@ the sky below, How can't you see people from " African " in general rocking out to FFAF?

First off it isnt Africa, its South Africa. They have a huge fan base there. Almost entirely listened to by white south africans. Not sure if you know that metal,rock,punk,indie etc. is fairly large over there in relation to the market size, exposure and isolation. Many international acts have toured so far such as underoath, haste the day, Horse the band, Becoming the archetype, 30 seconds to mars just to name a few... aswell as possible acts already eyeing out possible tours this year like Parkway drive , lamb of god, Darkest Hour, Secret & Whisper, All Shall Perish, August Burns Red etc.

Its the rock/metal capital of Africa

lol i mean probably, and obviously, as they wouldn't tour there if they couldn't sell tickets. just weird i guess. when i think of south africa now, i think of a huge alien ship hovering above johannesburg and alien ghettos.
