CAGE RETURNS WITH LONG AWAITED THIRD ALBUM, FREE BONUS EP DEPART FROM ME LP OUT JUNE 30th ON DEFINITIVE JUX I NEVER KNEW YOU EP COMING THIS SPRING VIA ADULT SWIM / DEF JUX

After a tumultuous year of personal strife and creative frenzy Definitive Jux recording artist Cage (aka Chris Palko) prepares to release his long awaited follow up to 2005’s heralded Hell’s Winter. The new full length album entitled Depart From Me is set to be released on June 30th of this year. The album has been two years in the making and promises to be a harrowing journey through dense lyricism coupled with sparse resonate production by F. Sean (Martin), El-P, Aesop Rock, and Camu Tao (R.I.P.).

On top of creating the full 14 track LP, Cage has prepared a 7 song mega-single/EP of exclusive bonus material, entitled the I Never Knew You EP. Slated for release sometime within next two months, the EP will be available for free download from the good people over at Adult Swim (Cartoon Network) in conjunction with Definitive Jux .

Set to coincide with the release of the free digital EP, Cage will spend February filming the video for “I Never Knew You” in LA with close personal friend Shia Labeouf (making his directorial debut). The video is the first official collaboration between Cage and Labeouf which will ultimately culminate in a full-length feature film based on the rapper’s young life starring Labeouf himself.

In the meantime, Cage has been doing a series of small (almost) secret shows where he has been premiering some of the new album material. He will continue to do so until his first official performance of the year happening at the Biz 3 showcase at SXSW. For updates, videos of live performances and sneak peeks check Cage’s MySpace profile as well as his YouTube page and Def Jux itself. Links below.
