The Roots - "Rising Down"

Those dubious ruffians known as The Roots are back with another studio release titled Rising Down. Drummer and co-producer Ahmir "?uestlove" Thompson calls this "the most incendiary, political album of our career to date." Check tour dates (Summerfest, July 4!), and get yourself a taste of the goods at theroots.com.

While you're at it, you can "Get Busy" to this video:

Rising Down is out 4/29 on Def Jam. ?uestlove and MC Black Thought discuss the album at RollingStone.com.

That synth is serious! Hopefully, this release will be the Roots masterpiece we've all been waiting for.
