    Time to stage a Coup.

    Relentless firebrand hip-hop outfit The Coup will be taking their notorious live show on the road for a series of highly anticipated dates on the first half of their North American Tour. Dates for the second half of the tour, which begins in late January, will be announced soon. The Oakland group will be performing in support of their new album Sorry to Bother You, which hits stores October 30.

    The Coup consists of vocalist-writer and activist Boots Riley, Silk-E, and a hard-hitting cadre of musicians. DJ Pam the Funkstress also throws down, but only at select shows. The new record is an audacious new work by a visionary band. The tracks merge danceable beats, punk urgency and the astute social commentary of hip-hop to craft a refreshingly unique sound that draws from the past but never sounds anything but futuristic.

    Watch a clip for their rocking anthem of insurrection "Magic Clap" below:
