Hear Shabazz Palaces’ New Song #CAKE Now!

You can now listen to Shabazz Palaces’ “#CAKE,” the latest offering from the group’s forthcoming 7-suite, 18-track Lese Majesty, available worldwide on CD / 2xLP / DL July 28th & 29th via Sub Pop. The Not-the-Video video embedded within this blogpost features THEESatisfaction’s Catherine Harris-White and artwork from Christian Petersen of I Want You Magazine (See Pitchfork news story June 23rd).

Shabazz Palaces 2014 summer tour schedule in support of Lese Majesty now includes a performance at Brooklyn’s AFROPUNK Festival on August 23rd. Find a current list of tour dates below, and then, if you can, find your way to one of those shows, you’ll be happy you did.

Shabazz Palaces’ Lese Majesty, the follow up to the groups universally acclaimed label debut Black Up, is a sonic mythmap of new black wave and psychedelia, featuring highlights “They Come In Gold”, “Dawn In Luxor,” “#CAKE,” “Ishmael” and “Forerunner Foray.”

Lese Majesty is available for preorder from Sub Pop Mega Mart, iTunes, and Amazon now.  The double vinyl version is sheathed within a shark skin-like embossed jacket and includes a fold-out poster, and an etching on side D. Preorders from Sub Pop will receive the limited, colored-vinyl Loser Edition of the LP on purple vinyl AND a seven-inch featuring the non-album track “The Palace Slide” b/w “The Palace Slide (Instrumental)” while supplies last. Again, while supplies last. Order soon is what I’m trying to say.
