“the kind of ferocious audacity that made them household names in the first place.”

Billboard

“daring and undeniably moving work”

Consequence of Sound

“a testament to Brockhampton’s singular sonic world”

EW

“top-notch chaos — a frenetic, nerve-racking stomper”

The New York Times

“they return more attuned to one another than ever before”

The New Yorker

“As weird and chaotic as you’d hope”

PAPER

“their most cohesive project yet”

Rolling Stone

“From the Four Seasons through to One Direction, never has the pop construct of a “boyband” had as much to say, and as many offbeat ways of saying it, as does Brockhampton on ‘Roadrunner.’”

Variety

[New York, NY – April 13, 2021] On the heels of releasing their new album ROADRUNNER: NEW LIGHT, NEW MACHINE last week, BROCKHAMPTON returns to share a video for standout “COUNT ON ME.” Co-directed by Kevin Abstract and Dan Streit, the video stars Lil Nas X and frequent collaborator Dominic Fike as lovers on vacation, the pair tenderly enjoying their solitude until hallucinations take their day towards the surreal. The video is the second from ROADRUNNER following “BUZZCUT” featuring Danny Brown, which The New York Times called “top-notch chaos — a frenetic, nerve-racking stomper,” and upholds the group’s ability to create challenging, boundary-breaking visuals that made them one of their generation’s biggest and most creative powerhouses today.

ROADRUNNER: NEW LIGHT, NEW MACHINE features the likes of Danny Brown, A$AP Rocky, A$AP Ferg, Charlie Wilson, and JPEGMAFIA next to newcomers like Baird and fellow Corpus Christi rapper SoGone SoFlexy, who is signed to Kevin Abstract and Romil Hemnani’s new label, Video Store. Over the past few weeks the band have been teasing the album with trailers featuring The RZA and Rick Rubin, culled from the band’s conversations with each of the acclaimed producers while recording the record, which is available now in various digital and physical configurations here.  All CDs will include four exclusive bonus tracks not available on streaming services.

Following the commercial success of GINGER and its standout single, “SUGAR,” BROCKHAMPTON’s lives were knocked off the tracks as the world shut down last March. Over the following year, the members of the group found themselves further removed from each other than they had been since moving to Los Angeles together in 2016, each grappling with the weight of isolation, identity and unexpected personal loss. As fate would have it, the headwinds of 2020 served as a potent reminder of the strength of friendship. The album’s tone reflects the highs and lows of the period from which it was born — both tragic and celebratory, built around the recurring theme of finding “the light” in your life. As such, ROADRUNNER: NEW LIGHT, NEW MACHINE is equal parts braggadocio and empathy — the once young, wide-eyed boyband returns more self aware and self assured than ever before.

The creative process for ROADRUNNER also found BROCKHAMPTON opening its doors to a wider group of collaborators for the first time. The opening track on the album, “BUZZCUT,” features a show-stopping Danny Brown verse as well as vocals from in-house producer Jabari Manwa, who is stepping out as a vocalist and performer in 2021. The BROCKHAMPTON that emerges on ROADRUNNER: NEW LIGHT, NEW MACHINE is one working at the height of their powers and marks an important inflection point in the band’s career.
