Nominated for Album of the Year – Hip-hop and Album of the Year – Critics’ Choice at this year’s L’Autre Gala de L’ADISQ, Montréal $ud by Dead Obies is now available on CD in stores and on their bandcamp. First released on vinyl and in digital format in November of 2013, the post-rap band’s debut album also made it onto the 2014 Polaris Music Prize Long List.
To mark Montréal $ud’s first anniversary, Dead Obies will release on Wednesday, November 12th a book of the same title, designed to be a companion to the album. In addition to a glossary of terms used by the band, the book talks about the Dead Obies’ journey and the production of Montréal $ud, while dissecting the lyrics of the album’s 17 songs.
Having won a cash prize awarded by CKOI 96.9 for the best showcase at the 2014 Rendez-vous Pros des Francos, Dead Obies will be off to conquer France in December, where they will perform in seven cities, including Paris and Rennes (at the Trans Musicales).
