New Jurassic 5 Album and Tour On the Way

Hip-Hop quintet

Jurassic 5 is hitting the road for a nationwide wide tour in support of its

forthcoming album, Feedback.

The release, which

follows the group's previous efforts, Power by Numbers and Quality

Control, will allow fans to hear growth from the Los

Angeles-based group.

"It's a step

up for us because we have been basically known as an underground group. We've

been known as a backpacker group," said Soup.

"This album still has elements of that because that's who we are, but at

the same time we are also trying to step into another realm."

Producers on the

album include Nu-Mark ("Future Sound," "Red Hot," and "Where

We At"), Scott Storch ("Brown Girl"), Salaam Remi ("Radio"


"Get It Together"), Exile and Bean One.

Featured guests

consist of Mos Def, who appears on the track, "Where We At" and the

Dave Matthews Band, who drop by for the first single, "Work It Out."

The Jurassic 5

tour is slated to kick off before the album's July 25 release date.

The outing will

land in close to three dozen cities, including stops in Austin, Texas, Washington,

D.C., Charlotte, Las Vegas and Los Angeles.
