The talented – if controversial – band of merry west coast misfits Odd Future are set to make a splash this coming fall with a nationwide tour set to coincide with all of the many upcoming releases from the camp starting next month. After teasing a new track “Elimination Chamber” featuring Earl Sweatshirt, Vince Staples and Action Bronson earlier this week, the crew announced today (July 18th) that pro-reefer rapper Domo Genesis will release his collaborative mix tape with Alchemist, No Idols, on August 1st.
Fans will only need to wait a couple of months for the release of Hodgy Beats and Left Brain’s – collectively known as Mellowhype – third album, Numbers, which drops on October 2nd A week after, hardcore punk band and Odd Future signees Trash Talk will release a highly anticipated fourth album, 119. The barrage of product doesn’t stop as OF’s de facto leader Tyler, The Creator will release the follow up to last year’s Goblin with Wolf – the gravel-voiced rapper and producer’s third album will drop some time in November.
Longtime crew member Mike G is also gearing up for his first proper debut LP, however he does not have a firm release date or title for the project. Just in time for all the new music, the Gang is hitting the road with the Camp Flog Gnaw National Tour kicking off in Norfolk, VA at the end of August. The month-long tour ends in the crew’s backyard of Los Angeles, culminating with the first ever Odd Future Carnival – we can’t imagine what twisted treats Tyler and the gang have in store for fans on that one. Additionally, OF side group The Internet (Syd tha Kid, Matt Martians) doing a quick east coast tour with the quirky Kilo Kish before joining the larger tour.
