From URBNET:

PR: Nation Ruckus - "Against the Wall" (f/ Sir Jay, Jonathan Emile)

Fans can download this new summer single in anticipation for NR’s debut album Boombox Manifesto dropping September 2012 .

As summer is about to hit our doorstep, Montreal’s own Nation Ruckus drops the new single ''AGAINST THE WALL''. In pure MTL fashion, the track is an eclectic mash-up which features reggae artist Sir Jay and rapper Jonathan Emile. For music lovers in need of a sonic fix, the song is now available on iTunes: http://itunes.apple.com/ca/album/against-wall-feat.-sir-jay/id534735638?l=fr .

Catchy yet underground to the fullest, the song is loyal to NR’s signature sound. Perfectly fitting for basement parties and cruises in the ''whip'', the joint is a heavy reggae-influenced rap manifesto. Reminiscent of old school hip hop, it finds NR’s front man (rapper E. aka Milk-E Fresh) spitting socially conscious rhymes over a party beat.

Next Tuesday, Nation Ruckus will be releasing the official music video for ''AGAINST THE WALL''. Directed by In-1 Studios, who produced NR’s previous video for ''Lockdown'' (youtu.be/NQa0Dul9UC4), the clip will showcase NR and its affiliates alongside some of the city’s best dancers.

The group's debut album, Boombox Manifesto, one of this year’s most promising projects is set to drop September 18th under their independent label Big Dreamz Records.

News: Roach Gigz Announces The Bugged Out Tour For September

Roach Gigz is excited to announce his forthcoming headline tour, The Bugged Out Tour. The Bugged Out Tour, kicking off September 7th in San Francisco, will be Roach's second headlining tour in 2012, and will follow the release of Roach's official debut album, Bugged Out, in August. Starting today, three Fan Club Bundles, priced between $25 and $60, will allow fans to pre-purchase show tickets along with three exclusive t-shirts. Fan Club Bundles can be purchased via Roach Gigz' website.

Earlier this year, Roach Gigz headlined his first tour, the Can I Rap Tour, taking him to cities across the West Coast. And while the tour was a great first experience for Roach, he's looking forward to taking everything up a notch with The Bugged Out Tour. "My tour earlier this year was my first time headlining -- it was a stepping stone," says Roach. "I'm looking forward to everything being bigger and better this time around.”

The Bugged Out Tour will also bring a handful of first-time experiences for Roach on the road, including a special hometown performance and a debut performance in Los Angeles, at the famed venue The Roxy, on September 13th. "I'm looking forward to doing Slim's in San Francisco; it's going to be my first headlining show in San Francisco," says Roach, adding that he's also especially looking forward to return dates in Chico and Santa Cruz. "This is also going to be my first time playing in Los Angeles, so I'm really looking forward to that show."

And while the tour is offering Roach a number of exciting experiences, what he's most looking forward to is connecting with fans – and performing for them music from his forthcoming debut album, Bugged Out. "I'm going to be playing a bunch of the new music from Bugged Out on the tour," he says. "I always do the hits, but this time I'm just looking forward to trying out the new music for fans."
