The Roots Prepare New "Synth-Heavy" Album, Kick Off Tour Tonight

The Roots

The Roots are already working on a follow-up to the six-month old Game Theory, their Def Jam debut. The new album is expected in October 2007 or February 2008, and ?uestlove reports that "We are using a lot of synthesizer, but I don't know if I could call this the electronic album or not."

The Roots, along with Lupe Fiasco, will hit the Lyric Opera House in Baltimore on March 8, and DAR Constitution Hall in DC on March 9.
