Atlanta hip-hop duo EarthGang announced a tour in support of their new album, Mirrorland, during which they will perform in cities across the U.S. and Canada, including a show at Skully’s Music Diner in Columbus on Wednesday, October 23. Benji, Duckwrth and Guapdad 4000 will join EarthGang on the road for the EarthGang – Welcome To Mirrorland Tour.
EarthGang’s newest release, Mirrorland, arrived last month under J. Cole’s music label Dreamville. Featuring contributions from Young Thug, T-Pain and others, Mirrorland is one of the duo’s largest projects to date and features the animated rap flows that have become a staple of EarthGang’s eccentric style.
EarthGang was also featured on the Dreamville label project Revenge of the Dreamers III, marking another significant moment in the band’s incredibly busy 2019.
EarthGang members WowGr8 (also known as Doctur Dot) and Olu (also known as Johnny Venus) cemented a close friendship after meeting on the first day of school and realizing their shared affinity for music. From recording songs in dorm rooms to being discovered and signed by J. Cole, EarthGang has embraced their “weirdo” label and infused traditional, Outkast-like Southern hip-hop formulas with zany, psychedelic sonics.
Tickets for EarthGang’s performance at Skully’s are on sale now. The show will begin with an opening act from Duckwrth at 7:00 p.m. Tickets are $25 and can be purchased here.
