MSTRKRFT Album Gets Release Date
- Words: Jennifer Marston
Nearly three years after the release of MSTRKRFT's debut album, The Looks, Toronto's Jesse F. Keeler and Al-P are ready to unveil their follow-up on March 17, via Dim Mak/Downtown Records.
Keeler has said in the past that the new album, which the duo's dubbed Fist of God, would be a record of "darker, underground disco and house, with elements of American rock music." He and Al-P have also put their taste for Bay Area hip-hop to good use, with E-40, Freeway, and Lil' Mo all making contributions to the album. Elsewhere, Ghostface Killah, John Legend, and N.O.R.E. make cameos.
In the meantime, the two are spending the month of December playing several shows in the U.S. and Canada, undoubtedly showcasing material from Fist of God.
