New York, NY (March 5, 2013) – Ghostface Killah and Adrian Younge announce the Twelve Reasons To Die Tour in support of their new album to be released via Soul Temple Records distributed by RED Music on April 16. Ghostface Killah will perform backed by Adrian Younge’s band Venice Dawn. The 49 city national tour kicks off on March 14th at SXSW in Austin TX and will run thru early June. A full listing of tour dates can be found below and at VeniceDawn.com.


Twelve Reasons To Die, a groundbreaking concept album conceived and created by Younge that follows Tony Starks (one of Ghostface’s alter egos), as a soldier for the 12 Delucas, a 1960’s-era Italian crime family. But when Starks leaves the family, an epic story unfolds like a vintage horror film with gangster elements. It’s a gritty story of good verse evil that walks the line of the supernatural accented by Ghostface’s grandiose, vivid storytelling.

Sonically, Younge constructs a distinct aural realm for Twelve Reasons To Die. It’s music based on the break, the sonic foundation of hip-hop culture. But Younge traverses new ground by incorporating elements of what a composer would have used while making music in the 1960s: live strings, horns and drums. He also recorded the songs on 2-inch tape, giving each track a sonic heft and depth virtually non-existent in modern music.

This is the third release from Soul Temple Records, a company whose mission is to release quality music coupled with packages engaging multiple elements of the creative community.

With Ghosface’s riveting stories and Younge’s deft arrangements, Twelve Reasons To Die arrives as an event record, a modern throwback to rap’s Golden Era. “I wanted this album to be the album that went back and started things all over,” Younge says. “I wanted to be the first person to really bring this to hip-hop. I want to bring that organic element back to hip-hop. I’m fortunate enough that I was chosen to be that person to do it.”

Wu-Tang Clan architect RZA was the one who chose Younge for this musical mission. As executive producer of the project, RZA added his touch to the album by providing Younge with suggestions, direction and the confidence to execute his vision at the highest level.

The album will be available in various configurations including a standard CD, a deluxe double CD with instrumentals and a mini comic book, plus a digital deluxe version with instrumentals and digital comic book, multiple vinyl formats and a cassette. The album, including limited edition deluxe bundles, is available for pre-order at soultemplemusic.bandcamp.com.

To visually flesh out the dark and gritty world of Twelve Reasons, Soul Temple Records has partnered with Black Mask Studios to produce a 6-issue comic book series and collected graphic novel featuring striking visuals and an intriguing dual-narrative structure with contributions from a host of stellar comic book artists.

Twelve Reasonsis the latest landmark chapter in the career of Ghostface Killah. Since emerging in 1993 as one of the most mysterious members of the rap supergroup Wu-Tang Clan, the man also known as Tony Starks has become one of rap’s most charismatic and flamboyant artists. His distinctive vocabulary and vivid storytelling made his Ironman and Supreme Clientele albums two of the most revered releases of their eras.

Adrian Younge represents the next generation of black music producers. His acclaimed Something About April album from his group Venice Dawn is a high note on a resume that also includes composing the music for the acclaimed film Black Dynamite and an album with the legendary soul group The Delfonics.

“I want to be known as a composer, not a beat-maker,” he says. “I want to be known as a composer for modern soul music.” Younge’s background has made him particular about how he’s viewed.

With Twelve Reasons To Die, Ghostface Killah and Adrian Younge have delivered the next level of modern soul music. It’s an experience that contains classic musicianship from a hip-hop perspective buoyed by rhymes from one of rap’s elite wordsmiths wrapped up in a genre-defining concept album.

“I want this album to change what people think about hip-hop,” Younge says.

I like the breakbeat, the sound is definitely what I like most about what I heard so far. When the beat changes Ghost kills it.

This album is going to be so great...

Adrian Younge + Ghostface is the best thing to happen since RZA + Ghostface.

The second part is good, not great. The first part is an embarrassment.
Over percussed. If these two songs (Rise of GFK) are the best this album has to offer, we're in trouble.

You have too much wax in your ears. Why don't you go bump some Lil' B or Young Berg. This is as real as it gets. First part is a 8.5/10. the second part 9.5/10. Fuck what you think biatchhhhhh

Not everyone is broke like you. Real fans like us will support. I bought that KP abum and i love it. KP, Ghost and them are reppin' the same crew. Saying that this track would be throw away tracks on PWOWR is plain stupid. You dont have to buy it if you dont like it; idiot.
