Flatbush Zombies Announce East Coast Shows

Brooklyn hip-hop trio, FLATBUSH ZOMBIES are set to take over the East Coast this January for the first time since 2013. The three-piece outfit will play a one-off sideshow at Brisbane’s Max Watts as well as supporting RUN THE JEWELS in Melbourne and Sydney.

With confirmation of a spot at Origin Festival already locked in, this is an opportunity to see New York’s hottest hip-hop trinity for yourself this summer.

Out of Flatbush, New York came The Flatbush Zombies (aka FBZ) consisting of emcees Meechy Darko and Juice, as well as lifelong friend and producer, Erick Arc Elliott. Formed in 2010, Meech and Elliott grew up together in Brooklyn and eventually connected with beat-maker Juice at high school. The trio immediately kicked it off with their love of all things hip-hop.
High school was spent writing rhymes, crafting beats and freestyling their way towards their first release ‘Thug Waffle’; a critically acclaimed homage to breakfast and… substances. Things started to heat up for the group with the release of their first full length album, D.R.U.G.S. (“Death and Reincarnation Under God’s Supervision”). This album rapidly propelled them to the forefront of the NY hip-hop scene. Their psychotropic instrumentation and off-kilter rhyme style continued with their epic follow up mixtape, Better Off Dead. The long-awaited 2016 album, 3001: A Laced Odyssey perfectly captures the 90s golden era hip-hop vibes with a blend of macabre, old-school lyricism that have aligned FBZ with the some of the all-time great, hip-hop heads.

The trio’s collaborations include ASAP Rocky, Danny Brown, Action Bronson and Joey Bada$$ among others.

Flatbush Zombies are here to take you on a kaleidoscopic journey through the colourful twisted minds of Meechy, Arc and Juice. Don’t miss it!
