Today, super-duo Jody Fontaine and Baby Boy of the Bay Area’s buzziest and fastest-rising collective AG Club announce their new album Imposter Syndrome. The album is set for release on September 16, 2022 via Epic Records and is available for pre-order today. Watch the video announcement HERE.
Along with the pre-order, AG Club reveal the official tracklisting and album’s cover art, which was designed by acclaimed sculpture and visual artist Johan Drox. In addition, AG Club have revealed the release of 7 limited-edition box sets. Fans will be able to grab Imposer Syndrome CDs along with specially curated items such as shirts, posters, hats, tote bags, and more.
Imposter Syndrome is notably the group’s first studio album to be released by a major label and comes on the heels of a string of celebrated independent projects, including 2020’s Halfway Off the Porch and 2021’s Fk Your Expectations Part 1 & Part 2. Imposter Syndrome will include previously shared singles “Mr. Put It On,” “TRU RELIGION,” and “Kevin,” all released earlier this year. Check out the fill tracklisting below.
In typical AG Club fashion, Impostor Syndrome was developed primarily in-house. Fans will be immersed in the Club’s recognizable energy and sample-driven beats. The album will also introduce a more eclectic range of production as the group experiments with more unconventional sounds and styles that will further define the group’s unique sonic identity.
Some familiar names can be found on the project including Sam Truth and Red Veil, as well some fresh new features from Na-Kel Smith and a few other surprise additions. Outside of the AG nucleus, listeners can also find additional production from DJ Dahi and Junior Varsity.
Impostor Syndrome will delve deep into the inner psyche of AG Club as they battle with their own idea of self-identity and authenticity. While the basis of their previous project revolved around deconstructing the many expectations bestowed upon them and their rapid success, Impostor Syndrome uses each track to readdress these expectations. This time, using a more vulnerable, yet intense response to societal perceptions of what fame, success and navigating the industry should look like.
Along with the imminent release of the new album, AG Club are set to jump back on the road this fall with Denzel Curry across parts of North America. Kicking off on September 16, the day of the album’s release, the tour begins in Charlotte, NC and travels through the Northeast and Midwest, including a stop in New York City at Terminal 5 on October 6 before wrapping up in Boston on October 8. Find the full routing below and visit www.agcncsf.com to purchase tickets. Earlier this summer, AG Club wrapped up their first-ever European headlining tour, which included sets at festivals like Wireless. They previously touring with Denzel (who referred to their set as “an insane live show you have to look out for”) and Pusha T separately across the west coast this spring. Later this year, AG Club will gear up for a string of headlining shows across major cities, to be announced soon.
With Imposter Syndrome, AG Club continue to carve out a new path in the lineage of DIY-spirited California hip hop.
