We were sworn to secrecy, but since RSE just announced it, here it is:

Iconic New York-born, San Francisco-based rapper and producer, Aesop Rock, is joining forces with Rhymesayers to release his sixth studio album, Skelethon, on July 10th 2012. Since the release of None Shall Pass in 2007, we’ve seen Aesop Rock touring the world, launching online arts outlet, 900bats.com, and collaborating on LPs with Felt, Hail Mary Mallon, the Uncluded and more. Skelethon not only sees the rapper back waxing poetically on his own but also marks his first wholly self-produced effort. While the sounds are familiar, we see Aesop venturing in some exciting new directions with guest appearances from indie rock archetype, Kimya Dawson, as well as Allyson Baker of Dirty Ghosts, Hanni El Khatib, Nicky Fleming-Yaryan, Rob Sonic, DJ Big Wiz and the Grimace Federation. Aesop’s new album follows in the wake of several deep personal losses and highlights subject matter that deals with the sometimes-futile ways people try to cope with serious issues. The cover art comes from Barcelona-based painter Aryz. Skelethon is set to be both a showpiece for his illustrious career and a serious payoff for his droves of ever-patient loyal fans.

with Aesop Rock, I botched up the chance to get the repress of Appleseed on the site for the weekend (sorry, he tried,  I didn’t pick up the phone).  I am offering a goofy picture of Kimya & Rob instead.

Check them all at the Greek Theater in Berkeley with Atmosphere on the Family Tour tomorrow night. Tickets still available!

Also, finally got the new shirts on the site: Hail Mary Mallon, Aesop Rock Crow (silver), Aesop Rock Crow (white).  All designed by Coro!    We only have a limited quantity of the shirts, as they are taking most of them on the road with them.  The east coast leg of the tour starts Tuesday…

People comment all the time how we never update the blog with office visit pictures anymore…folks still stop by, but they’re all pretty much tired of posing for our bad pictures.  Rob Sonic, DJ Big Wiz, and Aesop Rock (the group now known as  Hail Mary Mallon) humored us.  They even posed with a copy of Sonic Sum’s second single, “Callarama Galla”  (featuring a Dan Lang cover).  They’re about  to do a bunch of tour dates (and release a new album on RSE).  More Aesop news on his new site including new shirt designs & tour dates…
