The disparate sounds of Sole, DJ Pain 1 and Andrew Jackson Jihad collide on “Old Gods Ain’t Dead”, the first video from Sole and Pain 1’s forthcoming Death Drive. Behind metal riffs and Pain 1’s underground-meets-mainstream palette, Sole and Sean Bonnette find common ground in poetry and politics.
Sole describes the new record as “a political rap album executed in a way that eschews the rapper persona of savior/prophet and speaks from the riot line.” He and Pain 1 recently launched an indiegogo campaign to support the project, which is currently in its final week. Perks include an anti-capitalist version of Apples to Apples, lyric tapestries, and an exclusive EP of bonus material.
Death Drive drops in May.
