“We’re always so excited to be out on the road again, and there’s a real sense of freedom and brotherhood that comes together on the long trips.
We have a new bassist Sean, and the TAIB camp is really in high spirits about our live shows and of course the new album. There’s still so much ground to cover on promoting “I Labour” and these tours are what it’s all about – getting it out there and getting people stoked.” – Ashley De Beer, vocals.

Constantly thinking of new ways to cement a positive attitude in the hearts of any person attending their shows or listening to their songs. They’re not just hopefuls waiting for the world around them to evolve into their childhood dreams; They’re inspired, free thinking individuals who have enough self-belief to power up these dreams with hard work and heartfelt dedication.

“Truth And Its Burden have created a solid album with a dynamic range that is unprecedented in their corpus and production that will be the envy of South African and international heavy acts alike. Having started the band in 2007, this album is one hell of a way to celebrate a decade of crushing live shows and positively geared music.” – Metal4Africa
