Dillon Francis asked that you put on his Spotify playlist to set the mood while I tell you about his good news. Also, you should dim the lights and light a couple candles if you have them. Now lay down somewhat impractically on your bearskin rug, propped up on one arm and shake out your hair and look fierce. There, you’re ready for the news.
Dillon Francis is hitting the road this fall on the heels of his upcoming debut album, “Money Sucks, Friends Rule,” also known as the album with the most unsettling artwork.
He’s been on a lot of collaborations, and included as a smaller font on a lot of festival line-ups, but I have a feeling with this full-length release that people will recognize his impressive talent. In other words, Dillon Francis is about to blow up, and will likely dominate the festival circuit for the first half of 2015. But first, the Friends Rule Tour.
The tour kicks off November 17 in Nashville, Tennessee and he’ll work his way up the east coast and then west to LA, then crossing back for the final date headlining the nothing to sneeze-at Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

The first single off the new album, Get Low feat. DJ Snake:
I work, live and play in Minneapolis.
I try to tell the story of the people that create music and experiences through pictures as well as through words.
