Shiny New Dates From Run The Jewels

Seeing as how a good portion of Run The Jewels’ upcoming tour is sold out, we thought you’d be happy to know you’ve got a few more opportunities to catch the guys on stage. A third New York concert has been added and the Vancouver show is moving to a bigger venue.

Killer Mike and EL-P surprised fans on Christmas by releasing the digital version of Run The Jewels 3 early. The album is available as a free download at the hip hop duo’s website. Physical editions will be available Jan. 13 in North America and on Jan. 20 internationally.

“Fuck it. We couldn’t help ourselves. It just feels right,” Run The Jewels announced. “After a crazy fucking year and with a full tour about to set off we asked ourselves what we were waiting for… and we just couldn’t come up with a great answer. You’ve been with us since we started this thing and it’s made such a huge difference in our lives to have your energy and love. Thank you. So as a gift to all of you who have allowed us to continue to do what we love: RTJ3. We busted our asses on this one and we think we made something special this round. Grab it for free, buy it on any of the digital platforms you like or stream it. Physical copies will still be dropping in January as announced but until then: enjoy and we will see you on the road!”

Or maybe the surprise release was planned all along? After all, Killer Mike and EL-P recently filmed a skit for “Portlandia” in which they discuss potential surprise album release strategies with Carrie Brownstein and Fred Armisen. The episode airs on IFC on Jan. 5.

Nick Hook and Gangsta Boo are taking over as support for Spark Master Tape, who has dropped off the tour. Previously announced special guests The Gaslamp Killer and Cuz are still on board.
