"Temples of Doom and Self-loathing"

“Columbus have evolved into something confident and contagious. They have a presence on stage, with the band looking down on the throbbing, thrashing crowd like they know, better than ever before, exactly what they're doing and why. The music’s bloody good, too.” - Nas Hoosen


“If you want to follow the next big band to come out of Johannesburg, then Columbus is the one. Do it minions!” - Mark Wright


Demo - produced by Dan Patlansky
EP - self-titled - recorded at Analog Binary Studios
Singles - Midnight Mindwave (radio and streaming)



Columbus was created in early 2010 with the intention of making a solid and lasting impact on the SA music industry. So far, so good! In the short time they have been together the band has played alongside SA's top bands at SA's top venues. This rapid success is a direct result of passionate band members and a solid, in-tune fanbase. Silky lead-guitar, a grooving rhythm section and catchy vocals galvanise to create something unique to the scene.
We have played alongside bands such as: Tidal Waves, Ashtray Electric, Isochronous, Fire through the Window, Shadowclub, The Pretty Blue Guns, Wrestlerish and many more.
Our musical influences range from Queens of the Stone Age, Kasabian, Interpol and Bloc Party to Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan and The Weather Report.
