The Insane Clown Posse made their festival comeback this past weekend at Bamboozle, alongside acts like Lil Wayne, Bruno Mars and Wiz Khalifa. Now, Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope are set to make their musical return, too, with their upcoming album, The Mighty Death Pop! .
The LP marks ICP’s second time working with longtime producer Mike E. Clark since their reconciliation. And while the duo haven’t locked in a release date yet, they say they aren’t looking to rush things, either.
“It don’t have no official release date for right now, but we ain’t rushing nothing,” Shaggy told MTV News at Bamboozle. “We’re taking our time. We’re doing what we do in the studio, coming out with the best record that we can do and, right now, it’s gravy man.”
Each album the Detroit duo has released is referred to as a “joker’s card,” which means Mighty Death Pop! is the second joker’s card of the second deck. The group released a “face” last year during their annual Hallowick Clown Show in their hometown; that was believed to be the face of the Mighty Death Pop!. But Violent J said there’s more to the story.
“There’s actually two faces of the Mighty Death Pop!. As soon as you see the other face, it will totally make sense. Right now, I know that’s confusing, but when you see the other face, it’s sort of a before-and-after deal. You’ll see them both together and you’ll totally get it.
