, personality and what people assume they are capable of, has the potential to do astonishing and amazing things. All they need do is look deep inside themselves and channel their own inner "Hog”.

Riddlebreak again worked with the epic Chris Valentine on the artwork and you can see the evolution of the concept in the video from David Devo Oosthuizen on the web link below.

Riddlebreak calls the dark void somewhere between Pretoria and Johannesburg (South Africa) their home. Since its original inception ten years ago, it has taken four member changes as well as two shifts in musical orbit to bring this current collective of weirdos together - and they have been inseparable since. Over the last 7 years they have snowballed to break minds, sub-genres and necks. It is difficult to put Riddlebreak in a box because the sound of an injured bear hurtling through space is not considered a genre in most circles.

Since its birth, the music has forged a trajectory within metal, remaining close to its progressive and metalcore neighbours. They draw inspiration from many curiosities, from hedgehogs to collapsing stars - always searching and exploring. Riddlebreak tests constructs, whether it be society, gender stereotypes, gravity or what constitutes the perfect potato salad. Their ever-contrasting ideas and sounds make Riddlebreak difficult to compartmentalise but impossible to ignore.
