This tour will mark our first visit to the US, and we are so excited!” shared VOB collectively. “We can’t wait to meet the Baladceprots over there, who we’ve only been able to exchange messages with on social media. We want to take pictures with the Hollywood sign and see what Madison Square Garden looks like up close! We also want to try a slice of the good ol’ American apple pie we’re used to seeing in films.

Voice Of Baceport (pronounced ‘bah-che-prot’)—Marsya (vocals & guitar), Widi (bass) and Sitti (drums)—will be touring in support of their anticipated debut album RETAS due July 13 via 12WIRED (see cover artwork pictured below). The band recently shared the album’s galvanizing single “The Enemy Of Earth Is You.” Watch its animated lyric video HERE.

The trio, who are all Muslims, sing in English, Bahasa Indonesia and Sundanese, and have faced opposition from conservative Muslims, in their hometown of Garut, West Java due to the unique and contradictory combination of performing Heavy Rock/Metal music and their wearing of the hijab on stage. They have turned heads with previously released singles “School Revolution,” “God, Allow Me (Please) to Play Music,” “[NOT] PUBLIC PROPERTY” and “PMS” which has garnered attention from renowned global media outlets including New York Times, NPR, BBC and The Guardian, in addition to praise from iconic Rock musicians including Flea of Red Hot Chili PeppersTom Morello of Rage Against The Machine, Vernon Reid of Living Colour and Slash who invited them to attend Guns N’ Roses show in Jakarta and met with them backstage. After several years of blood, sweat, and tears, VOB are set to unveil their greatest work yet with their debut RETAS.
