Ill Bill Delayed

(PR) ILL BILL regretfully announces that his forthcoming sophomore effort, The Hour of Reprisal, has been pushed back until early 2008. The hour-long album, which is to be accompanied by a full-length DVD of ILL BILL live at the legendary (and tragically shuttered) CBGB, features guest appearances by the likes of Raekwon the Chef, B-Real, Immortal Technique, Tech N9ne and Necro, as well as members of the Bad Brains, Killswitch Engage, La Coka Nostra, Jedi Mind Tricks, HERO and Sepultura/Soulfly. Tracks for the set were composed by Muggs, DJ Premier, Lethal, Necro, T-Ray, Cynic, and Sicknature, with a majority of the production coming courtesy of ILL BILL himself. Bill offers I am extremely proud of this albumit is the most personal music Ive ever made. He adds this record is an uncompromising snapshot of my entire life and the world around me at this very moment.

Originally scheduled for release on September 11th via Bills own Uncle Howie Records in cooperation with Perfect Game Recording Co./Warner Music Group, The Hour of Reprisal did not hit the stores as scheduled due to WMGs decision to discontinue the Perfect Game label. However, ILL BILL and former Perfect Game general manager Howie Abrams have joined forces to find an appropriate home for the album. They are currently in discussions with a number of interested parties and plan to announce a new release date within the next few weeks.

In the meantime, ILL BILL remains busy with a number of exciting projects, not to mention his upcoming 39 city tour supporting Twiztid. The trek begins in Cleveland, Ohio on September 25th and comes to an end on November 10th in Columbus, Ohio. Bill is also putting the finishing touches on the debut album by La Coka Nostra, the new group featuring all 3 original members of House of Pain, ILL BILL, Bostons Slaine and native New Yorker Big Left.
