Macie Stewart, Lane Beckstrom and Liam Cunningham formerly of Kids These Days have formed a new band, Marrow. The band, which also features drummer Matthew Carroll, makes their debut today with their new video/short film for “Two”. Great song, great video.
“Two” is actually the title track from the band’s new EP, which is scheduled to be released December 19th. Check out the video above and keep an ear open for more new music from Marrow soon.

Yesterday we did a full recap of Chance’s show (which you can read/watch here), but in this clip just released, you can get a better idea of what went on behind the scenes of Chance’s set, and how the “Cocoa Butter Kisses” surprise came together. Watch Vic, Chano, T and (a few of the) Kids These Days make magic happen. A very great moment.

SaveMoney has been doing this for a while, but they’ve yet to give us the gift of a group project. So we put one together out of 25 of their best songs so far. Think of this as the Save Money “essentials,” but there are sure to be many more in the years to come (as well as many great songs that aren’t on the list). In light of the entire world’s introduction to Chance The Rapper, it’s only right that the team starts getting the attention they deserve. Besides, they’re all very good at this thing called rapping.
Say it ain’t so. We’re sorry to report that critically acclaimed Chicago band, Kids These Days, has called it quits. After a successful run, and high profile gigs such as Lollapalooza, Coachella and Conan O’Brien (not to mention a deal with adidas), the group’s lead rapper Vic Mensa announced the split on XXL:
But alas, just as sure as time goes on and musical fads change, some good things must eventually come to an end. And so today, Kids These Days have announced that they will no longer function as a band, which is sad news to the group’s followers who have watched them as they’ve made appearances at major festivals like South By and Lollapalooza, and major TV shows like Conan. The news does come with a silver lining, though, in that the Kids’ lead singer/rapper Vic Mensa – who was recently featured on standout track “Cocoa Butter Kisses” from Chance The Rapper’s Acid Rap mixtape – has announced his solo career.
This comes as a shock and bad news to many. We wish each group member the best of luck in their future endeavors. Read Vic’s full interview discussing the split right here.
In case you didn’t know, the Windy’s own Kids These Days were in Indio, California this past weekend to perform at Coachella. Missed it? No worries. Up top, you can catch KTD performing “Bud Billiken” from their Traphouse Rock project.
If you haven’t given that a listen yet, be sure to do it here.

In honor of March Madness, kindred spirits Chance The Rapper and Kids These Days embarked on a short but sweet domestic tour. Watch as the two factions hit the road and dominate cities across the midwest.
Chance The Rapper and Kids These Days’ March Madness Tour swung through Bloomington, IL last Thursday night, and Supreme Regime was on hand to capture the mayhem. Looked like a good time. Be sure to catch these acts when they come through your city in the near future.
While out in New York Chicago collective Kids These Days chopped it with Rosenberg on his Real Late with Rosenberg show. They talk about the origins of the band, their unique sound, and more.
Looks like Kids These Days will be taking their talents to California’s Riverside county. Earlier tonight, Coachella unveiled their lineup for the two weekend festival and present were the traphouse rockin’ Kids These Days. Dope, right? Congrats are definitely in order for the collective.
The festival takes place April 12th – 14th and April 19th – 21st, so keep that in mind if you plan on attending. Hit the jump to check out the rest of the lineup.
