Band History

Where It All Began

Since their inception in 2008, South African rock/post-hardcore band Climate Control have been hard at work trying to leave their mark. The band released their full-length album, 'Preludes' in 2013, which has been well received by fans & media alike. 2014's new single "Tidal Wave" shows the band at their most mature & melodic yet.


Having performed at at major festivals in South Africa, such as RAMfest, Krank'd Up Festival, and Seasons Wither, alongside a number of international acts, Climate Control are expanding their reach and working hard to solidify their name alongside their peers.

About Ghosts

Ghosts is an energetic, ponderous song about the concept of leaving a lasting legacy. It raises the questions: Does it all matter in the end? And do we actually leave a worthy mark on people and the world?.
