Cannibal Ox promising new album and more shows in 2013 (Knitting Factory show still on sale)
Earlier this week, we mentioned that legendary underground hip hop duo Cannibal Ox are back after a long period of silence and will play a Brooklyn show on December 9 at Knitting Factory. Tickets for that show are still available.
Pigeons & Planes is now reporting that the duo are planning a follow-up to their lone studio album, 2001's The Cold Vein, for a 2013 release. It's not the first time the duo have announced the release of a second album, after having planned one in 2006, that allegedly included production from Pete Rock and RZA. El-P, who produced The Cold Vein said in a facebook post in 2011, "there wont ever be a can ox album produced by me again and thats a fact." Assuming this album actually comes out, here's to hoping El-P goes back on his word.
According to Can Ox member Vast Aire, "We never broke up, but the timing is now right for a new Cannibal Ox LP." He also tweeted that more shows, including some on the west coast, are being scheduled.
