The Lonely Island Is Releasing 'The Wack Album' June 11th

The Lonely Island announced this weekend that their third album, which is called The Wack Album, will be released on June 11th. The musical comedy trio – made up of Andy Samberg, Jorma Taccone, and Akiva Schaffer – released this collective statement in a press release: "We’re decidedly pumped to share another collection of our fake raps with the world. We’ve heard the whole thing and there’s no denying, it exists." Their first album since 2011's Turtleneck & Chain, The Wack Album's title track is "YOLO," which they debuted as an SNL digital short featuring Kendrick Lamar and Adam Levine in January. The Dudes are doing their first-ever live show in conjunction with the album release, playing Chicago's Aragon Ballroom July 15th. The album is available for pre-order now.
