“Crash Test Dummies get back together now and then when the occasion arises,” says Brad Roberts, the Canadian band’s frontman/lead singer. “I wouldn’t say it aided the band, so much as it has been a natural consequence of getting older: priorities change.”
But luckily, the stars align every now and then and they get to play in South Africa. Like this February, when they’re coming down for two shows: in Cape Town on the 17th, and Pretoria on the 18th. They haven’t released a new album in a while (their last single, I’ll Be Peaceful Then, came out in 2016), and it doesn’t look like that’s gonna change soon.
