More info on “Masters of The Dark Arts”:
According to a recent press release, Masters of Dark Arts will drop on July 31st via Fat Beats with Ill Bill and DJ Lethal handling production. Ill Bill spoke on the new album’s sound and how it differs from their 2009 debut A Brand You Can Trust.

“The new album is a little different from A Brand You Can Trust. I think the production is less polished this time, more raw,” he explained. “It has an unfriendly vibe to it. We went with darker, grimier beats on this one and that influenced the direction of the lyrics and songs overall.”

The album’s release also comes with the unfortunate news that member Everlast has departed from the group. In a statement, Everlast explained that he unable to fully commit his time to La Coka Nostra because his daughter’s struggle with Cystic Fibrosis.

“Due to my commitments with my own label and record and the fact that my daughter has been diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis it has become very difficult to be involved in any other projects,” he explained. “Therefore it is my conclusion after long deliberation and discussion with the guys in the group that waiting until I personally am ready and able to fully dedicate myself to the group isn’t fair to the group so I unfortunately will not be involved in LCN until a time when I can dedicate myself properly to it.”
