FATHER RELEASES NEW EP HU$BAND VIA AWFUL RECORDS/RCA RECORDS
SHARES VIDEO FOR NEW TRACK ICEMAN
Toronto, ON – October 9, 2019 – Atlanta rapper/producer/artist, Father, releases today his new EP, HU$BAND, via Awful Records/RCA Records. He also shares the claymation visual for EP track, ICEMAN. Click here to watch.
The HU$BAND EP was led by singles and visuals for A lot on ur plate and Handful, which was selected as Pitchfork’s “The Ones” upon release. The 6-track EP features production from frequent collaborator meltycannon, Bankroll Got It (E-40, Kid Ink), Nate Donmoyer (GESAFFELSTEIN, Kelela), and 420tiesto, with all tracks written by Father.
HU$BAND will be the follow-up to Father’s Awful Swim project, which was released in collaboration with Adult Swim last year, and featured standout tracks, We Had a Deal, Lotto ft. ABRA, and Thotnite.
Father is currently on his US headlining tour which will wrap next week on October 15 in New York. Tickets are available for purchase now. For more information, please visit: fatheraintshit.com/tour. Listen to/watch Handful, catch Father on tour and keep an eye out for more from the Awful Records leader coming soon.
From the start, Father’s music was filled with a mischievous charm that poked fun at the world as much as he pointed the finger back at himself – in his breakthrough single Look at Wrist he famously rapped, “never had to flip a brick, but I get the gist.” This charm built through his first string of albums – Young Hot Ebony (2014), Who’s Gonna Get Fucked First (2015), and I’m a Piece of Shit (2016) – which Father endearingly referred to as, “a trilogy of fuckery.” Dripping with swag, bouncy, lofi beats, and his signature monotonous flow, these three projects cemented Father as the prodigal son of the independent hip hop kingdom.
Father soon relocated to Los Angeles from Atlanta, where he found a new sense of balance and quick success with his 2016 hit single Heartthrob. After forging a partnership with RCA and Adult Swim, Father delivered his most widely acclaimed album yet, Awful Swim (2018). Although still rampant with his devious inner-child, this album showed off Father’s maturity as an artist when it came to working with more complex production and refining his storytelling savvy.
Not far from the spontaneous nature of Awful Swim, the upcoming “A lot on ur plate” captures Father at his strongest and most comfortable. Keep an eye out for more from the DIY Atlanta artist coming soon.
