Atmosphere in Vancouver on tour for their seventh studio album, Fishing Blues.
The Minneapolis hiphop duo is comprised of rapper/lyricist Slug and producer Ant.
According to a press release, Fishing Blues earned the #1 spot on Billboard’s Current Rap Albums, Top Internet and Independent Current Albums charts when it was released in August. It includes appearances from hip-hop luminaries DOOM, Aesop Rock, Kool Keith, The Grouch and more.
From the press release: “Ant and Slug have been making music together as Atmosphere for over 20 years. The impact of their music has been at the root of their long-term success, and their continued rigorous touring and performance schedule has been the vessel for engraining these stories and the legacy of the music into their fan base.”
Earlier this month, the duo released a video for the track “The Sh*t That We’ve Been Through”. Andrew Melby (1Light Films) directed the video, which plays on the track’s lyric “A little ink with a kiss and a wink.” Watch the video here.
