The Roots Hit The Road, Ready 10th Album

Hip-hop mainstays The Roots can't seem to sit still, as the group is set to once again go out on tour in support of their latest LP, Rising Down. The album is scheduled to hit stores on April 29 on Def Jam and will be the Philly collective's 10th full-length offering. The follow-up to 2006's Grammy-nominated set Game Theory, Rising Down will include the single "Birthday Girl" featuring Patrick Stump of Fall Out Boy and will also include the songs "75 Bars" and "Get Busy," which have already been leaked to the internet.

The Roots crew will begin a string of dates later this month, which will include a number of college campuses and music festivals. Their first date is scheduled for March 29 at Millikin University in Decatur, IL.
