The Slaughterhouse boys–Joe Budden, Royce Da 5’9”, Crooked I and Joell Ortiz–are gearing up to drop their latest album welcome to: Our House via Shady Records and they’re getting into the swing of things with their new video for the LP’s first single “Hammer Dance.” Check out a 30 second snippet of the clip above and tune into MTV Jams and MTV2 on Sunday 4/22 for the official premiere.
In March, MTV News caught up with Slaughterhouse on the “Hammer Dance” video set in Austin, Texas where they explained their vision behind the clip and gave an update on their forthcoming album. “I think it’s just a day in the life of Slaughterhouse, a lot of energy,” Crooked said, of the video. “We’re gonna give fans a chance to shine, and I think when it’s done, you’ll see how authentic it is. When we roll into town, we jell with people, no matter where they are, who they are, what part of the world they’re from. We’re just average dudes trying to do extraordinary things.”
An official release date has not been set for welcome to: Our House, but they confirm that the LP is close to finish. ”[We're] still working out minor tweaks, [but] it’s way more done than people know,” Royce said. “Marshall is actually mixing right now. He’s actually mixed the entire album, and that wasn’t even the original plan, so we’re super excited about that. He’s just taking songs to another level.”
