Crazy Town will release their new album, ‘The Brimstone Sluggers’, on 28th August via Membran/The Orchard. Produced by Bret ‘Epic’ Mazur, it is stylistically a follow up to the band’s platinum selling debut, ‘The Gift Of Game’. It features guest appearances by Tom Dumont of No Doubt, Madchild, Bishop Lamont, J. Angel and DJ AM.
A song from the album entitled ‘Born To Raise Hell’ (featuring J Angel & DJ AM) is available as one of the instant grat tracks for fans who pre-order ’The Brimstone Sluggers’ on iTunes here : http://radi.al/BrimstoneSluggers
The song features one of the very last recordings of the late DJ AM, who was a member of Crazy Town until 2001 but tragically passed away in 2009.
Spearheaded by the duo of Seth ‘Shifty Shellshock’ Binzer and Bret ‘Epic’ Mazur, Crazy Town combine hip-hop’s lyrical attitude with the grooves of an alt-rock record. This combination yielded the group a number one hit in 2001, when ‘Butterfly’ topped the Billboard 100 and helped push the band’s debut album, ‘The Gift Of Game’, to platinum status and a main stage slot at Ozzfest. The group’s follow-up, ‘Dark Horse’, was released in 2002 and included the rock hit ‘Drowning’. More recently, Crazy Town frontman Seth Brooks Binzer (aka Shifty Shellshock) has garnered attention for his appearances on VH1’s Celebrity Rehab and Sober House reality shows.
