[August 30, 2021 | New York, NY] Today, New York City-based alternative hip-hop band Oxymorrons have dropped another undeniably catchy single that drives an important message. Following their anti-racism war-cry “Justice” and the braggadocious banger “Green Vision”, the band’s new song “Django” serves as the third single from their anticipated Mohawks & Durags EP. The project is slated for release on September 20, 2021 via Jason Aalon Butler’s (Fever 333 / Pressure Cracks / Letlive) artist collective 333 Wreckords Crew.

Pulling from their multicultural backgrounds and experiences (the members are of Haitian, Dominican, and Venezuelan descent), the band sought to put their existence as men of color in society – and in navigating the music industry – into perspective.

When asked to expand on the inspiration behind “Django”, Oxymorrons as a group shared, “Django is not only our tribute to 90’s Hip Hop and Rock. It’s about being black and proud. It’s an unapologetic celebration of our melanin. We used Django because so often our society only celebrates fictional embodiments of black resistance, while erasing the actual black revolutionaries throughout global history. The systems in place don’t want us to see ourselves in those that look like us… that fought for our peoples liberation (see Haiti, DR, Africa, etc). We say, fuck that. I look like him, You look like him, We look like him. DJANGO!!!”

Continuing their trend of taking iconic rock covers and flipping them on their heads – “Justice” with Queen’s self titled, “Green Vision” with Nirvana’s ‘Nevermind’ – the “Django” artwork is an Oxy-fied spin on Bruce Springsteen’s ‘Born in the USA’.

Oxymorrons will be hitting the road hard this fall in support of their upcoming Mohawks & Durags EP. First leg opening for Anti-Flag, and the second run opening for Neck Deep alongside Boston Manor, Zero 9:36, and Heart Attack Man.

When you think about Alternative music Oxymorrons undoubtedly come to mind. The New York-based boundary-pushers have made a name for themselves in the spirit of change – building a movement from years of being told they were too rock for hip-hop, too hip-hop for rock. They boldly committed to creating music that defies arbitrary rules of classification, cementing the band as early pioneers of the modern genre-blending revolution and receiving co-signs from Billboard, The Fader, Complex, VIBE, Hypebeast, Highsnobiety, Ebro Darden’s Apple Music 1. As the newest addition to Jason Aalon Butler’s (Fever 333) Artist Collective ‘333 Wreckords Crew’, Oxymorrons expanded their sound with their first releases under the collective, “Justice” and “Green Vision”. they’re finally getting the recognition they deserve in the Alt-Scene with support from Kerrang!, Revolver, DSCVRD, Hot Topic and BBC1 Radio’s Jack Sanders and Daniel P. Carter. Although 2020 was the year of the pandemic, Oxymorrons solidified their base, finished an EP, booked two US tours and are in prime position to bring the noise in 2021.
