Danny Brown has announced that his forthcoming album will be titled Atrocity Exhibition. The album's title comes from a Joy Division song of the same name, which was released on the band's second LP, Closer. That song takes its name from a book by J.G. Ballard. Brown announced the title via Twitter, and then the following day posted the lyrics to the Joy Division track on his Instagram. Atrocity Exhibition will be Brown's fourth studio album and the follow-up to 2013's Old.
Following the announcement of the album's name, Danny Brown also revealed that he will be going on a North American tour in support of the record. Pitchfork reports, "Fellow Bruiser Brigade member ZelooperZ and Houston rapper Maxo Kream will join Brown on the tour, which has been dubbed "The Exhibition 2016.""
Brown's "The Exhibition 2016" tour will begin September 14th in Philadelphia. From there, he will head out across the continent making stops in Boston, Minneapolis, Los Angeles, Austin, and many other cities. The tour is scheduled to come to an end on November 5th in Cleveland, Ohio.
