comment

Zug Izland, the self-proclaimed “dopest bangers”, have released a compilation album called Toxicology through Psychopathic Records.

The band, which was put together in 2002 by ICP’s Violent J, was the first rock band on Psychopathic, and this is a career retrospective.

A press release says, “Featuring some of the Motor City's finest musicians and taking its name from the notorious industrial site on the Detroit River, Zug Izland rocked the Juggalo community and the world over the span of two well-received albums, Cracked Tiles and 3:33. The band also toured with such noted acts as Kings X, Dope and opened for the legendary Black Flag at a fundraiser for the West Memphis Three Defense Fund.
Packed with highlights from their first two albums that defined the genre of toxic rock, Toxicology also features three brand new songs from Zug Izland, their first freshly recorded material in almost a decade. Zug Izland will be promoting Toxicology by touring with Insane Clown Posse in the /autumn of 2013, spreading their dangerous brand of rock-n-roll from coast to coast.
