Run The Jewels announce new tour dates

Run The Jewels announce new North American dates.

Ahead of the release of their forthcoming full-length RTJ3. Run the Jewels, have announced dates for their North American tour. The “Run the World” tour kicks off mid-January in Philadelphia and continues through to the end of February, with stops in veritably every major city in the US along the way. Support for the tour will be provided by Brainfeeder-affiliated hip hop experimentalist The Gaslamp Killer, mysterious underground MC Spark Master Tape, & longtime Killer Mike collaborator CUZ. 22q

In conjunction with the tour announce, Gears of War have unveiled their previously announced playable Run the Jewels characters for Versus Multiplayer and Horde 3.0.This is the first time two recording artists have been reimagined as playable characters in the Gears of War franchise or any Xbox game. The brotherhood that Killer Mike and El-P represent as Run the Jewels perfectly matches the soul of Gears, which at its core is about that brotherhood and never fighting alone. Available for purchase as part of the Run the Jewels Air Drop, both El-P and Killer Mike have lent their voices, likeness and ‘can’t nobody save us but us’ attitude to Gears of War 4 continuing their partnership with Xbox and The Coalition. Also available alongside the playable El-P and Killer Mike within the Run the Jewels Air Drop are 18 themed weapon skins, emblems and bounties to ensure fans have the appropriate levels of swagger to add to their Gears of War 4 Versus Multiplayer and Horde experience.
