THE OBGMs announce UK release of self-titled debut album
out 8th September via Black Box
Reveal new single and video ‘Pill
The second single to be revealed from The OBGMs’ forthcoming self-titled debut album is ‘Pill’, resplendent with vibrant video clip. Vocalist/guitarist and chief songwriter Densil McFarlane comments of its director “Ryan Enn Hughes has been the best in the game from time. He’s a true visionary who knows how to reflect chaos in a simple way.”
Originally emerging on the Toronto hip hop scene as a rap trio, The OBGMs turned their attentions to punk rock after songwriter / guitarist / vocalist Densil discovered the punk scene and began teaching himself guitar. He was determined to create a band that fused the lyrical creativity of his hip hop roots and the rowdy, raw energy of the punk rock underground. The resulting self-titled debut album is chaotic yet focused, with The OBGMs’ brand of punk rock exuberantly and inextricably married with a flow that’s unmistakably born from hip hop.
