Needless to say, Run The Jewels’ new album is one of our most highly anticipated of 2014. The first joint record between El-P and Killer Mike was fantastic, one of the best albums of 2013 (no to mention that it was released as a free download via Fools Gold), and the first song we heard from RTJ2, Blockbuster Night Part 1,” lived up our expectations.

We had previously learned that Rage Against The Machine legend Zach De La Rocha (who raps on the record, according to a tweet from El-P) and Travis Barker were working on the new album, and now the tracklist confirms their appearances, as well as those of BOOTS and Diane Coffee. RTJ2 will be out October 28 on Mass Appeal, and the duo will be heading on an extensive North American tour starting in October, with support from Ratking on the majority of their dates. See all the details below.

Killer Mike has also recently been outspoken about the ongoing situation in Ferguson, Missouri, writing on Instagram, penning an editorial for Billboard, and going on both CNN and Fox News. See all that here.

UPDATE: You can now buy tickets for the Run The Jewels tour and download “Blockbuster Night Part. 1” here.
