Atmosphere Album Due 4/22


Atmosphere, the prolific duo of Slug and producer Ant are set to release their highly anticipated sixth official studio album When Life Gives You Lemons, You Paint That Shit Gold on April 22 2008. The acclaimed Minneapolis-based hip-hop group have performed over 2000 shows and sold well over 1 million units worldwide as the flagship artist on the independent label Rhymesayers Entertainment.

The initial pressing of When Life Gives You Lemons, You Paint That Shit Gold will be packaged as a 40 page hard cover black fabric book with gold embossing. The book contains lyrics, album credits and an illustrated children's story written by Slug. This limited package will also include a bonus DVD with over an hour of live footage and extras from the final shows of the "Everybody Loves A Clown" tour shot at First Avenue nightclub in Minneapolis, with Dolby 5.1 surround audio.

When Life Gives You Lemons, You Paint That Shit Gold, will mark Atmosphere's most complete album to date. Recorded in the dead of Winter, and influenced by fatherhood, Slug's storytelling and Ant's lush melodies have never been more poignant. Atmosphere will tour the U.S. and Canada performing release parties in support of the new album in 15 cities beginning on April 22, 2008.

21mmer...I'm a Minneapolis guy and I highly recommend giving Atmosphere a listen. Check out his previous albums, Lucy Ford, God Loves Ugly, and Seven's Travels. You won't be disappointed. Good to read about a local boy from time to time!

I had the privilege of seeing Atmosphere live with a full backing band on the Pour Me Another Tour, and it was one of the best shows I've ever seen. Can't wait for this one.

That is the shit to see jambase covering all genres. Never did I think I would read about an independant semi-underground Hip Hop group on this site. Slug and ANT, for those who dont know, represent MN to the fullest. Check out Overcast (first Album SICK!!), Felt and Felt 2 (with MURS) has some great ANT beats. There are some great clips on you tube of Slug and Eyedea freestyling on the Wake up Show. Eyedes is another MN cat who throws down some of the meanest battle raps Ive heard! These guys have amazing lyrical abilities and I cant wait to check out another live show of Atmosphere. If only they were all 21+, First Avenue gets rediculous at all ages shows.

Lucy, God Loves Ugly and Seven's are definitely awesome, but you also should consider the older headshots seven's and all the unofficial releases
