Congrats to Dead Obies who have been nominated in two categories at this year’s L’Autre Gala de l’ADISQ for their debut album, Montréal $ud: Album of the Year – Hip-Hop and Album of the Year – Critic’s Choice.
They’re also nominated in six categories at the GAMIQ: Artist of the Year, Show of the Year, Breakthrough Artist of the Year, Song of the Year (for Montréal $ud), Video of the Year (for Tony Hawk) and Rap Album of the Year (for Montréal $ud). You can vote for them in the first five categories online until October 31st.
Dead Obies Manufacture present their new online boutique featuring socks, caps, tuques, tank tops, t-shirts and crewnecks! Dress like them.
Dead Obies came out on top of the 4th edition of the Rendez-vous Pros des Francos, whose goal is to connect the music industries of Europe and Québec. The boys were offered a $10,000 prize offered by CKOI 96.9, intended to recognize and reward the Québecois artist or band who delivered the best performance during showcases, in order to propel the development of their career on the international stage. Furthermore, they will head to France in December for the Bars en Trans festival!
What an honor for Dead Obies to be among the 40 artists and groups figuring on the Polaris Music Prize long list, revealed last Thursday in Calgary, with Montréal $ud. The boys could eventually make their way on the short list that will be announced on July 15th in Toronto.
Here it is, finally! Throughout the spring, the boys worked hard on Collation Vol. 2 – Limon Verde: La Experiencia, and are proud to premiere the mixtape via Noisey/Vice! Download these 11 new songs for free via bandcamp. Catch them live in Quebec this summer while they quest for Limon Verde. It all starts this Friday, June 20th at Club Soda as part of the FrancoFolies de Montréal. #LEDOIT
