Fresh off the startling and undeniable impact of its lead single "FILM THE POLICE," B. DOLAN makes an unexpected return to drop off the "HOUSE OF BEES VOL. II" LP. Adding to what's already been an incredible summer for indie rap, Dolan and UK mixmaster BUDDY PEACE present 60 minutes of finely crafted material to shatter all expectations conjured by the word 'mixtape.'
HOUSE OF BEES VOL. II uses the lost art of the mixtape and its unconstrained format to return Dolan to his roots as an emcee while combining the raw honesty of 2008's "The Failure" with the impeccable execution and bombastic feel of 2010's "Fallen House, Sunken City."
The album features numerous guest slots, including production from REANIMATOR and MUX MOOL of Ghostly International. Also popping their heads in to lend bars are TOKI WRIGHT of Rhymesayers, noted Pittsburgh activist JASIRI X, and Strange Famous Records labelmates METERMAIDS.
The mix also features a new joint with Dolan's longtime friend, collaborator and label-head SAGE FRANCIS under the duo's newly-coined group name EPIC BEARD MEN. "2BAD" by the group will be the album's
first single (video dropping soon at http://StrangeFamousRecords.com)
B. Dolan is currently gearing up for a summer of big performances, most notably a slot for his "CHURCH OF LOVE & RUIN" tour at Bestival.
