This came as a curve ball for a Thursday afternoon. Scroobius Pip has announced his solo album Distraction Pieces on September 19th on Speech Development. Don't fret though in case you're wondering about his old partner in crim Dan Le Sac, they'll begin work on a new album in the new year so before that take a look at the album deets.
With the help of producers Yilla and Worgie he's roped in cso colaborations from some big hitters. The album will feature Renholder (aka Danny Lohner NIN / A Perfect Circle), Richard Russell (XL), Steve Mason, Sage Francis, P.O.S. Zane Lowe, B Dolan and Aupheus. Th ealbum is said to be a collision of Punk, Rock and Hip Hop influences. If you want to be all up on this, and who could blame you, he'll be appearing with new live band at the Hoxton Bar & Kitchen on 18th August! Be there.
