Min­neapol­is hip-hop pion­eers Atmo­sphere have released their new album So Many Oth­er Real­it­ies Exist Sim­ul­tan­eously via Rhymesay­ers Enter­tain­ment

There’s an unmis­tak­able sense of unease from the out­set that con­tin­ues to evolve through­out the record, an almost unnerv­ing excav­a­tion of para­noia inspired by the gen­er­al mal­aise of a pan­dem­ic weary soci­ety full of civil unrest. The ten­sion in these songs is palp­able, but the album’s mere pres­ence is a test­a­ment to the hope that has to under­pin even the most stressed out epi­phanies. 

On the new album, rap­per Slug says “we made a new album where we addressed a bunch of items we found in stacks of mov­ing boxes that had become fur­niture. writ­ten and recor­ded over the dur­a­tion of 2020 dis­tan­cing / para­noia of 2021. Mixed and mastered dur­ing stolen moments of 2022.”

Along­side the album release, the duo have shared a new Marmo Films dir­ec­ted video for “Hold­ing My Breath.” On the video Slug adds, “We lift our juice boxes to the sky in cel­eb­ra­tion of the Sad Clown’s return. Have you hugged your ther­ap­ist today?” Watch the video below, as well as pre­vi­ously released videos for “Big­ger Pic­tures,” and lead single “Okay,” which was praised by Ste­reogum, Con­sequence, Brook­lyn Vegan, 2DopeBoyz, and FLOOD Magazine who wrote that “Atmo­sphere bal­ance optim­ism, pess­im­ism, real­ism, and all oth­er ‑isms on their latest single.”  

The duo recently announced Sum­mer­time 2023, a North Amer­ic­an tour with Slightly Stoop­id, Sub­lime with Rome, and The Move­ment, which comes on the heels of their European tourThe Con­Tour. The European tour begins at the Elec­tric Ball­room in Lon­don, UK on 11 May and fin­ish­ing in Oslo, NO at Park­teatret on 21 May. This will mark their first Europe tour since 2019, Slug adds “…it’s been four years too long, we are com­ing back to Europe to make party, this May!” Atmo­sphere will be joined by HEBL and spe­cial guests.
