Epic Beard Men SIGNED Cassette+Extras Pre-Order
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 fan pressure and knotted their facial hair and mic cords together. The result is the EPIC BEARD MEN. The two indie-rap stalwarts have embraced this goddamn absurd name as a reminder to themselves that, while they may tackle a lot of difficult subject matter in their solo work, and the world may be on a runaway course to hell, their group’s Epic mission remains: “This is supposed to be fun, for fuck’s sake.”
Arriving with a playable, Streets of Rage-style web game to accompany it's 16 bit-unk and lyrical savagery, "FIVE HEARTS" is the lead single from "Season 1". The first offering of the year from EBM finds Sage and B over infections production from French producer LE PARASITE, killing it in 2-player mode while reminscing on a childhood wasted playing video games and an adulthood with too few magical lakes. By the time the track shits into chiptune overdrive and bags another castle, the newly minted duo have changed the high schore. FILL HER UP!
EBM’s full-length debut album is slated to drop in October. In the interim, fans can expect videos, remixes, social media meltdowns, and lots...’o...touring.The “SEASON 1” EP contains 8 songs (and 4 previously released bonus joints) and was released in digital and physical form on March 2nd. SEASON 1's musical episodes are stacked with dusty breaks and absurdist lyricism, infectious grooves, crushing production from the likes of ALIAS, REANIMATOR, and CECIL OTTER, and the effortless rapport of two of indie rap’s best passing the baton with the only other emcee capable of running this rap race at such a breakneck pace.
