These little piggies got their big break outside of the local scene… See what Boargazm had to say ahead of their performance at Emalyth Art Expo: Nine Lives.

As you are playing the Emalyth Arts Expo: Nine Lives let me ask; what is ‘art’ to you? What does it mean and why do we need it?

Art is a way of translating our perspective of the universe onto a specific medium. We need art to inspire us. To become something more than a cog in a machine…


Tell us how things went down with your tour in South America?

It was absolutely hamtastic! Brazil is a lot like South Africa in various ways. Only bigger, with way more people. The response was amazing. We worked very hard, did 9 shows in 10 days, but we had the time of our lives. We’re definitely going back.14468549_1086257278161720_8711618043073722555_o


How did the tour in South America turn into a reality? 

In 2015 we toured Latvia, Estonia, and Russia with Enthroned and Nervo Chaos. It was a really great tour. We got along very well with the guys from Nervo Chaos. So we invited them to South Africa in 2016. These guys tour their asses of, a real inspiration. They did 10 shows in SA, and they invited us to Brazil to return the favour. Now we just have to keep on rollin’… 


Where are you setting your sights in terms of touring for 2017? 

We’re planning to do Europe, or Quito, or anywhere that will have us. We’re just trying to cover territory. We’re mailing and calling all the promoters we know. Until then we’ll keep our backyard clean and head through SA. Hook up with some bras’ and just keep fighting the good fight. 



What can we expect at the Emalyth Arts Expo: Nine Lives show from the band?

We’re going to be doing our crazy antics and groove it away. We might have a new song… 


Lastly, what new releases/singles can we expect from Boargasm? 

We are currently in studio and we’re tracking Armagammon. It will be the third installation to the Trilogy (Aporkalypse, The Baconing, Armagammon). We’ve got very interesting sounds and music heading your way.

Who is most likely to forget their music notes/lyrics?

Depends on who had the most to drink.


Tell us about one embarrassing moment in the band’s career so far?

Let’s just say we’ve been as happy as a pig in shit… 😉
