If you have been waiting for fresh material from Staten Island’s most notorious rap crew then maybe this year we will see a brand new full length from the Wu Tang Clan after all. This Friday at a show in the US, Method Man leaked news that a new record was in the pipeline leaving fans wondering what is coming.
The group’s seminal debut album Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) will be 20 years of age this November so there’s a good chance that will be celebrated with some new tunes as a follow up to 2007’s 8 Diagrams. We expect there will also be a 20th Anniversary remastered re-issue with extra tracks coming too as a retrospective but who knows. Play this video for Method’s words and look out for more info soon.
Funny things are a happening in Washington DC right now. Following the news this week that Dag Nasty have reformed (the original ‘Can I Say’ line up), Dischord Records have announced that they have re-issued the original Rites of Spring demos.
All of this has come, no doubt from the forthcoming ‘Salad Days’ documentary that is currently being put together by Scott Crawford in the US, a film neding funding for completion right now but is much anticpated in the hardcore scene.
Dag Nasty will play on 28th December at the Black Cat venue in Washington and the Rites of Spring demos that were released on casette only in 1984 will get its first official release on October 23rd from the Dischord website.
