After releasing the Euro-braggadocio anthem Monnaie last October (recorded at Grande Ville Studio in Paris), Dead Obies is back with a new ear worm called BREAK. The single is accompanied by a video directed by Martin C. Pariseau, in which we find the group enjoying a writing retreat in rural Quebec. The video immortalizes the five members’ day-to-day life while they go through the creative process for their upcoming album.
BREAK is the first in a mini series of singles that Dead Obies will unleash before releasing their third full-length in winter 2019. The album follows Gesamtkunstwerk (2016), a real stepping stone for the band who went on to perform a string of sold-out shows across Quebec and tour Europe a couple of times. BREAK also marks the beginning of a new era for the Polaris Long-Listed group since the recent departure of Yes Mccan, who will be focusing on his solo career.
The four MCs Snail Kid, 20some, Joe Rocca and OG, along with producer VNCE CARTER, have been working on new material for the past few months. They will be back on stage several times this summer, starting this Friday, May 18th in Gatineau and Sunday, May 20th at the Santa Teresa festival.
