Toronto, ON - Toronto-based pop-rock-rap group, Down With Webster, is thrilled to announce their upcoming U.S. tour with Jonny Craig, Kyle Lucas, and Captain Midnite! The band is currently finishing up their current tour with Timeflies and will be heading out on the road with Jonny Craig starting on January 14th in West Hollywood, CA. See below for the full list of dates. Down With Webster have recently been in the studio working on new music with Matt Squire (Ariana Grande, Panic! At The Disco, 3OH!3) to follow up their latest album Party For Your Life. For more information on Down With Webster, please visit: www.downwithwebster.com
From their first performance at a high school talent show, Down With Webster have created their own flavor of genre-bending sounds, and blown away audiences ever since. After winning the "Best Unsigned Band" recognition from Rogers Mobile, DWW attracted attention from record labels, and musical heavyweights including Sir Richard Branson, Timbaland, and KISS front man Gene Simmons. Today, the group is built of two emcees (Cam Hunter & Bucky), a DJ (Diggy), a charismatic lead singer (Pat Gillett), and one of the most talented rhythm sections in the game (Andrew "Marty" Martino on drums, Tyler Armes on bass/keys). One might describe their sound as hip-hop with a hint of electro-alternative, delivered by a kick ass rock band.
In the few years since practicing in their parents garage, Down With Webster's songs have charted at Top40 Radio, amassed more than 500,000 Facebook likes, sold 900,000 downloads and 100,000 albums. Their videos have been streamed over 15 million times, and they've rocked hundreds of shows. It's their tireless pursuit of creating the greatest party on stage that has won them loyal believers coast to coast, and earned them this description from UPVENUE Magazine: "It's like taking a handful of fireworks, lighting them, then throwing them in to a barrel of fireworks."
Because their music defies classification, and they've been called "the second coming of The Beastie Boys," Down With Webster has earned the respect of, and both shared the stage with, and performed with, LMFAO, Timbaland, Ludacris, Lil Jon, 3OH!3 and even KISS.
Down With Webster's new album Party For Your Life debuted as the #1 digital album in Canada (#2 overall on the charts), and enlisted collaborators Ludvin (Childish Gambino), Boi-1da (Drake, Eminem), and have reunited with production duo The Maven Boys (Meek Mill, Childish Gambino) to help them continue their twist of conventional music genres. Songs from the album have already been licensed by NBC's hit show "The Voice," as well as CBC for the 2014 Winter Olympics. The band also recently wrapped up a U.S. tour with Hoodie Allen this past spring.
