California based hip-hop/punk rock hybrid are sitting high on their own musical cloud of stoney vibrations. After breaking the Billboard Top 40 with no support from radio or MTV with their last studio album, the Kings showed the world why they are one of the biggest success stories in independent music today. On August 28th, 2007, The Kottonmouth Kings are looking to get a little higher with the release of Cloud 9. The group’s ninth studio album features 22 songs of musical mayhem that continues to push the group into uncharted territories.
"We really stepped it up on Cloud 9. We felt we needed to make a statement and take it to the next level," says frontman Brad X. "As we continue to evolve we don’t need to reinvent ourselves, we just magnify ourselves and continue to expand who we are and what we do. Cloud Nine is a more intense record but the climate of our world is more intense."
Cloud 9 also features some high-profile guest appearances from Cypress Hill's B-Real on "Ridin' High" and Sen Dog on "Darkside,” and "Think 4 Yourself" featuring Insane Clown Posse. The album also includes an appearance by Tech N9ne on “City 2 City,” which has already become one of the most requested songs on Sirius Satellite Radio FACTION channel, while the video for the track has been viewed over 150,000 times within a month of its release.
"I think it's the sickest adventure yet for Kottonmouth Kings," Daddy X says of the group's ninth studio album. "Musically, there's some sinister hip-hop stuff on there," Daddy X said of the album. "There are definitely some real mellow, stoney songs on there. And then there are some rip-hop songs, where we fuse punk rock and hip-hop. We brought that back on this record for some songs. It's just a classic Kottonmouth Kings record with a lot of diverse styles on it."
