Welcome back to a very special Tuesdays With Lazerbeak. It brings me great joy to announce that Mixed Blood Majority will be releasing our second full-length album this December 4th! It’s called Insane World and we’ve been hard at work on it for over the last two years now. For those that are unfamiliar, Mixed Blood Majority is the group consisting of Crescent Moon (Kill The Vultures), Joe Horton (No Bird Sing), and myself. Here’s our first single to give you a taste of what we’ve been up to. Shouts to Graham O’Brien on the co-production and Andrew Broder on the cuts. Really love this one and honestly couldn’t be prouder of the entire record. Check out “Same Thing Coming” below and help us spread the word!
We’ll be getting an Insane World pre-order together in the next couple weeks and dropping a few more tracks leading up to the album release, so definitely stay tuned for tons more info. On December 11th we’re gonna celebrate by throwing the most outta control rap party ever at First Avenue’s Mainroom with our ultimate homies P.O.S and GRRRL PRTY!!! Still can’t believe the lineup came together for this one. The most perfect of trifectas. Tickets will officially go on sale to the public this Friday at noon (cop those HERE), but if you sign up for the Doomtree newsletter right HERE you’ll get access to a special one-day presale taking place tomorrow (10/28) that will ensure you get a ticket to the event. Keep your eyes peeled for an email in the morning. So excited for this one. Check out the sweet show flyer designed by Kai Benson for even more details and GET PUMPED.
Speaking of sweet shows (SEGUE STREAK INTACT), Doomtree is headed to Milwaukee this Saturday for a crazy Halloween show at Turner Hall Ballroom! We’re bringing Lizzo and the Surly gang along for the ride, and this one is guaranteed to be theeeee best. Grab your tickets right HERE and come out and party with us. Costumes encouraged.
Hard to believe October is almost over and the first-ever Doomtree Zoo is now well over three weeks old. We recently uncovered a bunch of new merch from that glorious day and decided to throw it up online. We’ve got a ton of new shirts, hats, patches, bandanas, limited-edition screenprinted posters, baseball pennants (!!!), button packs, gloves, and drawstring bags all available at the Doomtree Webstore starting RIGHT NOW. A lot of this stuff won’t be printed again and is only available in limited runs, so grab it while you still can right HERE.
So sweet. Definitely gonna need to comp a personal pair of those gloves for November. I think that’s the main news for today. Sticking to the Mixed Blood Majority theme, I wanted to showcase some Bonus Jams from Crescent Moon’s main group Kill The Vultures. KTV just dropped their brand new album Carnelian last week via our friends at Totally Gross National Product, and the record completely slays front to back. I truly can’t recommend it more highly. Such a unique and distinct take on any type of music that I’ve ever heard. You can stream the entire album on Soundcloud below for a sampling, and then make sure you go buy it HERE and support incredible homegrown music.
Of course I’ve gotta tie it all back to this new Mixed Blood Majority heater “Same Thing Coming” to round out the Bonus Jams for this week. If you forgot to click play at the top of the page, let me save your fingers a little work by posting the song one more time for good measure. Beyond pumped to start rolling out this album campaign in advance of the Insane World release date (December 4th) and crazy release show (December 11th). Much more news coming way sooner than later. Stay tuned!
I’ll leave you with a quick Bonus Penny Pic before calling it. Here she is a few weeks back at the Wifepiece’s office for Take Your Kid To Work Day. Not quite sure what that blue spatula has to do with accounting, but I’d be good money that Young Nelpz is hard at work developing some groundbreaking new techniques that will shake the financial sector to its core. All while rocking a fashion forward striped p-coat. Impressive.
Alright, I hope you all have an awesome week. Looking forward to seeing a ton of you out in Milwaukee this Saturday for the Doomtree/Lizzo show. Have a great Halloween and I’ll see you back here next Tuesday for another round of TWL!
