Let's have a mid-city fiesta

PUTS are back with new album and a tour that will actually bring them to the east coast.

For those of you who have been holding your breath for Thes One to put his admirable solo work and label on hold and team back up with Double K to release the sixth proper People Under The Stairs record, you can now exhale. Fun DMC is slated for a September 30 release on Gold Dust Media, which, according to Hoodgrown Magazine is an “urban-oriented” subsidiary of Berlin-based !K7 specifically dedicated to American hip-hop. With planned releases by Prince Paul, Zion I, 40 Cal and a Notorious B.I.G. DVD, we here at IMPOSE are cautiously optimistic.

According to the press release:

The album was recorded, produced, rolled and twisted entirely in-house, on a custom recording console which Thes One helped design. As the name implies, it's a party record, filled with the sounds of afternoon BBQs and curb-side beer drinking.

01 The Swan Fever
02 Step Bacc
03 Up Yo Spine (Live At The Fishbucket pt. 3)

And if that wasn't enough, the duo plans to hit the road immediately in support of their latest effort. This might not seem like too big a deal for those of you out west, but for those of us on the east coast, it's like music to our ears. Unfortunately for all of us, there is no music yet to be leaked, so we will leave you with one of their classics.
