Domino Recording Artists Yo! Majesty to tour North America behind their debut full length release “Futuristically SpeakingÅ Never Be Afraid” in January and February 2009.
Yo! Majesty are hitting the road in support of their much anticipated release, “Futuristically SpeakingÅ Never Be Afraid” (Domino). Their shows are a frantic, sweat filled spectacle, unlike anything you’ve likely experienced before. That is, of course, unless your average night involves two fierce hardline lesbian Christian women searing your mind with dance floor frying electro-rap anthems.
Yo! Majesty have been described in many ways. Mixmag has heralded them as “Punk-Funk-Crunk-Rap” , and The New York Times Magazine have proclaimed “Few acts combine Rap music, Pro-Gay sloganeering and spiritual enlightenment quite like Yo! Majesty do. Any way you slice it, Yo! Majesty will captivate you, uplift you, and get you to move your body and mind.
The duo will set out on North America at the cusp of 2009. This time, they’ll be joined by a live backing group, and their sometime collaborator/producer, DJ David Alexander of Hard Feelings UK. Their always unpredictably exciting live shows are only amped up further by the augmentation, and definitely promise to defy expectations from previous tours. They’ve never been more ready.
“In a sea of bands trying to be different, Yo Majesty couldn’t blend in if they tried Å Futuristically Speaking has been a long time coming, and is full of electro-rap gems” -NYLON
“Imagine a J.J. Fad gone bad or Kathleen Hanna as a strip-club evangelist, and you’ve begun to approximate Yo! Majesty’s sexually empowered sound.” -SPIN
