Despite the fact that it was reported that the legendary Wu-Tang Clan will be reuniting on record this year to release a new album called A Better Tomorrow, there may be some unforeseen trouble regarding the project. A strange tweet from the official Wu-Tang Clan Twitter page seemed to indicate that the in-fighting between individual group members has resurfaced. “Well the mighty Wu-Tang Clan let there solo managers ruin the 20th anniversary campaign.,” someone tweeted from the group’s Twitter account today (April 30th.) The group hasn’t released an album since 2008, largely because of in-fighting between the members.
The Killer Bees are back, or at least they will be in coming months to commemorate the 20th anniversary of their debut album. November 9, 1993, the Wu-Tang Clan dropped the critically acclaimed Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers), and if all goes to plann their journey will come full circle this July, when the legendary New York collective says they’re dropping their sixth album. Rumors that the group were in talks about a reunion tour and a new studio album to mark the festive occasion partially comes to fruition with the announcement of A Better Tomorrow. The project is named after song number 10 from the Clan’s second album Wu-Tang Forever. Although there’s been no word on a United States tour, Wu-Tang will hit the UK for two shows this summer for the 20th anniversary: July 25th at O2 Apollo in Manchester and July 26th at O2 Academy, Brixton in London. You can purchase your tickets here. The Clan will also perform at this year’s Coachella Festival in Indio, California, April 14 and 21, and Bonaroo in June. At the moment, very little is known about the album, so be sure to check back with BLP as information becomes readily available.
