From the press release:

California's reining rip-hop originators, Kottonmouth Kings have long been a cornerstone of one of today's most radical music movements. Combining mind-bending sonics, and fusing hip-hop, punk rock, and classic soul, The Kings have innovated and pioneered a unique signature sound that has set them apart from the pack and has fueled the band's longevity and enduring popularity with a diverse international fan base. Kottonmouth Kings have proved their lasting staying power, building on a powerful DIY ethos and redefining the meaning of a self-empowered group by running their own company, touring and releasing albums on their own terms. Kottonmouth Kings will unleash their thirteenth studio album, Mile High Club, later this summer via the group's own Suburban Noize Records.Where most rappers celebrate the urban lifestyle with the same old themes and images, Twiztid peels away the gloss and exposes the innards. The demented duo, Monoxide and Jamie Madrox, take the hard edge of theatrical rock-and-roll and temper it with gritty hip-hop to create a musical monstrosity so dangerously real it must be hidden with face paint! These two aren't casual gangsters, but rather, they have painted personas that allow them to explore the darkest corners of the human psyche, from superhero fantasies to horror film legacies. With their ruthless raps, most recently heard on Heartbroken & Homicidal, the duo may explore every recess of their audience's experiences, every sentimental reflection, and every sinister urge. By becoming something unreal, Monoxide and Jamie Madrox are free to be real. Whether it's on-stage devastation, or home stereo infiltration, Twiztid's music will take you somewhere you've never been before. The scariest part is when you don't want to come back…
