The inimitable Ho99o9 have announced that they’ll make their highly anticipated return to UK and European venues for a headline tour this November. Tickets for the intimate, up close and personal shows are on sale now. The LA-based duo have spent 2022 making up for lost time with a string of live dates on the Knotfest Roadshow in North America, as well as incendiary appearances at European festivals including Reading & Leeds and Pukkelpop this summer. Ho99o9 have also released a visually arresting new music video for their track ‘SLO BREAD’ which features guest vocals from UGK legend Bun B.
The stuff of legend, Ho99o9’s live show has to be seen to be believed. The newly-announced tour will be the first opportunity for UK and European fans to witness a headline set since the release of their second album ‘SKIN’ earlier this year. Drawing upon hip hop, hardcore punk and a multitude of subcultures in between, Ho99o9 have become an iconic group of the underground, edging their way into the mainstream. Ho99o9 have shared stages with artists from The Dillinger Escape Plan to Danny Brown to The Prodigy, their unique brand of noise-driven energy capturing the imaginations of music fans across the globe.
On ‘SKIN’ theOGM and Yeti Bones worked together with Travis Barker in its production and release, via his DTA Records. The trio worked together off and on over the course of 2020 and 2021, throughout the pandemic, with Barker on drums and production duties. As the situation outside the studio got more tumultuous, Yeti Bones and theOGM got rawer, finding new ways to channel the rage that’s always animated their music — rage that the rest of the world was feeling more and more every day — and peeling back what little pretense they had to reveal their most unapologetically honest selves.
‘SKIN’ is a searing document of a world on fire, distilling all of the turbulence and free-floating confusion and anxiety of our present moment into 12 tightly wound tracks that signal a new era for Ho99o9 and the sonic movement they’re spearheading. If it doesn’t make you want to throw a brick, start a riot, and burn the whole system to the ground, you’re not awake.
