Watsky has announced the release of his fifth full-length album COMPLAINT, due out on January 11th, 2019. To date, Watsky has shared three tracks set to appear on the forthcoming COMPLAINT – “Mean Ass Drunk,” “All Like Whatever” and “Welcome to the Family.” Pre-orders for the record are set to launch later this week!
Watsky also announced today that he’ll be hitting the road again in 2019 on The COMPLAINT Tour – the first in support of COMPLAINT and his biggest headlining tour to date. Pre-sales begin today with general on-sale this Friday, December 14. For full dates, see below and for more information, check out georgewatsky.com/tour/.
COMPLAINT contains all the magic that Watsky fans have come to love – whip-smart lyricism, acrobatic rapping, and a bent for balancing intellect and poignance with whimsy and wit – all while continuing to expand on the sonic sphere he occupies. An incredibly varied set, COMPLAINT follows 2016’s x Infinity which debuted at #4 on the Billboard Rap Albums Chart and gained critical acclaim from NPR, SF Chronicle, Stereogum,Billboard, Alternative Press and more. x Infinity came just months after Watsky’s debut essay collection How To Ruin Everything (Penguin/Random House) hit shelves and became a New York Times Bestseller.
George Watsky began his career as a young poet and musician in San Francisco when he won the Brave New Voices National Poetry Slam in 2006. The win would propel him to amass several other awards as a slam poet. Watsky has appeared on the NAACP Image Awards, The Kennedy Center, The Ellen Degeneres Show, Epic Rap Battles of History, and more.
COMPLAINT is due out on January 11, 2019, full tour dates are below and preorders are set to launch this week. For the most up to date information, visit www.georgewatsky.com.
