MACKLEMORE & RYAN LEWIS will release their highly anticipated debut album THE HEIST on Tuesday, October 9th 2012, with the accompanying THE HEIST WORLD TOUR kicking off at Chicago’s famed Lollapalooza Festival. The 65+ city trek includes Europe, the UK, Canada, the US, a handful of major festival appearances, and soon to be added shows in Australia and New Zealand. The tour will also feature a proper homecoming show on Oct12th at the 7,500 capacity WAMU Theatre in Seattle, WA. New Orleans emcee Dee-1 will act as the main support act for the duration of the US portion.
The duo have been hard at work recording THE HEIST since returning home from their last headline tour, in December of 2011. Though taking short breaks from recording to perform at numerous college campuses, festivals, and a recent trek to Europe, the group has remained focused on delivering their fans with the in-demand new album.
THE HEIST is preceded by two EP projects, the VS EP in 2009 and VS Redux in 2010, as well as four highly successful single releases and undeniable music videos. WINGS, a fan favorite and one of the groups’ notable music video releases, is approaching 5 million YouTube views, adding to the more than 20 million views the group has amassed. As an independent team with no current association with a record label, the group has built their brand from the ground up and continues to be completely in-house with their music, art design, photography, merchandise and all other platforms of artistry.
Gaining steady momentum over the last year in particular, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis now hold a singular place in the Pacific Northwest and beyond, emerging as a premier national hip-hop group with numerous career highlights to their name. A genuine lyricist and an electrifying live performer, Macklemore, with his producer Ryan Lewis, havegarnered critical acclaim and an extremely devoted fan base. With Macklemore’s recent national feature on the cover of XXL Magazine’s Freshman Class of 2012, the pair is prepped to reach an even wider audience with the Fall release of THE HEIST.
