(AllHipHop News) Socially conscious Hip-Hop group dead prez will make a return to the Hip-Hop scene with the release of their new album Information Age.
The group, which consists of members M1 and Stic.Man, have signed a new deal with independent New York label, Krian Music.
Under the new deal, dead prez will drop their first album in over eight years.
“We feel very positive about our joint venture with Krian,” the group told AllHipHop.com in a joint statement released today (September 27).
“We’ve had a great relationship with Royalty network for many years,” the group said. “Dead prez has always prided ourselves on our independence and integrity and we were able to form a partnership with Krian that can appreciate what dead prez’ significance to the culture is and has the capabilities to help us reach bigger goals with the Information Age album around the world. Team work makes the dream work!”
Krian Music launched by Frank Liwall, the founder of the Royalty Network, an independent publishing company.
Krian Music decided to release a digital version of the album in October, due to the political climate in the country over the upcoming presidential elections.
“After working closely with M-1 and Stic for more than 10 years as their publishing Administrator, we’ve developed a very close and unique bond,” stated Frank Liwall, President of Royalty Network and Krian Music Group. ‘So now being in a position to release their first album in eight years, on our label, is an absolute privilege and honor. One that could only come through the years of working together.”
The digital version of Information Age will be released on October 16, while the physical version of the album will land in stores on January 22.
