Will we see the end of Die Antwoord in 2017?

Last September, Exclaim! published an interview with Die Antwoord vocalist Ninja.  The title declared “Die Antwoord Confirm That They Will Disband in 2017: ‘Die Antwoord Dies on That Day.’ 

The following day, Yolandi Visser, the second half of the duo rap group, posted a message on her Instagram.  Refuting the journalist’s sensationalist claims, she said,

“DIE ANTWOORD IS NOT BREAKING UP.

The journalist “Daryl Keating” who wrote an article yesterday that we were breaking up totally twisted our words… [and] took what we said completely out of context.  This is a lie.  Daryl sucks.”

In the original interview, Ninja said that the group would break up in September 2017.

“Die Antwoord dies on that day.  It’s all over.  I feel beautiful about it.  I’m not scared of the end.  I’m a Ninja [and] I’m not scared of death.”

Yolandi Visser clarified that Ninja only spoke about the group’s “5th final DA album.”  However, the Visser’s confusing word choice only fueled break-up rumors.

Now, adding more speculation over a possible break-up, Pitchfork has posted a new article.  Dubbed The Book of Zef, writers Noah Yoo and Jazz Monroe claim that this will be the group’s “final” album.

The Book of Zef is a follow-up to last year’s Mount Ninji and Da Nice Time Kid.  Along with the news, the group released a music video for the lead track ‘Love Drug.’

Die Antwoord also announced their new world tour.  You can check out the complete tour dates below.
