Epic Beard Men
Sage Francis + B.Dolan = EPIC BEARD MEN!
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 is supposed to be fun, for fuck’s sake.”
STRANGE FAMOUS RECORDS released their “WAR ON CHRISTMAS” single for free last December as a teaser of what the team has in store for the new year, and made it crystal clear that these two are not just here to discuss personal grooming; The EPIC BEARD MEN are gunning for a spot among your favorite partnerships in music. The stockpile of songs they’ve been meticulously obsessing over for last 2+ years feature Francis and Dolan tackling a vast array of concepts and trading off some of the most sardonic, punchy, and fun lyrics you’re likely to hear in 2018.
The “SEASON 1” EP contains 8 songs and will be released in late February. The collection is stacked with a signature blend of dusty breaks and absurdist lyrics, infectious grooves and slapping snares, plus the effortless rapport of two of indie rap’s best passing the baton back and forth with the only other emcee capable of running this rap race at such a breakneck pace. 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.
I've been recording and performing as Height since 1998. I added the 'with friends' in 2008 and made it more of a band, and less like a rapper with an anonymous crew. The cast is constantly revolving.
We've released thirteen albums and EP's. Wham City, Friends, Grand Man, Dogg Pony, Aural States and Snowghost Records have all put out our music.
We've played over 500 shows in the US, Canada and Europe. We have toured with Future Islands, Dan Deacon, Beach House, Jana Hunter, Grand Buffet, Adventure, Cex, The Death Set, and Oxes as well as many equally good, but yet lesser known acts.
We tend to keep all the writing and production in-house, but we've also been fortunate to collaborate with artists like Tobacco and Wye Oak.
The music of Height has changed drastically over the years, and it will continue to evolve. The goal is always to make understated, moving music from the heart. We are currently putting the finishing touches on a new full length, due out this summer.
