Published Mar 18, 2015Philadelphia hip-hop crew Jedi Mind Tricks have announced they're getting back together for their first album release in four years. Dubbed The Thief and the Fallen, the outfit's eighth full-length will be delivered June 2 through their own Enemy Soil imprint.
Not much has been revealed behind the release just yet, but it's been confirmed through their website that founders Vinnie Paz and Stoupe have reunited to make their first album together since 2008's A History of Violence. Producer/DJ Stoupe had left the group in 2011, leaving mic tacticians Vinnie Paz and Jus Allah to make that year's Violence Begets Violence with various outside beatmakers.
Meanwhile, Jus Allah left the group in 2014. Tracklisting info has not yet been made available, making it unclear at present time if the rapper appears anywhere on the new album.
While we wait for the full details behind the release, you can check out the cover art up above. Without reading too much into it, one could argue the "fallen" is the passed out skeleton, and the thief is the five-eyed lady.
Jedi Mind Tricks also have a pile of U.S. dates coming up, and you can see all those here.
