The Kottonmouth Kings are currently flying high off the release of their new album "Mile High" which landed in stores last week via Suburban Noize Records. The album debuted on the Billboard Top 200 at #35 and has been hailed as a return to form for the group by fans. The band has released their new video for the track "Get Out The Way" from "Mile High" online at http://bit.ly/P0yJKG .
"The song 'Get Out The Way' is a fusion of rip-hop and dubstep. We took some classic So-Cal punk and bridged that into a hip-hop dubstep section for the verses," says Brad X. "It was a 2012 twist on the rip-hop style we created. We like to push the boundaries and stay original with our music. Crowds go bananas when we play that song live."
Kottonmouth Kings are currently out on the road with Prozak, Big B and Moonshine Bandits, smashing crowds every night from coast to coast on The Mile High Tour.

“The Process” is a web-series that zeros in on the various methods artists use to reach a creative means. From writing, rhyming, how a beat is produced, to how they actually record-- everyone has a process! Episode One of “The Process” sheds some light on Skyzoo’s process, as he writes and records a verse to Nina B’s “718” (which also includes Action Bronson) from her recently released mixtape “Titles Are Played Out!”
