Francois van Coke – Album Launch Tour

Francois van Coke – Album Launch Tour

Anticipation is running high leading up to the launch of Francois van Coke’s second solo album, Hierdie is die Lewe, on 2nd February 2017.

Francois has already released two music videos from this album: Mensdom to introduce his band, Die Gevaar, and Klein Prys – his ode to Fokofpolisiekar.  Both of these songs are also available on 7” vinyl from Permanent Record.


This album is the natural progression from his successful and acclaimed self-titled debut album and can be viewed as a snapshot of where Francois is in his life right now.  The sound is similar to the first album and Francois stays introspective.

Francois crafted the songs over time with his band, Die GevaarHierdie is die Lewe was produced by Johnny de Ridder (Fokofpolisiekar guitarist) and Rudolph Willemse (Francois’ bassist) at Soft Light City in Bellville.  The drums were recorded by Jürgen Von Wechmar at the Red Bull Studios in Cape Town.

“I’ve been listening to older pop tunes by Beach Boys and The Beatles and their influences can be heard on my album’s melodies and sound.  There are still a few rock ‘n roll numbers and some ballads,” says Francois.
