one of Quebec’s most compelling live acts Erik Leijon, Montreal Gazette

Dead Obies are quite simply the best hip hop that’s ever existed in Quebec, period. I just don’t think there’s anyone as good as them. VNCE, the beat-maker of the Dead Obies, is as good as any beat-maker in the world. Laurent Saulnier, FrancoFolies de Montréal

un concert tendu, d’une redoutable précision, où la parole circulait entre les cinq MC comme un ballon diabolique sur un playground de basket.

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 recently unveiled Run Away, the first single off their upcoming third studio album, DEAD., to be released on February 15th, 2019 via Bonsound.

After taking a few months off, Dead Obies are back with Run Away, the first single off their upcoming third studio album, DEAD., to be released on February 15th, 2019 via Bonsound. Run Away is a return to our initial instincts with a more solemn perspective in the lyrics that reflects our current state of mind, explain Dead Obies. On the new track, producer VNCE CARTER’s arrangements compliment the 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.

Run Away is accompanied by a video, directed by Romain F. Dubois, which follows a teenager who refuses to return home. The single is out now on all music platforms.

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’ upcoming 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 recently unveiled a clip for Run Away, the first single off their upcoming third studio album, DEAD., to be released on February 15th, 2019 via Bonsound.
