As hip-hop supergroup Slaughterhouse (Joe Budden, Joell Ortiz, Royce Da 5’9”, Crooked I) wrap up their successful and much talked about dates on the Rock The Bells tour, the group announces national tour dates for Fall 2009. The group is set to hit the road with powerhouse MC Tech N9ne on the K.O.D. Tour 2009 which will run from October through November hitting over 30 cities nationwide.
The group’s much buzzed self-titled debut album is in stores now. With press heaping praise on the release, the album debuted at an impressive #26 on the Billboard Top 200 with demand quickly outstripping supply record stores across the country. The first single “The One” can be heard now via radio with the video still on rotation on MTV2 and MTV Jamz.
A new single/video from the album will launch shortly, with details to be revealed soon.
When asked about the upcoming tours, Royce Da 5’9”expressed, “We’ve had such a great time touring with Tech N9ne this summer during the Rock The Bells tour that going back out was an obvious choice for us. I think these dates will be the ones to watch.”
Joell Ortiz adds, “I’m really looking forward to going out with Tech this fall. This will be one of the longest periods of time I’ve been on the road. We’re doing back to back shows! Let’s see… Fly gear, check. Rhymes, check. Guitar, check. Yeah, this is gonna be a Rockstar experience!
Crooked I continues, “I’m looking forward to finishing out our summer with Tech this fall. People who are just becoming familiar with us will have ample opportunity to see what Slaughterhouse is all about.”
Complex.com called Slaughterhouse “1 of the 21 best rap super groups of all time!” while The New York Press recently quoted, “Slaughterhouse…seeks to do nothing less than hotwire and run away with the rapidly flagging and disintegrating hip hop music industry.”
