In a small, secluded mining town in rural South Africa, three friends heard the call of the void, and spat fuzz back at it. Thus, RUFF MAJIK was born, and the adventure of sex, drugs and mostly rock ‘n roll began.
RUFF MAJIK set sail to Pretoria, South Africa, where they’ve become infamous for their lively shows and aggressive stage persona. With their brand of what they call “stoner rock/sludge ‘n roll” they move between slow grooves and breakneck speeds in the blink of an eye, with live shows being described as ‘whiplash inducing’. The band surfaced in 2015 with the release of their first 6 track, The Bear. This got them lots of attention from reviewers all over the world. They quickly followed up with The Fox in 2016, that got them into Classic Rock Magazine.
In 2017 RUFF MAJIK released The Swan, which showcased a heavier sound and a whole new side of the band. Quickly after, the band released the 12 track album "Seasons", before going on their first ever European tour. The tour saw them joining forces with the likes of The Devil And The Almighty Blues, Colour Haze, My Sleeping Karma and more for their first taste of international audiences. After this, the band set their heads on returning as soon as possible to bring more carnage to Europe.
Early in 2019, RUFF MAJIK released the album Tarn, and announced their plans for world domination with the news that they were making Germany their permanent home. They kicked their stay off with a few festivals, including Sonic Whip, Smoke Over Warsaw and Rock In Bourlon. RUFF MAJIK is a power trio, a stoner juggernaut, and they bring good times with them wherever they go. Their creed is simple - death to false music.
