Public Enemy have announced a run of Australian tour dates to coincide with their Groovin The Moo 2012 tour. The announcement comes on the back of two new studio albums this year. Most Of My Heroes Still Don’t Appear On No Stamp in June and The Evil Empire Of Everything, which will follow in September.
Since the release of their epic debut album Yo Bum Rush The Show in 1987, legendary rap group and social political-icons, have been making the music that makes the world listen.
The influence of Public Enemy extends well beyond hip hop. The group has been cited by artists as diverse as Nirvana, Nine Inch Nails, Björk, Tricky, Prodigy, Ben Harper and Aphex Twin, and their 1991 collaboration with thrash metal outfit Anthrax helped to create the ‘rap metal’ genre.
Their 1990 album Fear of a Black Planet was selected for preservation in the USA Library of Congress in 2005.
Celebrate 25 years of the uncompromising Public Enemy this May.
