FreeSol Hit the Road With Down With Webster on January 31st
SANTA MONICA, Calif., Jan. 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Known for their energetic live hip-hop shows, that bridge the gap between rap, rock, funk, and soul, Memphis-based quintet FreeSol have announced that they will hit the road with Canadian hip-hop/rock band Down With Webster on January 31st for a string of co-headline dates that continues through mid-February.
FreeSol — which is FreeSol Anderson (vocals/lyrics), Kickman Teddy (drums), E. Ives (guitar/vocals), Mo D’Anger (keyboards), and Charlie White (DJ) –formed in 2003 when rapper Free decided to move beyond the basic “two turntables and a microphone” hip-hop formula. The band had already developed a massive regional buzz in the South before being discovered by another Memphis native, Justin Timberlake, who saw them perform and signed them to his label Tennman Records.
The band, who have already been creating a buzz for their singles “Hoodies On, Hats Low” and “Role Model,” released a brand-new track, “Fascinated” featuring Timberlake and Timbaland in November. Produced by Timbaland co-produced by Hannon Lane, “Fascinated” is currently available from all digital retailers. A video for the clip, which also features Timberlake and Timbaland, can be seen on VEVO here. Shot in Los Angeles, the video was directed by award-winning director Colin Tilley (Chris Brown, Justin Bieber, Diddy Dirty Money).
FreeSol are touring to give fans a taste of their upcoming album No Rules, which features production by Timbaland, Jim Jonsin, Mike Elizondo, Printz Board, Dave Tozer, Greg Gordon, and The Y’s and is due out on Tennman Records/Interscope Records this year.
“We invite fans to come celebrate with us as we share songs off of No Rules with an intense, high-energy performance guaranteed to leave you Fascinated!” says frontman FreeSol Anderson.
Watch FreeSol perform a medley of “Fascinated” and “Role Model” on The Late Show With David Letterman here.
