In 1993, Wu-Tang Clan released their classic debut album Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers). Twenty years later, the collective is celebrating that major milestone in rap history with a new album this summer and select tour dates.
Rappers RZA, GZA, Method Man, Raekwon, Ghostface Killah, Inspectah Deck, U-God and Masta Killa announced that they will release a new album in July titled A Better Tomorrow. The record is their first since the 2007 release 8 Diagrams.
Along with the announcement, the Wu revealed a slew of tour dates in the UK and France, according to Pitchfork. Sadly for us, they're only hitting up four North American festivals—including Coachella this weekend!—and no other U.S. shows have been announced. According to a press release, the shows will feature "all living members from the influential group performing onstage together." (R.I.P. ODB)
