The Dean’s List are wrapping up a nationwide headlining tour with OnCue and Gilbere Forté, with the final stop out of 40+ cities happening tonight. For all you motherfuckers in Cedar Falls, Iowa, you’re in luck. Buy your tickets here.
An article on the New York Times website today explores the value of releasing free music. It takes a look at how artists like Mac Miller, J. Cole, and Wale have benefited from giving out songs and mixtapes online, focusing on building up an audience instead of selling records. The Dean’s List understands this. Back towards the beginning of 2010 when we first heard The Dean’s List, they were just hoping to be heard. Now look at them, wrapping up a 40+ city headlining tour without any major label or mainstream media coverage.
And despite the fact that tonight is the last night of their tour, they keep the new music coming. Here’s the latest, a P&P premiere called “Unbelievers.” Grab it below.
