Insane Clown Posse will release two albums this year, the first album Lost, will be put out on April 28th. The other album entitled Found will come out three months later. “The Lost album is a really intense, dark record. There’s no comedy on it, and ICP is known for comedy. It’s about life without hope or without faith, and it’s just fast and pulse-pounding beats and dark,” Violent J of Insane Clown Posse told Billboard magazine. Violent J also said the album is about worrying about death, and being lost in the world by not having God in your life, and so the project is seen through negative lenses.
On the contrary, the Found album is seen with a more optimistic outlook. Violent said the project is a lot more positive. “We bring the comedy aspect of it and songs about sex and good times and the funny songs and the upbeat songs. We’re having a much better time in the studio for that one,” Violent J said. Both projects represent what he and his partner, Shaggy 2 Dope, are dealing with these days. “I think we’re both somewhere in the middle of Lost and Found. I’m not gonna lie. I feel like I’m looking for God sometimes,” Violent J told Billboard. He continued, “I would love to all of a sudden be saved and feel all happy and everything. I’m not there. I’m looking for it. I feel like I’m in the right direction.” Violent J believes this project will help him, Shaggy, and anyone who feels lost in this world. “I think it’s going to help me and Shaggy as people and getting closer to being in a better place ourselves. I feel good singing if you’re lost you’re feel like this, and if you’re found, you’re gonna feel like this,” Violent J explained.
Found is almost complete, and it will feature tracks from a variety of producers. The band will not go on their planned 20th anniversary tour of their Riddle Box album, as of now. The Insane Clown Posse will instead go on the road some time in the spring. The band recently lost a lawsuit against the federal government that claimed their fans, also known as the Juggalos, were being targeted because they have jewelry or tattoos with the Insane Clown Posse’s symbol. The lawsuit claims they are being targeted by the FBI as a criminal gang, and the band is currently appealing the judge’s decision. No matter what happens, the Posse said they will continue on making music. Violent J also said no one will ever stop them from doing what they love, which is giving the people a fun outlet through their music. Violent J also said the Insane Clown Posse and their loyal Juggalos will grow old together.
