EARTHGANG Share “American Horror Story”
EARTHGANG have released “American Horror Story.” The new track is the first taste from the pair’s forthcoming release Ghetto Gods, available January 28, 2022. The Atlanta duo’s, “American Horror Story” is about the real story of living in America. It reflects the challenges, injustices and hardships living as Black men in this country. Often when reflecting back on the year, the reality of the obstacles are not spoken about and the focus is purely on the positive.
EARTHGANG is Comprised of of Olu and WowGr8, the duo debuted on the scene with a string of EPs and quickly garnered a reputation for their eclectic style and infectious live energy. Marrying lean, sharp-eyed lyricism with Southern-fried soul, every song arrives fully formed, hitting hard and landing jokes while also delving deep into political issues. Meeting J.Cole at one of their live shows led the pair to sign with his Interscope Records joint venture, Dreamville Records. Since the signing, EARTHGANG have become a force in the music space releasing bodies of critically acclaimed work like debut album, Mirrorland; Spilligion, the collaborative album with their Spillage Village supergroup as well as the Dreamville compilation, Revenge of the Dreamers III, which earned the pair two Grammy nominations as well as their first #1 album status. Simultaneously, they have been cementing the broadness with collaborations alongside Gorillaz, Brittany Howard, TokiMonsta, Snakehips, Louis The Child and more.
EARTHGANG have toured stadiums, selling out their own headlining shows and gracing festival stages both stateside and internationally. Throughout it all, they remain true to their mission of “thinking global and act local” — finding time to invest in community led initiatives in their hometown of Southwest Atlanta and in 2020 mobilizing thousands of voters, ultimately helping to flip the state of Georgia through direct collaboration with former First Lady Michelle Obama, Governor Stacey Abrams and Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms. Earlier this year, the duo announced the name of their upcoming sophomore release, Ghetto Gods, the follow up to their critically acclaimed debut, Mirrorland (2019). The album is a reminder of the godhood present in all of us, and a study in how our environments create our reality, which, through dedication, faith and belief can be transmuted into whatever we desire.
