Star Scene: Johni Holiday ~ RUFF MAJIK

What’s My Scene magazine talks to Johni Holiday of RUFF MAJIK about their latest album, The Devil’s Cattle, and about the possibility of an Australian tour.

South African Stoner Rockers Release Video For Gregory
New Album, The Devil’s Cattle Out Now!
South African powerhouse Ruff Majik have shared the lyric video for the track Gregory.

Taken from the band’s latest full length album The Devils Cattle, the track is a fuzzed-out bass driven sonic dirge about addiction as vocalist and guitarist Johni Holiday explains, “This one is about a good friend and his struggle with addiction. People can fill in the blanks if they want to, or just ignore the lyrics and enjoy the bass line.”


The Devil’s Cattle is the highly anticipated, full-length album release from South African rock and rollers Ruff Majik, and the first with their new label Mongrel Records.

The album is a 13-song firecracker filtered through the colorfully twisted lens of lead vocalist, guitarist, and songwriter Johni Holiday and the first to feature producer, multi-instrumentalist, and fellow heavy weight, Evert Snyman.

The Devil’s Cattle is a collection of dystopian hymns and ‘feel good’ apocalyptic jams to shake your hips and bang your head to. Think zombie montages, demonic cabarets, drug fueled car chases, claustrophobic riffs, psychobilly freak-outs and hypnotic duo-toned sonics tightly packed into a highly fluid slice of high-speed rock and roll.

The Devils Cattle now available on 140g vinyl (single gatefold with splattered coloured vinyl and a pull out A2 poster) and Digipak CD via
