2016 marks the long-awaited debut album from New York’s Flatbush Zombies. Following in the footsteps of acclaimed mixtape predecessors D.R.U.G.S. (2012) and Better Off Dead (2013), 3001: A Laced Odyssey is a career-defining album for the Brooklyn trio.
Produced entirely by Erick “Arc” Elliott, the twelve-song opus features emcees Elliott, Meechy Darko, and Zombie Juice in prime form. The moody and introspective record – with flourishes of their trademark dark humor – is what their legions of diehard fans have come to expect. Non-album promo track “Glorious Thugs” set the tone for the project, garnering over 1.7 million streams in less than one week. To best capture these larger than life personalities, the group enlisted the services of David Nakayama (Marvel Adventures, Deadpool, Avengers AI, Big Hero 6) to create their epic comic book LP cover.
3001: A Laced Odyssey will be supported by a 45 city U.S. headline tour in the spring, and followed by an international headline tour in the Fall.
