In the wake of Ho99o9 (pronounced ‘Horror’) announcing the release of their debut album, ‘United States of Horror’, for May 5, the Newark-based rap-turned-hardcore punk group have announced tour dates for Europe and North America.
They’re also stopping off in The Workman’s Club, Dublin on June 16, doors at 8pm. For tickets to that click here.
They also recently released a video for ‘City Rejects’.
Occupying a space between The Clash, Public Enemy, and Deathgrips, the track takes up a backdrop to an exchange between 8bit and stunningly beautiful hi-resolution.
The video immediately unsettles the eye as racism, police brutality, and mass incarceration are murky and in essence unseen. They are hidden and normalised through the presentation of 8bit graphics and bright pastel background colours too complicated for onlookers to decode.
