After years of waiting patiently to hear a full-length release from hip-hop hardcore duo Ho99o9, the gates of hell have finally opened up and graced us with news of United States of Horror – the band’s debut LP set to hit stores May 5th.
That’s right, after multiple EPs and a Dead Bodies In The Lake mixtape, the New Jersey natives are finally dropping their long-awaited first-ever full-length. And, after a quick peek at the album’s tracklisting, fans are definitely in for a treat as Eaddy and theOGm will be dropping 17 tracks. Yeah, you read that right: SEVENTEEN TRACKS.
“Our debut album is on the way, currently in labor about to give birth to this crossbreed mutant, we’re very delighted to finally bring this destructive & uplifting body of work into the light,” says the band about their forthcoming release. “This record was made to be listened to ‘LOUD AS FUCK’ and only can truly be enjoyed on high volume. If this doesn’t make you want to smash your face through a car window you are wasting your time. If you are offended by any of the content being with this album then I am truly sorry, jus kidding….. we don’t give a fuck. It will be fascinating to some, hateful to others, grateful to all, positive for us/we. Horror music for bad and good people + everything else in between.”
One of the songs on the new record, which the band has been teasing since January, was premiered yesterday via Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 show.
