It’s been about over three years since Minneapolis-based hip-hop collective Doomtree released their last proper album, 2011’s No Kings. But it looks as though that’s all about to change, as the group’s just shared a brand new song called “.38 Airweight”, along with a very exciting music update detailing their comeback.
“We’ve spent this summer writing and recording a brand new full-length crew album, and wanted to drop something new off now while we work on putting the finishing pieces together in the studio over the next couple months,” Doomtree wrote on their website. “Plus it’s the official six year anniversary of the very first Doomtree self-titled album, so the timing seemed about right. Consider this a gentle reminder that WE’RE BACK AT IT.”
Over flickering beats and blitzing synths, Doomtree sound as confident as ever on “.38 Airweight”, armed with brawny lines about “sinking ships” and fighting to “outlast your peers”. Listen in below.
In related news, next month the collective will release Doomtree: Every Single Day, a 500-page, limited-edition book that chronicles their decades-long career.
