Hailing all the way from the depths of Pretoria, South Africa, Juggernauht are a quintessential example of rare and exhilirating rock music.
Avoiding the limitations of being labelled as one specific musical sub-genre, the band sees themselves as a rock band with a huge range of influences from blues, jazz, funk and metal. Since their inception, Juggernaught have performed non-stop throughout South Africa, Namibia, Mozambique and Botswana, from small local shows to huge festivals including Oppikoppi and Ramfest.
Prior to the band's formation in 2007, Juggernaught's members had a colourful history of playing in other bands from a variety of different musical scenes. Juggernaught's frontman and guitarist Herman Le Roux was in metal band Shadowlord in the '90's while Jovan Tutunovic (guitar) and Alexis Schofield (drums) grew up around South Africa's hardcore punk scene before moving to the UK to form groove metal band Hellbent and Hammered. Clint Falconer comes from a rock and Jazz backround and is also the bassist for Dan Patlansky.
Juggernaught released their first demo in 2007 entitled Vol. 1, followed shortly thereafter by 2008's debut full-length album Act of Goat. 2011 saw the band release Brown Pleather, which was a set of previously-unreleased tracks including three demo versions of tracks that later appeared on their 2012 sophomore album Bring The Meat Back.
2016 is the year of the album "Full Grown Woman"
Considered by critics to be the band's finest work to date. Full Grown Woman sees the band seriously coming into their own.
with a new album and plans for an international tour in the works, Juggernaught are an enticingly unique band.
