Public Enemy Celebrate 25th Anniversary with Two New Albums

Happy 25th anniversary, Public Enemy! What better way to celebrate rap’s most outspoken band than to release not one, but two new albums funded by the fans

The albums, titled Most of My Heroes Still Don’t Appear on No Stamp and The Evil Empire of Everything, will be available this summer and fall respectively, though exact release dates are not yet available.

Collaborators include Brother Ali, Henry Rollins, Tom Morello and DMC, among others.

Rather than being a large body of work split among two albums, Chuck D said the albums have distinct messages and themes individually.

“They’re twins, fraternal twins—not identical, but they will talk to each other,” he said.

Public Enemy can be seen on May 27 at the Movement Electronic Music Festival in Detroit, Mich., and on July 6 in Gdynia, Poland playing the Heineken Open’er Festival.
