Anthony Hamilton’s famed backup vocalists and Grammy-nominated viral sensations The Hamiltones step to the forefront today (6/7/2019) with the release of their debut EP Watch The Ton3s. Now available on all digital streaming platforms via Young Vintage LLC/Common Cents Media Group/Dame Inc./EMPIRE, the project features guests Ricco Barrino and Phonte (of Little Brother). With five new sentimental love songs and a remix, Watch The Ton3s is loaded with heavenly harmonies, carefully crafted lyrics, and live instrumentation that hark back to a time when you didn’t just listen to music, you felt it.
“We can switch up every now and then, but this is a soul/R&B EP — feel-good music.” –2E (of The Hamiltones)
Watch The Ton3s arrives on the heels of the trio’s most recent viral rendition of Lil’ Nas X’s smash hit “Old Town Road“. The video has amassed over two million views since Saturday, June 1, 2019 and was shot backstage before their performance in The Truth About Black Men, a stage play by Zuri Craig, co-starring Patrice Lovely, and Don Brumsfield (of VH1’s Black Ink Crew Chicago). The play will be in Chicago on Saturday, June 15. The Hamiltones are then set to perform at ESSENCE Festival in New Orleans on Friday, July 5th. Check the full tour schedule on the official website.
