KOCH Records to Release Brand New Studio Album by Bone Thugs-N-Harmony

Download DJBooth's new App, The PLUG NEW YORK, NY -- KOCH Records is proud to announce the upcoming release of a brand new Bone Thugs-N-Harmony studio album to be released on September 19th, 2006. This self-titled album will be the sixth Bone album in a stellar career in which all of the group's previous albums have gone either gold or platinum. This album reunites Bone with KOCH Records' General manager Alan Grunblatt, who quarterbacked the marketing and promotion on their multi-platinum albums "Creepin On Ah Come Up" and "E. 1999 Eternal."

"I can't tell you how excited I am to be working again with Bone Thugs-N-Harmony," Grunblatt states. "I saw them perform a cappella in Easy E's office 3 weeks after they got off the bus from Cleveland. When 'E. 1999' debuted #1 on the Billboard charts and scanned 340,000 units the first week, it was one of the proudest days of my life. I was there when we stripped the Crossroads remix to the album, taking it from 2 million to 5 million sold. I also did the Mo Thugs deal with the group, scoring 2 platinum albums with the Mo Thugs family and gold albums for Krayzie Bone and Bizzy bone. When I started here at KOCH my first album was a Mo Thugs compilation which scanned 50,000 units week one, launching our new hip hop venture with a bang. My relationship with the group has been a long and successful one. I simply love this new album which drops in September. It is full of the melodic hood anthems the group is famous for and should return them to the top of the charts."

The first single is called "Fire," which will be serviced to radio in July. This is Bone's first album as a trio (Bizzy bone no longer in the group). The Swizz Beats-Bone album is currently in production and will be released by Interscope in the future.
