Sage Francis + B.Dolan = EPIC BEARD MEN!

“Season 1”, the first official EP from EPIC BEARD MEN has arrived!
And… it’s FREE!
(Free to download here, that is. If you’d like to support by copping a CD/Vinyl LP/Cassette here – 5 hearts to you, StrangeFam!)

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.

Arriving with a playable, Streets of Rage-style web game to accompany it’s 16-bit funk 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 infectious production from Le Parasite, killing it in 2-player mode while reminiscing on a childhood wasted playing ‘goddamn video games’ and an adulthood with too few magical lakes. By the time the track shifts into full chiptune mode and bags another castle, the newly-minted duo have changed the high score. FILL HER UP!
