It’s been three years since Eyedea & Abilities dropped their last album, 2004’s underrated E&A. Since then, both have been relatively quiet. Last year, Eyedea helmed the all-freestyle rap band Face Candy’s This is Where We Were. And DJ Abilities, well…like I said, both dudes seemingly disappeared from the scene.
Last August, the Minneapolis duo performed their first show together in three years, and announced that they were working on a new album. Select audiences around the country will get a taste of the new material when they head out on Appetite for Distraction, a monthlong tour. Supporting acts include Twin Cities prospects Abzorbr and Sector7g.
