THEY. release “Silence” via Julie Adenuga’s Beats 1 radio show

Dante Jones and Drew Love of THEY. return with another look into their debut album entitled “Silence.”  The slow-burner is based on that crucial, vulnerable moment after coitus and exemplifies the duo’s penchant for pop-friendly songwriting colored by R&B arrangements, a hip-hop attitude, and rock instrumentation.  The song premiered on Julie Adenuga’s show on Beats 1, Apple Music’s global radio station: https://itunes.apple.com/us/post/idsa.0f388310-f876-11e6-9aab-165c869d6f9a

THEY.’s 14-track debut Nü Religion: Hyena drops this Friday February 24th.  Shortly after, the pair will hit the road again for their 20-city headlining Nü Religion Tour. Tickets are available at https://THEY.lnk.to/webAY. For every ticket purchased, fans will receive a copy of the new album  Essential to their “Nü Religion” is empowerment, which is why THEY. are providing locals in each city to open for them via their socials and a microsite which has received over thousands of entries to date: https://unofficialthey.com/pages/submit.  More information to come tomorrow in their Reddit AMA.

With award-winning production and songwriting solo work with other artists (Kelly Clarkson, Chris Brown, Jeremih, etc), the pair by way of Denver and DC met in Los Angeles through a mutual friend and immediately clicked on their eclectic tastes including The Weeknd, Taking Back Sunday, New Edition, Nirvana, Jeremih, Pharrell Williams and Slim Thug amongst others.  Under the guidance of mentor Timbaland, THEY. started to meld their diverse musical background to create their own “grunge-n-b” sound.  Following a hit dance collaboration with Skrillex and Mind of a Genius Records label mate/friend ZHU “Working For It,” THEY. dropped their acclaimed 3-track Nü Religion EP which has racked up tens of millions of streams on Soundcloud and Spotify.  The EP would lead to an offer from Bryson Tiller to join his worldwide “T R A P S O U L” tour, a performance on the Pigeons & Planes stage at the inaugural ComplexCon, and touring with PARTYNEXTDOOR and Jeremih for their “Summer’s Over” tour.
