Indie-rap powerhouses SAGE FRANCIS & B. DOLAN have united to become the "EPIC BEARD MEN" a lyric heavy, stage-smashing super duo hailing from the industrial outskirts of PROVIDENCE, RI. Catch EPIC BEARD MEN in the US this Spring, backed by the turntable wizardry of SoCal's DJ ZOLE (Four Finger Ring, Project Blowed) supporting their debut LP, releasing on STRANGE FAMOUS RECORDS in March 2019.
After a decade of sharing stages and crafting collaborations in the studio, real-life rap BFFs SAGE
FRANCIS and B. DOLAN have finally caved to years of fan pressure to form an official group: EPIC
BEARD MEN. The super-duo embraced the absurd name as a reminder to themselves that, while they
tackle a lot of difficult subject matter in their solo work, this group’s mission boils down to one thing: “This
was supposed to be fun, for fuck’s sake.”
For well over a
decade, no matter how many tours they survived or solo releases they dropped — more than 20
between the two, depending how you count ‘em — the members of this dream team and their DIY
Econoline ethic endured a certain outsider status in the rap world. Last year’s debut EP, Season 1,
poked fun at that label, while still delivering a sublime buckshot blast of political commentary,
interpersonal dispatches, and healthy introspection. Now the joke isn’t so funny anymore.
The mighty Epic Beard Men are back in the barber chair,
fuckin’ up your market share. You can’t tell them shit. The chill is gone. The chill was never here.
