Bone Thugs-N-Harmony to Head Out on National Tour

"Uni5: The World's Enemy" Reunion Album Out April 27

BURBANK, CA--(Marketwire - March 11, 2010) - Grammy Award winning hip-hop group Bone Thugs-N-Harmony will launch a 34-city U.S. tour this spring in support of their long-awaited reunion album titled "Uni5: The World's Enemy" set for an April 27 release on BTNH Worldwide/Asylum/Warner Bros. Records. Krayzie, Wish, Layzie and Flesh-N-Bone will kick off the tour on March 24 in Minneapolis, MN and wrap-up in Tuscon, AZ on May 3.

The album is a 15-year reunion that chronicles the unity and adversity issues that have rifled the group's successful, often turbulent career while opening up a broader discussion on how these same themes manifest themselves in society. "You go through things to make you stronger," Layzie says. "All your obstacles, all the things you go through that don't seem positive at that particular time are only to get you ready for your next phase of life."

With more than 30 million albums sold worldwide and a very active (almost cult-like) loyal fan base, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony have become one of the most popular hip-hop groups in the genre's history. The recipients of numerous awards and accolades, the Bone Thugs are also the only artists or group to collaborate with icons Eazy-E, 2Pac, Big Pun and the Notorious B.I.G. while they were still alive. These Midwest franchise players, most revered for popularizing staccato rhymes with melodic vocals, have influenced the cadence and delivery of many of today's MCs.

"With the contributions we have made through songs, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony will live forever in music. We've made our mark in history," says Krayzie. "To me, that is the most valuable thing."

Guiding the new chapter in their extraordinary career is new management, Jeremy Geffen of Jeremy Geffen Entertainment, and booking by John Pantle at Agency For The Performing Arts.
