Aesop Rock is set to release his sixth full length album, Skelethon, on July 10 via Rhymesayers. It includes guest appearances from Kimya Dawson, Rob Sonic, DJ Big Wiz, Hanni El Khatib (who recently played two NYC shows), and more. The video for album single, "Zero Dark Thirty," is below and you can download it above or stream it below too. The album art and tracklist, and two album trailers are also below.
Aesop Rock will be touring in support of the album with Rob Sonic and DJ Big Wiz this summer after playing Rhymesayer's Soundset Festival later this month in Shakopee, MN. That tour includes Seattle's Capitol Hill Block Party and a NYC show happening on August 3 at Irving Plaza. Tickets for the NYC show go on sale today, Friday (5/11) at 10 AM. All US dates, including the Irving Plaza show, are with San Francisco producer Edison, who remixed a Hail Mary Mallon track (stream below) and Seattle duo Dark Time Sunshine, which is made up of Onry Ozzborn of Rhymesayers group Grayskul and producer Zavala. Aesop, P.O.S., Peegee 13, and DJ Zone were featured on the track "Primor" off their 2010 LP, Vessel. You can stream that track below.

2/3 of Hail Mary Mallon (Rob Sonic and Aesop Rock)
Aesop Rock will head out on tour in May with Rob Sonic & DJ Big Wiz, and though they are billed separately, it means we're getting Hail Mary Mallon aka the crew formed by the trio. The NYC show will happen at Bowery Ballroom on 5/14. Tickets go on sale at noon on Thursday (3/3). All dates and the video for HMM's "D-Up" are below.
Hail Mary Mallon is one of a few active projects for Aesop Rock. He also wrote beats for the San Francisco band Dirty Ghosts (his wife Alyson is a member). Dirty Ghosts, who played their first show last week, will kick of a string of dates with Datarock next week on the West Coast leading up to an appearance at SXSW. Check out a video for "Shout It In" below.
In addition, Aesop Rock has contributed material to the forthcoming Kimya Dawson LP, Thunder Thighs due this summer. Check out "Miami Advice" with Aesop Rock at K Records. Other contributors to Kimya's new album include Nicolai Fraiture, John Darnielle, Thao Nguyen, MURS, Jonah Matranga, Jack Dishel, Angelo Spencer and many other who are all listed below.
