View the official video, co-directed by Patrick Tohill and NFHERE.

I’ve been searchin

What does that mean Nate? I’ve been learnin

Grabbin my keepsakes

Leavin my burdens

Well I brought a few with me I’m not perfect

Lookin at the view like this concerns me…

Cold world out there kids grab your coats

Been a minute I know now I’m back to roam

Looking for the antidote

To crack the code

The Search is NF’s fourth full-length album. It follows the independently released Perception (NF Real Music/Caroline), which took the music industry by surprise when fans propelled it to the No. 1 spot on the Billboard200 upon its release. Also topping Billboard’s Top Rap Albums and Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums charts, Perception was the ultimate underdog story of 2017, as chronicled by The New York TimesRolling Stone and Forbes, with the latter noting, “NF’s success speaks to what can be done these days outside of the traditional system.”

Now certified Platinum in the U.S., Perception has earned more than two million album equivalent units worldwide while cumulative streams have surpassed 3.5 billion. Singles like “Let You Down” – 3x Platinum and a No. 1 Pop radio hit in the U.S., and certified Platinum or higher in seven additional countries – “Lie” and “If You Want Love” further expanded NF’s fanbase, paving the way for his sold-out, 87-date 2018 Perception World tour of North America and Europe, numerous festival appearances and the direct support slot on Logic’s Bobby Tarantino Vs Everybody arena tour.

Dropkick Murphys

Dropkick Murphys will kick off fall 2019 with a coast-to-coast tour featuring Clutch, launching September 20 at the Mass Mutual Center in Springfield, MA. Joined by special guests Amigo The Devil and more to be announced, the tour is playing Red Hat Amphitheater Raleigh on 9/24 and Charlotte Metro Credit Union Amphitheatre on 9/25. Tickets go on sale Thursday, April 18 at LiveNation.com and via the Live Nation app.

Since forming in 1996, Boston’s Dropkick Murphys have sold a staggering 7 million albums worldwide, with 2005’sThe Warrior’s Code achieving an RIAA Gold certification and its smash single “I’m Shipping Up To Boston” nearing double platinum and appearing during a key moment of Martin Scorsese’s Academy Award-winning The Departed. They’ve hosted sold out concerts at most of the city’s landmarks, including Fenway Park, TD Garden, the Boston Pops, and even the last voyage of the USS Constitution. Dropkick Murphys­ are touring in support of their 11 Short Stories Of Pain & Glory album, released through the band's own Born & Bred Records in 2017. The album debuted at #8 on the Billboard Top 200 and was the #1 independently released album. There's a feeling of purpose throughout the album, influenced by the band's work with The Claddagh Fund, a charity the band established in 2009 to help support addiction recovery as well as children's and veterans' organizations.

Maryland rockers Clutch have been pushing the boundaries of heavy rock music since the 4 original members got together in high school. Having been tagged hard rock, blues rock, southern stoner rock and alternative metal by media and fans across the world it is safe to say one thing…“What you see is what you get” and what you get is a musical force that has been best described as the quintessential American Rock Band.  Clutch quickly became known for their relentless touring schedules, playing shows from whiskey stained 2 door venues in the hills of West Virginia to the iconic Brixton Academy in the UK, and are currently touring in support of their 12th album Book Of Bad Decisions.
