Shwayze & Cisco have announced a new album and some summer tour plans and announced that the duo now officially goes by the name Shwayze & Cisco Adler (abbrev. Shwayze & Cisco) to express the true nature of the collaboration.
Their new album, Island In The Sun, will be released on August 16th by Bananabeat Records and the duo will hit the road with Slightly Stoopid and Rebelution on the Seedless Summer Tour 2011 tour, starting July 21 in Missoula, MT., running through August 27 in Chicago, IL.
"We just want people to know that 2011 is the summer of Shwayze and Cisco," says Adler. "We've rekindled the magic between us. Without major label constraints, we're free to do things our way. Our collaboration is key. We consider ourselves a career band."
As for the album: "The core of this record was just us jamming together," says Shwayze. "The little break we took from the last record, made us each stronger in our areas. I think we're back to where we were when we started. We've been a duo since day one. Shwayze and Cisco Adler is a better representation of what it really is."
The album, produced by Adler in Bananabeat Studios, will include the title track, a breezy acoustic number, and "Butterflies," a song first previewed on the FREE The W's mixtape released earlier this year. Adler, who has recently worked with Mike Posner, G. Love, and Unwritten Law to name a few, was eager to get back into the studio with his partner in rhyme and write the next chapter in the duo's career.
