The band returned after six years with the apocalyptic and politically-charged "Hallelujah Money" back in January, and they debuted four new songs—"Saturnz Barz," "Andromeda," "We've Got The Power" and "Ascension" last month. “Let Me Out” debuted earlier this month, all taken off Humanz, set next week on April 28.

In preparation for the release of their new record, the band have announced plans for a TV show, released an app that lets you explore their house, and announced a tour alongside their already scheduled Demon Dayz festival.

The city of Brussels livestreamed the art project for an hour as the four artists finished their work honoring the band. Check out the video below!
