It's with great excitement that we're happy to announce bassist Stephen "Thundercat" Bruner is poised to release his follow up to our favorite jazz album of 2011, The Golden Age of Apocalypse. The album, which follows the same thematic title, Apocalypse, goes with the same "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" formula; the album much like its predecessor is produced by Flying Lotus and will be released on Lotus' Brainfeeder label on July 9. Check out the tracklist, upcoming tour dates and stream a song from Apocalypse, "Heartbreaks + Setbacks" (co-written & co-produced by Flying Lotus, Brainfeeder label mate Mono/Poly, and Thundercat), after the jump. Get hype. Shenanigans are coming.
