AboutDead Obies

Dead Obies (4 rappers and 1 producer) released their critically-acclaimed debut album, Montréal $ud, in November 2013. The undeniable success of their sophomore effort, Gesamtkunstwerk (2016), was a real stepping stone for Dead Obies, who performed a string of sold-out gigs across Quebec. Before ending their tour in a jam-packed MTELUS, the band opened for Kendrick Lamar on the Plains of Abraham (Festival d'été de Québec) and for French rapper Georgio at the Olympia de Paris, and performed in the opening concert of the 2016 Francos de Montréal. Dead Obies' third album DEAD. (2019) is a way for the group to close a chapter in their career and being a new one : to die and be reborn.

Dead Obies unveil Doo Wop, the third single off their album DEAD., available now in stores and online. Arguably one of the catchiest song the guys have released to date, Doo Wop showcases each of the four MCs’ (20SOME, Joe Rocca, Ogee Rodman and Snail Kid) distinct style and energy. To go along with the single, the group is also releasing a video directed by Jean-François Sauvé. The colorful images captured by Sauvé perfectly illustrate the playful spirit of the song.

If Doo Wop reveals a new, catchier sound for Dead Obies, André released earlier this winter, is a concise power track that doesn’t let up. VNCE CARTER creates a rowdy, lo-fi production on which each MC delivers stand-out verses amidst ostentatious distortion.

While Run Away, the first single which marked the group's comeback this fall, is a return to our initial instincts, explain Dead Obies. Producer VNCE CARTER’s arrangements add to the track's live instrumentations recorded by Jean-Michel Frédéric (keys) and Mark Alan Haynes (bass). The empowering piano chords round out the 4 MCs’ (Joe Rocca, 20SOME, Snail Kid and Ogee Rodman) fully developed skills.

The 13-date DEAD. Tour kicks off on February 28th, 2019 in Chicoutimi, and culminates in Montreal on April 26th at MTELUS. See dates on deadobies.com.

Dead Obies’ new album follows the Polaris Long-Listed Gesamtkunstwerk (2016), a real stepping stone for the group. They went on to perform a string of sold-out gigs across Quebec and tour Europe. Before ending their tour at a jam-packed MTELUS, Dead Obies opened for Kendrick Lamar on the Plains of Abraham (Festival d'été de Québec) and for French rapper Georgio at the Olympia de Paris, as well as performed in the opening concert of the 2016 Francos de Montréal.

Biography

Dead Obies (four rappers and one producer) released their critically-acclaimed debut album, Montréal $ud, in November 2013 via Bonsound. Long-listed for the Polaris Music Prize, the record helped place the group at the forefront of Quebec's rap scene. The album was also nominated at L'Autre Gala de l’ADISQ in 2014 for Hip-Hop Album of the Year and Critics' Choice Album of the Year.

After large-scale shows, a European tour, the mixtape Collation Vol. 2 - Limon Verde: La Experiencia, the Montréal $ud book and the animated web series 4:20 avec Dead Obies, the band released their sophomore effort, Gesamtkunstwerk, on March 4th, 2016. Recorded partially in studio and partially in front of a live audience during a series of three sold-out concerts at Phi Centre, Gesamtkunstwerk was listed on the Polaris Prize Long List. The single Where They @ has since garnered over 2.5 million streams on Spotify.

The undeniable success of their sophomore effort, Gesamtkunstwerk, was a real stepping stone for Dead Obies, who performed a string of sold-out gigs across Quebec. Following the highly publicized opening concert of the 2016 FrancoFolies de Montréal, the band opened for Kendrick Lamar on the Plains of Abraham (Festival d'été de Québec), and for French rapper Georgio at the Olympia de Paris. Their tour culminated on September 14th, 2017 at Montreal's MTELUS with a sold-out, interactive and immersive concert. Dead Obies' third album DEAD. (2019) is a way for the group to close a chapter in their career and being a new one : to die and be reborn.
