The Away Team Set to Release 'Scars & Stripes' Album on Oct. 11th

The Away Team, a hip-hop duo consisting of emcee Sean Boog and producer Khrysis, is set to release their fourth studio LP 'Scars & Stripes' on October 11th through Jamla/It's A Wonderful World Music Group/ Duck Down Music.

The 15-track album, entirely produced by Khrysis, features appearances from Talib Kweli, Phonte, Evidence, and Rapsody amongst others. When Khrysis set out to create the beats for the album he "wanted to go back to the basics with the production, yet maintain a more mature sound to display the growth of The Away Team."

Sean Boog further laments this point by adding "we aren't the same young kids who came into this game not knowing anything. Not only the rap game but the transition into adulthood. The meaning behind 'Scars & Stripes' is going through hard times, ups and downs throughout life and coming out on top. I've gotten a lot more introspective on this album lyrically, especially on songs such as "Road to Redemption," "What Is This" and "Bad News". People will be able to relate to what we are isn't easy for any of us."

On the new album, The Away Team shows diversity in storytelling, while also providing fans that aggressive, in your face music that they are known for. To stay up-to-date with The Away Team make sure to follow @SeanBoog & @Khrysis
