Atmosphere announce new album, The Family Sign

If one thing can make all these blizzards feel warmer, it’s the knowledge that Minnesotan hip hop kings Atmosphere have a new album coming out this spring. Due for release April 12th through Rhymesayers, The Family Sign is said to hear Slug “metaphorically touching on themes of fatherhood, loss, love, disappointment and jubilation and tailoring them to the instrumental frame work provided by Ant.” The duo will be backed by keyboardist Erick Anderson and guitarist Nate Collis.

Below, you can check out the album’s first single, “Minnesota Nice”, as well as peep all of the group’s upcoming tour dates. Spoiler: Minnesota proves pretty lucky.
